This is another delicious healthy pizza recipe for you to try! Making your pizza base with cauliflower is a great way to get some extra nutrients (especially vitamin C!) into your diet. It’s surprisingly delicious and holds well together, it also doesn’t leave me feeling as heavy as regular pizza. I’ve made this one with a vegetarian topping as recently I’ve been reducing the amount of meat I eat. This Roast Pumpkin, Spinach & Feta on Cauliflower Pizza Base is one of my favourite vegetarian pizzas because the flavours compliment each other really well.
This is a great recipe to whip out when you’re next entertaining, or even just as a treat for yourself – so easy, and a far healthier option than ordering a pizza. I guarantee you could make it in the time you wait for pizza to be delivered on a Friday night! Make choices your future self will thank you for 😉
