With Christmas and New Year’s behind us, you’re probably trying to get back on track with healthy eating. But you don’t have to sacrifice your favorite foods for a trimmed-down waistline. A cauliflower crust pizza gives you a healthy and delicious alternative to guilt-inducing pizza.
Now, cauliflower crusts do take a bit of commitment, time and effort. You’ve got to process the cauliflower into grain-like pieces before cooking and draining it. But it’s so worth it in the end.
And by replacing a flour-based dough with a cauliflower crust, you add an extra serving of vegetables that’s both tasty and satisfying – not to mention healthy!
Dr. Mercola shares that cauliflower can help to fight cancer, improve heart and brain health. Cauliflower also helps to detox the body and provide lots of nourishing antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and anti-inflammatory properties.
On top of all of these amazing health benefits, you get to top the cauliflower crust with lots of versatile and creative combinations. In fact, the cauliflower crust is just the beginning. What follows is a pizza that will knock your socks off.
There’s gorgonzola cheese and butternut squash for a hearty dinner. Tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella keep things classic. A pizza topped with spinach and artichokes makes for a fun dish to serve friends and family.
And if you like to branch out, try caramelized onions and roasted pears to really wow your partner. For something detoxifying, try Swiss chard and olives.
As you can see, you can totally enjoy pizza while getting back on track with your post-Christmas and New Year’s diet. Let us know if you try this healthy pizza alternative. We’d love to know!
