Keto Cauliflower Pizza Recipe

A gluten-free pizza crust that doesn’t fall apart when cut into slices? Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? Well, now that crispy pizza dream is a reality. And it all starts with cauliflower rice, an egg, and some cheese (grated Parmesan or mozzarella – your choice).

Of course, you can add some classic pizza spices too, but you can also save that for the toppings. Once you perfect your new pizza baking skills, then you can expand your low-carb expertise into the area of keto cheesy cauliflower bread sticks, too – just saying.

There is no excuse to miss out on eating pizza – it is all a matter of eating with a healthy mindset and choosing the right ingredients. As far as toppings go, choose what you like, whether it is pepperoni or leftover slow-cooker shredded chicken.

If you like a bit of spinach along with a handful of fresh basil, just toss it on! Peppers, green onions, hot pepper flakes, avocado… Yum! Stick to the many vegetables that grow above the ground, and chances are good that you will be consuming far fewer carbs compared to those root vegetables that grow below the soil.

Sugar-laden drinks are a no-go with a keto lifestyle, so why not try an avocado green smoothie on the side instead? It is far more nourishing than any processed drink you can buy at the store, and it happens to be incredibly energizing too!
