Cauliflower Crust Paleo Pizza

Enjoy a Paleo Pizza for dinner with a cauliflower crust. You can add any of your favorite toppings! Don't you just love paleo recipes. I love to top my pizza with fresh herbs.

Cindy's Tip! In a hurry just cut the head of cauliflower into florets and place in a microwave bowl then add water to cover half.  Set the timer for 7 minutes, drain then process!  

Disclaimer! I like a little cheese on my pizza but feel free to omit. Sauté up some greens or top with left over chicken or meatballs.  Go ahead make a pizza perfect for you!

I love using my 12inch Lodge cast iron pans!  You can prepare, bake and serve out of these pan.  I love one-pot recipes.
