Cauliflower Pizza Crust; A Low Carb Option

As a diabetic, one thing I hate to not indulge in is pizza. I admit, I do still enjoy some here and there, but I always get thin crust. Lucky for me, I love thin crust over the doughy stuff so it’s not too much of a sacrifice.

However, I am always searching for new ways to make old favorites better and lower carb without sacrificing taste or texture. I love this Cauliflower Pizza Crust that Katie came up with for me. Cauliflower is one of the best things you can use to substitute in many recipes. I often use them in my mashed potatoes as they don’t take away too much of the great taste I love, but allow for me to enjoy my favorite side dish.

The other thing that is great about cauliflower is it is low cost, so it is perfect for those that are wanting a low carb option without having to spend a lot at the store. Cauliflower has about 30 g of carbs in an ENTIRE HEAD of it, so you can truly indulge in this pizza without worrying about a spike in your numbers.

  1. This is probably the most unique way I have seen to incorporate cauliflower into a kids diet. They wouldn’t suspect for moment that the crust is actually a veggie. It can be such a struggle to have kids eat something healthy because in their minds, if it is good for them, it must taste awful, and they won’t even give it a shot.
