I haven’t been super specific on this blog about my current eating habits, beyond “eat healing foods.” That includes incorporating a lot of fermented and probiotic foods, nutrient-dense veggies (not raw though – my system can’t handle it), vitamins & supplements, and making sure my meat & animal products are antibiotic- and hormone-free. I’ve also cut out grains, dairy, and refined sugar. I can tell a huge improvement in my health since I started eating this way, so I plan on continuing for the foreseeable future.
All the being said.. pizza is not a food that I can eat anymore without getting sick. Sad face. HOWEVER!
We got cauliflower and parsley in our CSA box last time, so I made cauliflower personal pizza crusts (using this recipe) and a parsley-walnut pesto (using this infographic).. I also had some pasta sauce in the pantry so we did half with pesto and half with tomato sauce.
It tasted amazing. My poor little pizza-free heart was singing.
We topped our pizzas with:
- goat cheese (this is technically dairy, but it’s a form that I can handle every once in a while)
- mozzarella for Josh (I ended up using a little on my smaller pizza; IT WAS A MISTAKE)
- nitrate-free turkey pepperoni for Josh
- chicken for me
- green bell pepper
- white onion
- a “gourmet mushrooms” mix from Publix
- brussels sprouts
They were SO. YUMMY. If we get more cauliflower in this week’s CSA box, I might just have to make them again – but this time without mozzarella 😛 I didn’t need it! The goat cheese was a fine substitute.
