Cauliflower Crust Pizza With Homemade Pesto

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.

What are your favorite pizza toppings?

    • It stands for Community Sponsored Agriculture – we pay the farmer a lump sum at the beginning of their season and in return they give us a box of vegetables every other week.
