[by Kate — guest gluten-free blog author

Cauliflower-Based GF Pizza Crust

Gluten-Free, Low-Carb, and Vegetarian Pizza Crust Recipe

[mike's intro]: Kate has been quite creative with her latest gluten-free diet recipe that will have you wondering how a pizza-crust that doesn't contain "flour(s)" can exist and be such a delicious low-carb (lacto) vegetarian alternative to "regular" GF pizza crusts.  The photo of her finished pizza (above) should certainly whet your appetite and arouse some intrigue!

In addition to publishing her recipes on this GF blog and on our Gluten-Free Recipes Library, Kate will also be publishing her latest gluten-free recipes on her new "Kate's Guide to Your Inner Foodie" blog that she recently created.  Below are excerpts from her newest and fantastic pizza-crust recipe work along with links to the full recipe and discussion on her blog.  Enjoy!

Kate's Cauliflower Pizza Crust story...

I've always heard that bacon is the hardest things for vegetarians and vegans to give up and, also, the hardest food for them to continue to resist eating through the course of their commitments to either diet. I think pizza is that evil, siren of a food for a lot of Gluten Free and Low-Carb eaters. In fact, I know that many people who have gone Gluten Free due to Celiac Disease or other issues crave pizza so much that they dream about it at night.

Happily, dreams can come true--at least in the realm of pizza consumption--regardless of whether you're eating a Gluten Free and/or Low-Carb diet through the versatile miracle that is cauliflower.

[mike]:  For the simple fact that, as Kate stated in her blog, "let me say that this Cauliflower Pizza Crust is simply amazing",... everyone that wants a great gluten-free pizza-crust will certainly need to consider this recipe.  And, if that was not good enough, I think many people that want to live a lower-carb, blood-sugar and diabetic-friendly diet (in addition to gluten-free) will enjoy this fantastic pizza-crust option for both reasons.   Thanks Kate!  I hope to post this to our recipe library soon.

This looks delicious! I tried to make a gluten-free base with Cauliflower but I added too much salt and it crumbled a little bit and was too thin...I will definitely try this though! Does it fill you up?
