Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe.

If the Paleo movement has a right to brag about any culinary achievement, that achievement has got to be the grain-free pizza. We’ve got vegetable crusts of various types. Protein-rich chicken “crusts.” Tapioca-flour crusts. Mini-pizzas in pepperoni “crusts.” Various other forms of grain-free delights. If “replacing pizza crust” were an art form, this probably would be the Renaissance.
