Low Carb Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Happy National Cheese Pizza Day! I realize that I’m not posting cheese pizza but how can I NOT blog about pizza on a pizza food holiday, right? Let me just start out by apologizing for the quality of these pictures. Honestly, I took these pictures months ago and fully intended to re-shoot; however, today’s food holiday sneaked up on me and I really want to share the low carb dish. So, just imagine that the pictures are fabulous :-)

In low carb circles, Cleochatra’s Cauliflower Crust Pizza is legendary. Cleochatra is the username used in low carb forums but she is the blog owner of http://yourlighterside.com. If you’ve never stopped by then I suggest you do so, right away.

This is one of those recipes that I had read about for years but never got around to trying it because it just sounded too good to be true. Pizza is probably my most favorite food on the planet and one of the items that I missed the most when I went low carb. I knew there was no way it would even be close so I just went on about my business. Fast forward to about six months ago when a fellow food blogger (thanks, Erin) was telling me how great the recipe was so I decided to try it. Boy, was I stunned … It really does taste like pizza crust! As you can probably tell by the quality of the pictures, I really didn’t expect the recipe to work and I never expected these pictures to see the light of day but … it’s amazing! Even persnickety hubby loves this recipe and can’t believe it tastes so good.

The recipe for this bad boy can be found at Your Lighter Side and I highly recommend you give it a go.

  1. I love this – and would love to make it….. But hubs is Type 1 diabetic, and it’s hard for him to deal with something so low in carbs. I’ll think of something LOL

  5. This looks so great! My husband does not like (although I’m not sure he’s ever tasted) cauliflower. I’m off work Friday so I think I might just sneak it in and cook it while he’s gone. All he will ever see is the finished pizza. I must go see this website. Thanks!
