Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Pizza is hands down one of my favorite foods. A few years ago, I began dabbling with making cauliflower pizza crusts. The biggest issues that I found was that the crusts didn’t stick together or primarily consisted of cheese. I wanted to make a cauliflower pizza crust that 1) actually stayed together, 2) was made with simple, wholesome ingredients, and 3) was dairy free/paleo friendly.

This cauliflower pizza crust is only made with four ingredients and is gluten free, dairy free, and paleo! This crust is very simple and tastes plain, similar to how a regular pizza crust would also taste plain by itself. I like to think of the crust as the canvas and and the toppings are like the paint.

Blueberry Basil Smoothie

I picked up basil from the grocery store the other week and they only had the basil plant. I decided to pot it in an old, glass peanut butter jar, thinking that it wouldn’t last long in my windowsill. I have tried to grow basil plants multiple times in my windowsill, but every time have been unsuccessful. Maybe because it’s quarantine and I’m home and my basil plant is getting the TLC it needs, but it is thriving in my windowsill! Now, I’m going to have to think about re-potting it in an actual pot..

My new basil plant as well as the warmer weather inspired me to make this Blueberry Basil smoothie. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and whole 30. It only requires 4 ingredients to make!
