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 and paleo friendly.

This cauliflower pizza crust is only made with four ingredients and is gluten free, dairy free, paleo, and whole30! 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.

Gluten – Free Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Are you a sweet potato or a regular potato person? I personally love sweet potatoes! You can make them savory, you can make them sweet – they are such a delicious add to meals!

My favorite type of pasta is gnocchi but I don’t eat regular gnocchi too often because I generally avoid gluten. I’ve found Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi to be a great substitute; however, I personally like making foods from scratch as often as possible in order to control what ingredients and how much of each ingredient are put into my food.

I’ve made this sweet potato gnocchi a few times now and it is great! It’s a lot easier to make than you would think. This recipe is both gluten free and vegan. The key ingredient in this recipe is Cassava flour.
