Cauliflower crust pizza with smoked salmon

Cauliflower crust pizza with smoked salmon

Based on 55 ratings

"A low carb alternative to pizza, this one is made using cauliflower as the crust. After being crisped up in the oven, the cauliflower crust can be topped with your usual suspects (tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni for example) or with something a bit more interesting, as we went for here with smoked salmon, ricotta, and dill."
