Take back your cravings (and your health) with these hearty veggie pizza crusts!
Pizza is one of those foods people tend to give up altogether when they go Paleo – and understandably so. Most pizza dough is laden with gluten and processed ingredients, while toppings are generally greasy and overloaded with cheese.
Enter Paleo pizza. While you can make pizza dough with gluten-free flours, why not boost your vegetable intake with a crisp veggie crust? From the well-trodden territory of cauliflower crust pizza to the more unique carrot crusts and broccoli crusts, we’ve found it all.
