Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Pizza is one my absolute FAVORITE foods!
I mean, who doesn't like pizza?!?
However, every time I want to eat the whole pizza, not 1 or 2 slices.

So I was excited to see this lighter version of pizza!

I've been wanting to try this "Cauliflower Crust" for a while now and WOW!

I LOOVE this pizza crust.

I love how cheesy and flavorful the crust tastes in every bite.

It's really fun to make and incredibly easy!

You can easily eat this whole pizza without feeling overly stuffed afterwards.

A big A+ for Paula Dean, Well Done!

Oh and last night, Blake decided to grab some Mickey D's for dinner.
( not in a million years)

So I was more than happy to NOT have share this delicious Pizza :)

BTW I suck at sharing my food!  I think it's from having 6 brothers and sisters.
Food was gone fast in our house!
A favorite cereal....GONE the next day, so sad.
