Paleo Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza

If I was stuck on a deserted island and had the choice of one food to eat, I would hands down choose pizza!

My name is Tina and I am a pizza addict. I like all kinds of pizza. Veggies, meat lovers, pineapple (yes, I went there), and everything in-between.

What’s great about pizza is that there are SO many ways you can make it, including different types of crust. Although, I do enjoy a traditional wheat flour crust pizza (balance my friends) from time to time, my body doesn’t enjoy it as much because gluten and I aren’t great friends. Gluten is a common culprit for many people and their health issues/concerns. Most don’t realize that symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, bloating, acne, etc. can all be related to gluten consumption. So, I look to alternatives to still enjoy my most favourite food on the planet.

Being a Holistic Nutritionist in this century is so exciting because so many health and wellness companies are popping up left, right and center with amazing health conscious products. One of my favourite things to do in my practice is take my clients on grocery store tours to help them read labels and to show them all the alternatives out there. Don’t worry, the products are always equally as delicious, if not better!

One of those companies is Simple Mills. They have taken classics like chocolate chip cookies, pancakes, cupcakes and pizza and made their own spin on them with minimal ingredients that are healthier for you. What’s great about their almond flour pizza mix is that all you have to do is add apple cider vinegar, olive oil (or avocado oil) and water to the mix and you have some dough!

I’ve whipped up this delicious Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza with Caesar Dressing to share with you! The recipe that is. I wish I could virtually send a piece to all of you!

Toppings for Pizza*
