Tooth-friendly recipe: cauliflower pizza
Today we share another tooth-friendly recipe – cauliflower pizza. One of our team members is a celiac, so one of the biggest challenges to her diet is finding alternatives for ‘takeaway’ style foods as most of these contain wheat and gluten.
This pizza recipe is quick and easy but also a healthy alternative, especially for people that may have over indulged over the lockdown period and are wanting to cut out carbs.
You can eat it guilt-free because you know exactly what ingredients are being used, and to top it off, it’s also sugar-free (takeaway pizza can contain around 6 teaspoons of sugar)!
Read the full recipe below.
Makes 2 servings.
