You told us how much you loved our original Cauliflower Crust Pizza so we've kicked it up a notch with this latest recipe, White Spinach Pizza! We've taken our ever popular Cauliflower Crust and topped it with the perfect combination of fresh and flavorful ingredients. You'll impress the whole family when you whip up this healthy artisan "pizza". You can use a normal pizza pan to bake your crust but we've found if you bake the crust on a pizza stone you get an even crispier crust. You can find an affordable pizza stone at most discount stores like TJ Maxx, HomeGoods or Big Lots.
