Creamy Tomato Basil Pizza on Cauliflower Crust

7 Jun

I bought two huge heads of cauliflower the other day. So what was the first thing I thought of to do? Make a cauliflower pizza. But this time, I wanted to change it up from the typical pizza. I was craving some creamy, yet still that same delicious tomato taste at the same time. What did that bring to mind? Creamy tomato basil soup.

So creamy tomato basil it was. But this sauce is not filled with your typical heavy whipping cream. No, this is made with the light yet still creamy texture of greek yogurt and cottage cheese. Mixed in some fresh tomato sauce and a couple other things, and there I had it, the taste I was craving, creamy, cheesy, and tomato-y (okay so I know that isn’t exactly a word, but you understand)! And of course, cauliflower crusts are delicious in themselves, now that I’ve perfected the recipe of it here.

Desiring a delicious and healthy spin on your typical pizza? You must try this!
