I have always wanted to make a cauliflower crust that was dairy free becasue many low carb recipes have cheese which can not be tolerated by Paleo people. The toppings you choose are up to you. I added an organic pastured/ grass fed cheese because I am eating cheese this week. My recipe was very yummy and fresh basil from my new plant that I got at the farmers market. I hope I can keep it alive in this hot summer weather. Let me know what you think of my crust by leaving a comment and let me know what toppings you chose. There is a great recipe that uses cheese in my friends wonderful diet book Eat Fat Lose Fat that inspired this dairy free crust variation.

Grate the cauliflower in a food processor with the grater attachment or grate it by hand with a cheese grater. Place the grated cauliflower in steamer pot over a few inches of water and salt it generously. Turn it on high then steam it until aldente or slightly cooked but not mushy. Place the cooked cauliflower in a clean hand towel and squeeze out the water very well. Mix the eggs, flax, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large bowl and let it gel for 5 minutes. Add the cauliflower and mix well. Line a cookie sheet with parchment then spoon out the pizza into two 8 inch pizzas about 1/3 inch thick. Bake the crust for 15 minutes on 350 degrees. Place the tomato paste or sauce on the crust thinly about 1-2 tbsp on each pizza. Top the sauce with cheese and desired toppings and bake for 10 more minutes still at 350 degrees. Turn the oven to broil and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Remove from the oven and top with fresh basil or parsley. Slice and enjoy.

I had some questions myself when I wanted to try ketois but all the info was hard to find and scattered all over the web. I wished there was one easy guide to follow with all the tips and tricks in one place from a veteran who has tried it herself. Well now there is in a great book from Kim Knoch of Eat Fat Lose Fat Blog. She lost 40 lbs and was so excited she had to share keto with the world. The great thing about her book is that she writes from experience with her own health and weight problems.
I feel like people who are natrually thin and fit they don’t have any clue what many of us have been through as an overweight child all the way to being an obese college student. When I read Kim’s book I was like “this chick gets me!” You can hear the pain and the struggle she has been through. She knows the challenges that over eaters and/or chronic dieters face and you can hear the hope in her voice that comes through when she finally found Keto! Kim says it was like the light went on and it clicked!!! I felt a connection with her after reading and you will too!
This book so great because it is easy to read, logically laid out and full of hints and tips the whole way.
