Okay, hold on.
You're on the right site.
Don't go anywhere.
I went Low Carb on you today. I know you're all scratching your heads thinking you hit the wrong button. But it's me!
Really it is.
I can do healthy.
Really I can!
See! Not only Low Carb but so full of flavour it will blow your mind. My friend Mellissa from I Breathe... I'm Hungry... asked me to guest post for her. Not only guest post but I have the distinct honour of being her first guest post. I could not be more thrilled and touched that Mellissa trusted me to do this for her. I am not typically known for healthy or low carb food. I'm sort of the anti low carb blog. But I love a challenge and was really intrigued to see if I could do this. It's really opened my eyes to how difficult it is to develop great recipes for special diets. I give people credit who follow a low carb lifestyle for either health or weight reasons. It's so much harder to come up with recipes without that go to sugar ingredient.
I met Mellz, I love to call her that just to drive her mad, through food blogging. I really cannot remember how we connected initially. We were reading each other's blogs and I think we were both drawn to each other's sense of humour. I sent Mellz an email and she won my heart with her sincere personality and snarky wit. I love a gal who can out-snark me. Every email I get from her has me rolling on the floor in fits in laughter. She is so sharp and so funny. She pulls off one-liners with ease. And the chick can cook. And bake. Like mad skillz people. This woman is going to end up on tv one day, mark my words. Of course I'll want a cut of the action, cuz you know, that's what besties do when one of them hits the big time. And they shoe shop. Which I'm totally down for just so you know Mellz. Manolo's here we come!
So head on over to my bestie's blog I Breathe... I'm Hungry... for the recipe to my Roasted Cauliflower Pizza with Baby Arugula and Roasted Garlic. It sounds really complicated but it's not. It is however delish. Even if you are not following a low carb diet this pizza will impress you. It's got such a rich, sweet taste to it. The roasted cauliflower just takes the crust to the next level. And the roasted garlic on top is pure heaven. I sure hope you all like this recipe. I wanted to do Mellz proud and show I can do more than just sugar laden, deep-fried food. I sincerely hope I've met the challenge today. Thanks to Mellz for her continued friendship and making me push my boundaries to explore something outside the norm. I loves ya sistah!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
I came to cauliflower late in life and am loving this pizza - roasting cauliflower just makes it sing and I adore the spice in arugula! Great combo!
Me too Claudia. Now I love it. Thanks so much for your kind words and for visiting.
Kim, this is perfection--healthy and vegetarian to boot. Never would have thought to make a crust like this!
I know right! Healthy, low carb, gluten free and vegetarian. The cauliflower pizzas are definitely the way to go for anyone looking to healthy up a pizza.

You use cauliflower for the pizza crust?! That's unheard of! I'm so curious about the recipe now and will check the guest post now. Wow, this pizza looks DELICIOUS!
Yeppers, it's a cool idea. Just had to try it out. Really popular with the low carb folks. It's neat cuz it's also gluten free. Plus it just tastes amazing.
What a deliciously different pizza. I've never heard of roasted cauliflower pizza, but it looks SO good! Even better it's vegetarian and healthy! Definitely ticking all the boxes on this one.
Thanks so much. It's cool that it hits all the healthy marks- low carb, gf, and vegetarian. I was so happy with this one.
I love this! I think I could actually eat that pizza.
You could. And should! So good Trish, you will not believe how tasty it is.

Way to step out of your comfort zone! You know how much I want to marry cauliflower, so I love this crust!
Thanks. I am pretty thrilled with how it turned out. Lol, then this is just for you Anna. Marry away.
I eat pizza often but adding cauliflower and arugula to a pizza is new for me! and best of all, it's low carb... I don't need to worry about eating more than one slice!
It's a cool concept to use the cauliflower as a crust. Such a neat way for low carb-ers to get their pizza fix.

this pizza looks awesome! i've done the whole low-carb thing before with food, and i've used cauliflower as a sub for mashed potatoes, but pizza crust? LOVE that idea. i love everything about this, and i could use a good pizza recipe that isn't a million calories. 🙂
i feel the same way with all the baking on the blog; i wonder if people think i just know how to bake and that's it, or just assume i make cake for breakfast (i don't...well...mostly i don't). you did a great job with this! i know you're more than just ice cream and trix krispies. 🙂
I like the idea of low carb but the reality is I do eat them. I would have trouble doing it all the time I think. But this was fun to challenge myself to do away with sugar and think outside the box. It makes a tasty crust, especially if you roast it first.
I know right. I really don't eat ice cream and cheesecake and krispies all the time. I must post way too many desserts cuz someone was surprised by my meatless monday post. I was like, er how long has it been since I posted pizza for someone to think that. Lol.
I've been wanting to try cauliflower pizza crust! This looks tasty!
You must try it Stephanie. It's so good. I was really surprised I liked cuz I am such a traditionalist when it comes to pizza. We eat pizza a few times a week in some way, shape or form.
he he he...glad to be here reading about you and your beastie oops! bestie...and I was put off by the title but...now it is a must try recipe...thanks a bunch to you and your bestie...have fun shoe shopping...
Lol, it sounds all fancy shmancy but it's really not. It's so good. And good for you which is super fab. I love me some shoes...yet I find myself barefoot all the time. I just like looking at them and dreaming about them. But wearing them is a whole different story. Lol!
