So tonight I wanted one of my favorite dishes, pizza!! Decided to try a new recipe out that calls for a paleo and gluten free crust using cauliflower. Some recipes call for a cup of cheese to hold together better, i decided to make my creamy cashew cheese substitute instead. Made a nutty delicious crust just have to make sure you cook it long enough to ensure adhesion or it will fall apart. I added spinach, dates, and goat cheese on mine- choose whatever flavors you like!
1 head of cauliflower
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 cup water
1 tbl italian spices dried or 1/4 cup fresh chopped
1 tbl avocado or olive oil
2 cups tomato

For dough add water to cashews and sit over night or for at least 2 hours. cut up cauliflower and place in food processor chop up fine. Microwave cauliflower in pyrex dish for 7 minutes. Ring out and excess water. Remove water from cashews and pulverize in blender. It should look like paste. Addthis to cauliflower along with egg and spices, mix.

Cook in pre-heated 425 degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until browned all over. Remove and cool 5-15 minutes. Add sauce or tomatoes and any toppings you like.
