gluten free // the perfect cauliflower pizza crust

There's something about Friday nights & pizza (and of course a glass of wine ;))! While my Domino's days are over I still need that pizza fix, cauliflower to the rescue! While Joey was very much weirded out by watching this pie come together he was impressed by the end result, couldn't taste the cauliflower and the best we didn't feel sluggish after dinner. I foresee more gluten free pizza Fridays in our future!
