The word “detox” is often associated with juice fasts and stringent cleanses, but it doesn’t have to be so drastic. It’s far more important to create healthy habits that can be maintained for life, which is why I share a gentler approach to detoxing — one that includes pizza! — in my new cookbook, Everyday Detox.
An easy way to get started is to simplify your meals and add more vegetables. That’s what makes this recipe so great!
The Cauliflower Pizza below is a delicious detox-friendly upgrade, as it features a vegetable-based crust topped with anything you like, including cheese! It’s comfort food like this that makes detoxing so easy and approachable. If a recipe has a long ingredient list or complicated directions, I won’t even bother trying it! So, rest assured that if a lazy home cook like me can turn vegetables into a tasty pizza, you can too.
Cauliflower Flatbread Pizza
This cauliflower pizza recipe is as fast as it gets, since you don’t need to cook or cool the cauliflower ahead of time. The key to getting a truly flatbreadlike crust is wringing out the cauliflower thoroughly, removing as much moisture as possible. You’ll be amazed at the dry texture of this low-carb and protein-rich alternative, which can be enjoyed with your favorite pizza toppings or used as a flatbread for sandwiches. You may want to double or triple this recipe and freeze the extras for a quick pizza night in the future!
