Rejoice! Tuesday, February 9 is National Pizza Day (AND Fat Tuesday). While nothing gives me great pleasure like a celebration, if you’re anything like me, I like to eat clean during the week and save my pizza parties for the weekends. This cauliflower pizza crust recipe, however, is totally Tuesday appropriate.


You’ll need:

  • Cauliflower: one head, stalk removed, or two pounds of florets.
  • Cheese: 1 cup of grated Parmesan. (You can also use any shredded cheese of your choice, like mozzarella, to sprinkle on top for later.)
  • Eggs: 1 large egg
  • Pizza sauce: 1 cup
  • Seasonings: Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
  • Toppings (optional): Garlic cloves, shredded mozzarella, oregano leaves, basil leaves, etc.


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or get our your pizza stone if you have one.

1.) Break the cauliflower into florets if they aren’t already in pieces, and pulse in a food processor until fine.

  • TIP: If you don’t have a food processor or just don’t feel like hauling it out, you can use a blender. Just place the cauliflower in the blender and fill it up with water. After about three pulses your cauliflower will be perfectly fine. You may have to do this a couple times depending on how much cauliflower you have. Allow your cauliflower to drain well in a colander.
  • TIP: You can also squeeze the excess water out by placing the cauliflower in a cheese cloth and squeezing over the sink. Just make sure the cauliflower has cooled down before doing so.

2.) Next, in a medium sized bowl, combine the cauliflower with 1/2 cup of parmesan, oregano, salt and pepper, eggs. Mix well.

3.) Transfer the mixture to the center of the baking sheet or the pizza crust and pat down in a circular shape, making sure the crust is flat and evened out. Bake for 20 minutes


My Whole30 is officially wholly complete! I can’t believe I did it, and aside from just a couple beers he had, Jody did it, too! The Whole30 is exactly what it sounds like – a 30-day nutritional program in which you eat nothing but whole foods in the hopes you’ll balance your hormones, reduce inflammation, and reset your relationship with foods. In this post, I’ll list the foods I eliminated, the foods I enjoyed, the benefits I got out of the Whole30, the things I didn’t like about the Whole30, and what this experience has taught me.

Cashews, almonds, and veggies have gone a long way for snacks, but as someone who really does love vegetables, raw veggies can get a bit dull after awhile. These roasted carrots are hearty – a perfect in-between meal snack with a couple hard boiled eggs or as a side dish with lunch or dinner.

“We’re so worried about what we eat during the time between Christmas and New Years that we forget it’s the months between New Years and Christmas with which we should be really more concerned.” Translation: enjoy the holidays but get back on track thereafter. So that’s what I’m setting out to do with the help of the Whole30.
