Cauliflower Crust Nacho Pizza Recipe — Two game day classics combined into one delicious (and secretly healthy) pie!

We interrupt your regular day of eating program for something a little more epic and appetizing than my half eaten bananas and salmon patties.
I’m partnering with The Blooming Oven to share some awesome game day inspired recipes just in time for the big game! No matter what team you are rooting for, you can always root for team FOOD.
A lot of people ask me how I come with some of the recipes I do. Mostly because they’re unique, or the PC term for weird.
Don’t worry, I take that as one of the biggest compliments someone could give me. A lot of times, the term weird is used for something out of the ordinary, which makes me one pretty unique individual if I’m called weird on a regular basis. BOSS.
Long story short, I am the most indecisive person, especially when it comes to food. So instead of deciding between two foods, I simply combine them.
Exhibit: Nacho Pizza.
shout out to Mr. Man-friend for being my hand model. 🙂
What’s more game day than Nachos?! And Pizza?! Why chose one when you can eat them both with one hand, and not risk having a mountain of melted cheese and sour cream land in your lap. Call me strange ( I dare you), but that’s not exactly how I like to cheer on football and analyze commercials on a Sunday night.
Now I am no stranger to the world of cauliflower crusts. What I am a stranger to, is one that I actually like. All the ones I’ve attempted are either…
LOADED with cheese.
Soggy AND Loaded with cheese.
Straight up nasty.
Which is why I was super pumped and fell in love with the Cauli-Crust the first time I tried it.
It passed the test in just about every area on my cauli-crust burn list.
Crispy not soggy.
Not made with ANY cheese.
I could pick it up with my hands, no fork and knife needed.
It was already made for me.
It tasted awesome.
And lucky for me (or maybe not so when I get less pizza..) it’s boyfriend-approved too!
So for the next three days, I’ll be sharing all the ways I have doctored up this paleo and gluten-free friendly crust just in time for your game day grub spread.
