I decided to get a little ambitious with dinner and made myself a home-made cauliflower pizza from scratch! SO tasty! I made it quite a few times, and it gets easier and better each time. Making a good pizza is definitely a practice. I topped my pizza with my favorite vegetable toppings and sprinkled some cheese to give it a nice finish. This hit the spot and it made me so happy.
