If you are looking for a pizza crust that is hearty, delicious, and filled with veggies, this Paleo Eggplant Pizza Crust is for you. My traditional pizza crust is my go-to when I am craving a traditional thin-crust pizza dough, but I can’t get enough of this veggie packed version!
I love pizza. I mean, I REALLY love pizza. I personally don’t go for the store-bought gluten-free pizza crusts, or store-bought gluten-free cookies, crackers, etc. for that matter. I
often don’t find these things to be healthier then the regular options, just allergy-friendly. So, I opt to invent.
Making a crust that’s gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, and healthy? That’s delicious? I’ll take two, please! I have made tons of pizza crusts; from flatbread to cauliflower-based and this one takes the cake with the best reviews in my house!
Such a great way to get your kiddos to add more veggies into their diet!
