Cauliflower Pizza with Colorful Vegetable Toppings

Cauliflower Pizza with Colorful Vegetable Toppings

I have been craving cauliflower pizza for awhile! It is so delicious, has very few carbs, is full of healthy vegetables and is gluten free as well.  So I finally decided to give it a try again.

I bought a whole cauliflower to make…

Roasted Vegetable Quiche

Roasted Vegetable Quiche

I tend to make frittatas a lot because they are so delicious and easy and there is no need to make a crust. But I was in the mood for a real quiche, so to make it extra easy I bought a pre-made crust at the grocery store to make one. This really does make it simple, almost as simple as making a frittata.
