Passover is in full swing. The matzo is flowing, the questions have been answered, and we are deyinued out. This is also the time when one begins to wonder what to eat. Unlike years past, this year Passover isn’t a shift at all for me. Since becoming gluten free I don’t really eat chametz which has made this pretty easy. I purchased ONE and ONLY ONE box of gluten free matzo because that stuff is expensive! Talk about exploiting the situation, sheesh! It cost me $9.00 for one box!
Because gluten free matzo is equivalent to gold in my mind I am using my pieces wisely. I of course will have one honorary matzo pizza but I don’t want to use all of my rations on this traditional treat. To help remedy the situation I made Cauliflower Pizza dough… a Passover must!
Cauliflower Pizza is great for any time of the year but is especially nice during Passover. Its low calorie, nutritious, and best of all… delicious! It is also super easy to make.
So put away that matzo and enjoy a new type of Passover pizza!
