This pizza is perfect for Passover ( or anytime) because it is grain free. It's light and crispy, low in carbs, and easy to make. It is delicious any time of the year, but is especially perfect for Passover.
Askenazi Jews ( those from Eastern European backgrounds as opposed to Jews from Middle Eastern backgrounds) do not eat rice or any flour with leavening during Passover. But they can eat "riced cauliflower" which looks and behaves like rice in most recipes but is a vegetable.
Because this crust is made with raw cauliflower ( don't stop reading) and then baked, it makes a perfect Passover dish. It's hard to believe because it doesn't taste like cauliflower. My husband loved it and thought it was made with rice . It makes a wonderful light dinner and doesn't leave us bloated or stuffed . I topped mine with sliced fresh tomatoes and herbs, but you could also put tomato sauce, additional cheese, and any toppings you like. If you do make it with tomato sauce, cook your crust first till cristpy; then add sauce and cheese and heat to melt cheese. Eat it with a simple salad and or a cup of soup.
