“Non-gluten,” “Non-dairy” and “Vegan” have become the new buzz words! For me, it’s nothing new. I was raised on a vegetarian diet before it became “Hip.” When I was growing-up, a good meal was a plate full of meat and potatoes but not for me and my eight siblings.
It’s easy for me to embrace a cauliflower crusted pizza with dairy-less cheese but I do have high standards. It better taste good too! Of course, when it’s made with love by someone you love, that’s the best with a “Piz-za my heart!”
My daughter, Marianna, made me the delicious pizza pictured above. It is low in carbohydrates, which means low in sugar. So, if you are prone to Diabetes, this is the pizza for you! This amazing pizza is made with all plant-based ingredients.
For us, the crisper the cauliflower crust, the better. It was topped with a cashew based Alfredo sauce, fresh vegetables and Burata style mozzarella vegan cheese made mostly of coconuts.
A trip to our local Farmer’s Market
We found most of the produce for our pizza, including three kinds of basal, at our local Farmer’s Market!
Grazing through the Farmer’s Market is always a fun mother/daughter expedition for us.
It’s an adventure to explore the variety of fruits and vegetables that are on display. If the vendors offer us free samples, we are eager to reply, ‘Yes, please!’ 🙂
It’s fun to support your local farmers. Try being creative in your food preparations and enjoy healthy, delicious alternatives in eating.
