Paleo pumpkin pizza crust [Gluten free, Grain free, Dairy free]

Super quick and simple alternative paleo pizza crust – sit down, Cauli… Pumpkin, suit up!

I’ve tried the cauli crust and really enjoyed it, but decided to give a pumpkin crust a go. I am so glad I did! This is far easier and quicker than the cauli base – no mucking about with squeezing and draining and burning your fingers in the process!

5. Allow the ‘dough’ to rest for 10 minutes to allow the psyllium husk to do its thing.

7. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, or until edges are browned. 

8. Remove from oven, add toppings of your choice, stick it back into the oven until toppings are cooked to your satisfaction, remove and enjoy!! (Ok, wait for it to cool down a bit first… Then enjoy!
