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!
