Pesto Keto Cauliflower Pizza

June 22, 2017



Pesto Keto Cauliflower Pizza

There’s nothing better than picking fresh basil from your garden, or finding the perfect leafy bunch at the farmer’s market. Whip together a batch of mouthwatering, homemade avocado oil pesto with that beautiful bunch of anise-flavored basil.

Add in a cauliflower crust, fresh veggies, Primal Kitchen® Vegan Ranch, Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil, and a top of mozzarella cheese, and you have yourself a low-carb, keto-friendly pizza party! 

The final highlight? Refined avocado oil handles heat better than other oils.
