    Prosciutto Arugula Pizza

    Who else loves a tasty pizza? A Friday night with pizza and wine…you can count me in. Being dairy-free I always love finding new alternatives to still enjoying a delicious pizza.

I used a cauliflower crust, primal kitchen’s garlic alfredo sauce, arugula, prosciutto, and walnuts. It was like the perfect white pizza and added some variety aside from the common pizza toppings. It could also be made with just about any crust you prefer. You could use a flatbread, gluten free crust, cauliflower crust, or even a regular pizza…
