RECIPE: Fig and Prosciutto Pizza on Broccoli Crust (GF,DF)

Today’s recipe is a guest blog post from Kate over at The Tender Tummy I’ve followed Kate’s instagram for ages- she’s a follow IBD sufferer and creates the amazing healthy fee from recipes! So when she offered to contribute a recipe, I jumped at the chanced! She has come up with an amazing paleo friendly, gluten free and dairy free (does contain eggs) pizza recipe! Made from broccoli! Over to Kate…


Pizza is one of my all-time favorite foods.  When I decided to go Paleo to help heal my gut one of the first recipes I started working on was pizza crust.  In my opinion, a pizza crust must be crispy and able to hold toppings.  One of the challenges with making a pizza crust using vegetables is that they often come out soggy, bland and fall apart.  I have found that prebaking the crust and adding seasonings creates a super crispy and flavorful crust every single time!  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
