Cauliflower Pizza Recipe

Cauliflower is an annual plant that reproduces from seeds and grows best in cool daytime temperatures with abundant sunlight and moist soil. The head is the edible portion of the plant. It resembles that of broccoli but differs in color, texture and of course flavor of the edible flower buds.

Cauliflower is rich in phytochemicals and has a high level of anti-inflammatory compounds. It has been attributed some ability to fight cancer cells, heart disease, and brain disease. As it low in calories and rich in fiber, it also aids in weight loss when integrated into a healthy diet.
