Pizza, everybody loves it, but we don’t always love the carbs or calories. Well guess what? While you can use a traditional pizza crust to make this recipe, you don’t have to because there is a healthier grain free, low carb option. I made this gorgeous California Chicken Club Salad Pizza! (Cauliflower Crust-Paleo-Keto) with Cali’flour Foods Pizza Crusts, and trust me, you won’t miss the carbs!

If you have been a viewer of my blog for a while now, you know I love using cauliflower in place of rice and mashed potatoes, but I never jumped on the cauliflower pizza crust bandwagon. Why? Basically because until now I would have had to make the crust myself (yup, laziness won out). But now that delicious, low carb pizza crust can be delivered to your door I am all about the cauliflower pizza crust! Also, take a look at that Cali’flour Pizza Crust label below to see why I am so happy. Yup, 60 calories and 1 net carb per serving!

Make This Recipe Paleo or Keto:
In an effort to make everyone happy I will offer this recipe several ways:
Don’t Care? Use any crust you wish!
Paleo: use Cali’flour Pizza Crust of your choice and skip the mozzarella cheese
Keto: use whichever crust you prefer and cheese it up!
Can I just say my daughter came over after we photographed this recipe, helped me eat it after, and has made this recipe at least 5 times in the last two weeks! It’s so good and super healthy!
So What Else Can You Make With Cali’flour Crusts?

The California Club Salad Pizza:
I love adding salad to my pizzas. I do it all the time, but it’s usually a really simple arugula, lemon juice and olive oil combo. This time I went all out with a fresh romaine salad that includes all your favorite club sandwich ingredients…tomatoes, bacon, avocado and chicken! To keep it simple I use rotisserie chicken, but you could also use leftover roasted chicken.
