It’s hard not to like pizza, am I right? Seriously, you can throw almost any combination of toppings onto a waiting dough and get a custom-made and delicious meal – who wouldn’t want a slice?
Whether you’re gluten-free or not, there is so much to love when it comes to making (and eating) a pie with a paleo pizza crust base.

With so many options, it’s easy to make a healthier version of everyone’s favorite dish: pizza!
