If you love pizza and you want to eat it all the time, you're always looking for ways to make it a little bit healthier. Cauliflower pizza crust is a regular on the menu and I’ve played around with several others including a Polenta crust and even a Swiss Chard crust. So when I came across this Lentil Pizza Crust, I knew I had to give it a try.

For the Crust:

  • 3/4 cup red lentils, soaked 1-24 hours
  • 1/2 cup water
