Cauliflower, Courgette and Goats’s Cheese Pizza

Gluten free and Vegetarian this pizza is delicious.  Discovered via Domini Kemp’s feature in The Irish Times Magazine she in turn credits her sister-in-law Doris Choi for this amazing recipe from the book ‘The Fresh Energy Cookbook: Detox Recipes to Supercharge your life’ a book co-written with Natalia Rose.
