The trend has been gaining popularity around the globe.

Cauliflower, that white, bland but versatile vegetable, is all the rage. Think cauliflower rice and using it as a gluten-free pizza base alternative.
When making a cauliflower-crust pizza from scratch, be sure to squeeze the chopped cauliflower in kitchen towels to get rid of as much liquid as possible, so that the crust will not be soggy.
