Ground Beef and Banana Pepper Pizza

Have you ever had banana peppers on your pizza? I have had them on my sandwiches, but not on my pizza. I may be late to the game, but man oh man... they are amazing on pizza! They are halfway between a pickle and pepper and have a mild, tangy, slightly sweet taste. 

Add marinara sauce, seasoned ground beef, mozzarella cheese, and banana peppers on top of a cauliflower crust and you have a delicious tasting low carb pizza!

I used a Cali'Lite pizza crust which counts as 1/2 a Lean and 3 Greens for the entire crust on the 5 and 1 plan so you can have the whole thing! Currently, the Cali'Lite crusts can only be found online. Some grocery stores carry the Traditional crusts, but keep in mind... you can only have half of the Traditional crust as 1/2 Lean and 1 1/2 Greens. This is why I usually order the Lite crusts online.

Or you can always make your cauliflower crusts. Here is the link! Check it out!

Now go make this pizza! Yum!

The recipe calculations are based on the Cali'Lite crusts and not the traditional cauliflower crusts.
