Gluten free pizza

Gluten free "pizza"

When I see something I just make it and it turns out different than the picture.  I like the salad pizza concept better. 
I adopted the recipe a little bit by putting lemon peel, kale, and pepitas and instead of pine nuts.  Here us the original recipe. Great website for ideas on clean eating.
