Craving pizza but don't want (or can't have) the dough? We think this Asia meets Italy rice crust pizza from Cafe Nilson is a brilliant idea! It has all the tasty ingredients you want on your pie but with a delicious alternative crust. Want to make it vegan? Use a sticky rice (we like sweet brown rice) to eliminate the egg and top with your favorite dairy-free cheese and meat alternative.
