Personal Notes:
This pizza is soooooooo good. The crust is very versatile and can be used with any other type of pizza toppings or even as a quiche crust. Because it uses almond flour, it is much more filling than a typical pizza because of the fiber. The kale pesto can also be used on many other dishes, and the brazil nut cheese can be used on lots of other stuff - you can also use cashews vs brazil nuts.
