Good morning sunshine! I definitely have to make up for yesterday’s lack of posting, so here I am. I have lots to do today, so thought I’d get right to it!
I have to fill you in on our scrumptious dinner last night… veggie pizza with crust made out of cauliflower! Yes, it’s really true! When I first saw this recipe, I almost couldn’t believe it. Pizza crust made out of a vegetable?! I love pizza, but I don’t like the extra fat and calories that come along with the (yummy) crust, so I definitely had to try out this recipe! I found it here, but I will copy it down here too so you don’t have to be clicking all over the place. I also revised it a little bit, so take your pick on which one you’d like to use.
Cauliflower Pizza Crust
1 cup cooked, rice cauliflower*
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. parsley
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray cookie sheet or pizza pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine riced cauliflower, cheese, egg, and spices.
Press evenly on pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe). Remove pan from oven, and add sauce and any toppings you wish! (I topped mine with sliced tomatoes, spinach, and basil. Yum!) Place under broiler on high until cheese is melted.
*I bought frozen cauliflower and cooked it according to the directions. I put the cauliflower in my food processor, blended it for a couple seconds, and there I had riced cauliflower!
Makes 2 servings. (Unless you have a man that eats for 5! Hence why I made two pizzas.)
It was mighty tasty! I even have a few pieces left over for lunch today. 🙂 I made another pizza for Cody that included pepperoni, black olives, and mushrooms (his favorite toppings). He even gave the *thumbs up* on the cauliflower pizza crust! It’s a winner folks! You have to try it!
Now I need to get going so I can check some things off of the “to do list”! On the list: clean the house, fold laundry, workout, run a few errands, and possibly bake a healthy snack or two. Catch ya later!
