The Hottest Way to Make Pizza!
Even if you aren't gluten-free, maybe you wonder how you can cut down on some of the carbs or calories in your Friday night pizza dinner. This is super easy and no one will even know you swapped out that premade wheat crust for something made from a VEGETABLE! Yay for cauliflower! Seriously. I watched about four YouTube videos of how to "rice" cauliflower fearing that it would be too complicated to make it worth my or Your time. But I was wrong, it's so easy.
Start like this: Preheat your oven to 375 F.
Roughly chop your cauliflower and toss it in your food processor.
Add a little water and turn in on. It "rices" the cauliflower in seconds into small little granules.
Next, mix the cauliflower, 1-2 eggs, and 1/2 cup shredded or grated cheese of your choice together in a large bowl. Add salt, pepper and any other herbs you like: parsley, oregano, basil. I also added finely chopped red onion to this crust.
Spread this mixture onto a baking sheet, I used my Silpat liner just to make life easier.
Put your crust in the oven and now you'll have some time to prep your pizza toppings or clean up the kitchen. Mine was in the oven for about 40 minutes until it became lightly golden brown.
You can top this just as you would a regular pizza crust. Tonight I added canadian bacon (Nitrate Free), marinara, mushrooms, peppers, kale, more fresh herbs and goat cheese. Everything I make usually ends up over a bed of dark leafy greens so I made myself a pizza salad. I would recommend using 2 eggs or 1 egg and 1 egg white or extra cheese to help bind the crust. This was my first attempt and it tasted great.
I've already been experimenting with other ways to cook with riced cauliflower. Next recipe will be for cauliflower tuna cakes. Stay tuned and let me know if you try this disguise, especially with your husbands or kids!
