Cauliflower Pizza

Welcome to Tuesday! Tuesday’s are much busier than Monday’s for me, but that’s ok because we’re one step closer to the weekend! I have a busy week of studying ahead, so the weekend seems ages away right about now.

This morning, I woke up bright and early and whipped myself up a chocolate banana smoothie with one scoop of protein powder. I’ve been using pineapple flavored protein, but I just got peach mango in the mail so I’m pretty excited to run out so I can try this new flavor! Anyway, after breakfast it was time for leg day at the gym. Luckily, I wasn’t gone too long so I
got a jumpstart on my studies for the day.

Lunch was leftover cauliflower pizza that I made yesterday and decided to share with you guys! It was surprisingly delicious.

 

f you would’ve told me one year ago I’d be making cauliflower pizza, I would have told you that you’re crazy. My lifestyle has definitely transformed since then! Now I give you…

Cauliflower Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce
  • 2 c mozzerella cheese
  • 2 c parmesan cheese

The Process:

Preheat oven 450 degrees. Place the florets from you cauliflower head into a food processor. Process until it is fine and looks like wet sand.

Then, microwave for 4 minutes. Yes, I used a crockpot because I couldn’t find a big microwave safe bowl!

Put your microwaved, processed cauliflower on a kitchen towel. Let sit until cool enough to touch.

This is an important step: wring out all the water you can by using the kitchen towel. If you do not remove most of the water, your crust will fall apart!

Place the cauliflower in a mixing bowl. Add the flour, garlic, salt, and egg. Mix well.

Next, form your dough into a ball.

Spray your pan or baking sheet, then spread the dough evenly.

Bake the crust about 10-12 minutes, or until golden.

Once golden, add desired toppings. I used half a jar of spaghetti sauce, and added mozzerella & parmesan cheese.

Place in oven and bake for an additional 6-8 minutes, until cheese is melted.

Let cool a bit before you try to cut. You now have yourself cauliflower pizza!

The Verdict:

Surprisingly good. For not being a big cauliflower fan, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I definitely tasted the garlic in the crust which is probably the best thing. :-)

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!

Question of the day:

  • Have you ever tried cauliflower pizza?
  • Have you ever ventured out of your comfort zone and tried something new?
