Did you start off this year with a goal to eat healthier and now after a couple of weeks you find yourself craving pizza? Then here is a recipe for a healthier option. Instead of the usual bread crust, this pizza has a crust made of cauliflower. It is another way to eat more veggies.
2 cups “riced” cauliflower
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
choice of pizza toppings
*Place cauliflower pieces into a food processor and pulse a few times until the cauliflower is riced. (refer to previous post to see how you can save time on this step with a little planning in advance.)
*Transfer riced cauliflower to a skillet and cook for 5 to 10 minutes stirring often. When the cauliflower has softened remove from heat and allow to cool.
*When cool, place in a clean cloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
*Place in a bowl. Add cheese and egg. Mix.
*Line a baking sheet or stone with a silicone mat or parchment paper and spray with olive oil.
*Spoon mixture onto parchment paper and form into a pizza crust that is about ¼ inch thick. You can make a big pizza, but I prefer to make individual pizzas. Individual-sized pizzas are easier to turn over and allow each person to chose the toppings they prefer.
*Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until crust is lightly brown.
*Remove from oven. Use a spatula to gently flip crust over.
*Add pizza sauce, cheese and your favorite cooked toppings.
*Return pizza to oven and bake until cheese is lightly browned.
*Pizza will be very hot so allow to cool, then enjoy.
