Cauli-pizza!

As I’ve mentioned many times before, veggies are just not my friend. I’m doing much better at trying new things but it’s still a struggle to find ones I like, or at least make them in a way that I can tolerate.

I’ve recently tried “cauli-rice” and it was a success, so when I saw a recipe for Cheesy Garlic Bread (made with cauliflower), I was sold. If you put cheese and garlic on anything, I’m sure it’s a win-win. So, with a half of head of cauliflower leftover from last week’s cauli-rice, I decided to give this a go. I have very limited kitchen skills, and this is super easy!

Ingredients:

Cooked, “riced” cauliflower (I used 2 cups cooked, or half a head, but you can half the recipe)
Lots of mozzarella cheese (and parmesan, if you choose)
2 eggs
garlic (of course!)
pizza seasonings (oregano, parsley, basil, etc.)
olive oil
pizza toppings

And now how to cook it!

  1. Preheat the oven to 450′
  2. “Rice” your cauliflower.  (I love my Cuisinart for this! Awesome video on how to do this here.)

  3. Mix together cauliflower rice, half a cup of cheese, garlic, seasonings, and eggs.
  4. Press mixture onto an olive-oiled pizza pan (or baking sheet)
  5. Bake the “crust” for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven; add toppings of choice, and throw back in the oven until the cheese is melted, or about 5-10 minutes (I was worried about overcooking this, but because of how much moisture the cauliflower holds, I could have probably baked in an extra 10 minutes)!
  7. And viola!! Surprisingly YUMMY cauliflower pizza!!

Does it actually taste like cauliflower? It is one of the veggies I’m not a fan of but I could get around it if it tasted like cheese. 🙂

That’s the great thing, Cindy – you taste the cheese and garlic and VERY minimal cauliflower flavor! I am not a huge fan, but if you’re doing low-carb and don’t mind the fat content of cheese, try it! Plus it’s super cheap to make so if you hate it, not a big loss 🙂
