Cauliflower Pizza

In going with the low-carb theme, we made a no-carb pizza this past weekend.  I have made it before, but my mom was dying to try it.  So, we made it without hesitation.  It did not turn out exactly like the one I had made at home, but it was delicious.  Since we could not all agree on the specific toppings we wanted to add, we made a topping station where we could specialize our own pizza.  We had mushrooms, jalapenos, turkey meat, ham, basil, goat cheese, sweet peppers, and probably more.  After eating it, we didn't feel completely full because we weren't eating a whole pizza of carbs. This is definitely a dish you should try if you are trying to watch the flour.  You could add anything to the top to make it just the way you like it.  Just follow these simple steps to make the base, and enjoy!

1 cup riced cauliflower (steps to follow)
1 egg
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 cup mozzarella cheese
toppings of your choice
pizza sauce of your choice


1. Chop the cauliflower into pieces.  

2. Add the chopped cauliflower to the food processor.  This will rice the cauliflower.

3. Place 1 cup of the cauliflower in the microwave with 1/4 cup water.  Cook in the microwave for 5 minutes.

4. Add the spices, egg, and cheese to the cauliflower mixture.

5. Mix well.

6. Place on a non-stick cookie sheet and spread it out to look like a real pizza.  You may think that it feels a little strange, but I promise, it will cook the right way.  It cooks better if you make smaller pizzas.

7. Place in a 450 degree F oven for about 15 minutes.  The above picture is what it should look like when it is done.  

8. Add your toppings to the cooked cauliflower crust. The above picture is a few of the toppings that we set out for people to choose from.

9. After you place your toppings on your personalized pizza, place in the oven on Broil for a few minutes until the top is golden brown and bubbling.

Until next time...
