Happy February! Isn’t is crazy how far into winter it is already? One thing I’ve been doing this winter is experimenting with remaking my favorite recipes to incorporate more vegetables, because during the season where everyone gets sick that’s always a great idea. Cauliflower has become a big trend in the last year, because it is incredibly versatile and has little flavor to it. It is perfect as a substitute for rice, pizza crust, or thickening smoothies.
This cauliflower crust has been tested by my family and I can safely say that while it is a bit more crispy that normal pizza crust, it is absolutely delicious!
So, without further ado, please enjoy this great alternative to a normal pizza crust and let me know what you think!
- 1 1/2 bags frozen cauliflower rice (preferably organic)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mozzarella
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce
- any other vegetables or toppings of your choice
First, cook the cauliflower rice according to the package and let it cool. In a food processor, blend the rice until fine. Squeeze the rice in a towel to get all of the excess moisture out of it, and then mix the cauliflower with the eggs, half of the mozzarella, and the salt. On a pan lined with parchment paper, spread the dough out into 2 or 3 pizzas and top with olive oil. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees, and top with sauce, the rest of the cheese, and any other toppings of your choice. Bake again for 5-10 minutes, or until golden and crispy, and enjoy!
