That’s Not Pizza!

Ever since reading about cauliflower pizza crust, I’ve wanted to try it.  But certainly, in no way shape or form do I know ANYONE that would be on board with a vegetable crust!  Because, as I heard after I made it – more than once – “That’s NOT pizza!”  Finally yesterday, since I wasn’t up to much else and had all the ingredients, I decided to tackle it.

I did make “real” homemade pizza dough for the BH and the girls, simply to keep the peace.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Adapted from Damn Delicious

1 head cauliflower, chopped and steamed in microwave until soft about 10 minutes

2 large eggs

1 T. whole wheat flour

1/2 c. fat free shredded mozzarella cheese

2 T. grated Parmesan

1 T. Italian Herbs (from the refrigerated section)

salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425*.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.  Put steamed cauliflower into a food processor until finely ground, it should make approximate 2-3 cups. Using a clean dish towel, drain cauliflower completely, removing as much water as you can.  Mix cauliflower with eggs, cheeses, flour and Italian herbs then season with salt & pepper.  Spread the mixture into a 15 x 10″ baking sheet, spray with Pam and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

I baked the crust for approximately 25 minutes until I thought it looked “done”.

It looks exactly like pizza crust!

Then I put on the toppings:

Newman’s Own organic marinara
Spinach
Tomatoes
Mushrooms
Black olives
Onions
Peppers
Canadian bacon
Shredded parmesan
Shredded mozzarella (fat free)
cojito cheese
goat cheese crumbles
Italian spices

I baked it for another 15-20 minutes, cut it into 18 squares and dug in!

I really enjoyed this, it had a great flavor – I even ate it for lunch today, albeit with a knife and fork.

My only complaint, it was super soggy after it sat a while.  (Say that 5 times fast!)  The BH tasted it and said “eh, it’s ok.”  The youngest tried just the crust and said she liked it (she thought it was bread and I didn’t bother to tell her any different)  I would make this again, and maybe change the toppings see if it helps the sogginess some.

Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday!
