recipe: cauliflower crust pizza


you lovely instagram friends have asked for it, so here it is. 
a very simple recipe for cauliflower crust pizza. yum! 


for the crust:

one whole head of cauliflower
2 - 2.5 cups of mozzarella cheese, grated (or whatever cheese you prefer)
3 eggs
dried basil
optional: garlic

prepare two cookie/baking sheets by overing them with parchment paper and lightly spraying with cooking spray.

grate the entire head of cauliflower into a large bowl. you could also use a food processor for this.
grate the cheese into the bowl as well, add the eggs and sprinkle in as much basil as you like.
stir everything together well with a wooden spoon.

now divide your "dough" evenly between the two baking sheets and use a pancake turner or something similar to pat it down flat.

bake at 450 degrees for about 10-13 minutes.

now prepare your toppings

I like to just add some marinara sauce, mushrooms, zucchini, onions, spinach and cottage cheese (instead of ricotta). Just depends on what I have on hand. Mix some more basil into the cottage cheese too to make it more flavorful.

when the crust is done, add your toppings and place back into the oven for another 5-8 minutes. Just keep an eye on it so it doesn't get burned.

that's it! super easy and a great way to get some vegetables in your kiddos ;)

  8. This looks delicious! I'd love to try this when Mr. M is home. Are you able to pick up the pieces like "regular" pizza? Or is it best eaten with a fork?
