CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST...HEALTHY EATING...
My youngest has great eating habits. I really should take after her! But those darn Dunkin Donut Iced Caramel Latte with whip cream get me all the time. I just can't drive past a DD without stopping. She came across this recipe on YouTube link HERE...
IT WAS SO GOOD! I can't wait till she makes it again.
CAULIFLOWER CRUST PIZZA RECIPE
~1/3 head cauliflower (enough for 2 cups cauliflower rice-- one medium head will usually yield about 6 cups of rice)
1/2 cup parmesan
1/4 cup mozzarella
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pep
1 tsp garlic
In a processor, blend up cauliflower florets. Steam cauliflower by placing in microwave in a bowl (you don't need to add water or cover) and heat 7-8 minutes, stirring once. Allow to cool.
Preheat oven to 400F.
Place 2 cups of cauliflower rice in the center of a piece of cheesecloth or old dish towel (I used a dish towel, but make sure you use one you don't care about as it will likely stretch out). Create a ball with the rice inside of the cloth and ring out the water. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP--IT WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOUR CRUST! You need to remove as much moisture as possible- continue to ring until water stops coming out of cloth.
Transfer to a bowl and mix will all other ingredients.
Spread out dough on a pizza pan, lined with parchment paper and sprayed.
Bake 9-12 minutes, until firm and cooked through. Remove from oven and add desired toppings ((I used homemade pasta sauce, mozzarella, basil, zucchini, sautéed onions/garlic and turkey pepperoni!). Return to oven for another 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted.
Slice and devour!
