So this was surprisingly delicious. OK, so just because I am in love with cauliflower does not make me biased. This actually tastes like I was eating a real dough-based pizza. I had a friend come in who tasted it and did not know it was made from vegetables and said “Wow, this is good pizza!” I totally shocked her by revealing the secret. It was great! If you want to trick your little ones or even a picky friend, make this and do not tell them until they are half-way done gobbling it down. Then, they will beg you to make it again.
Calories per Serving: 307
- 1 cup Cooked Riced Cauliflower (check out another one of my blog pages for an explanation for this one)
- 1 Egg
- 2 1/2 cups Monterrey Jack Cheese (or use one of your favorite cheeses for pizza)
- 1/4 teaspoon Rosemary
- 1 teaspoon Oregano
- 2 teaspoon Parsley
- 1 can of Diced Tomatoes, (14 oz) (my can had garlic and onions in it as well)
- Optional: Toppings (make sure meats are cooked)
Step one: Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step two: Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
Step three: In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and 1 cup of cheese.
Step four: Press the mixture evenly on a pizza pan or cookie sheet.
Step five: Sprinkle evenly with seasonings (oregano, parsley and rosemary).
Step six: Bake for 12-15 minutes. (Next time I would be more careful and form it more evenly into a circle)
Step seven: Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add the sauce, cheese and toppings. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted.
P.S. Here is a picture my future sister-in-law sent me from NC. It looks darn right yummy!
