By far the best thing we made with Callie! You see cauliflower crusts on every healthy website now so we decided it was time to give it a try because we were stuck at home during Sandy. Good news; its easier than you think! Sad news; it took me about 4 months to share it with all of you, oops!

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

4 cups cauliflower rice

1 cup shredded cheese

1 egg

A blend of salt, pepper, oregano, and any spice you want

 

In order to make the cauliflower rice you need a food processor. It’s better if it’s a big one because it would take you two batches but even if it’s a BeFunky_IMG_1860small one don’t be intimidated. After washing your cauliflower cut it in junks so it’s easier to place them in the food processor. Process them until there aren’t any chunks left, it will look like rice; really tiny pieces. Boil a big pan of water and place the cauliflower rice in it, let it get soft; it takes about 5 minutes. Drain into a strainer. Then put it all in a cheese cloth and squeeze until there isn’t any liquid left. That way the crust wont get saggy. Mix the ball of rice that looks like a big dough now with the cheese, egg, and all the spices. Now it will actually be a pizza dough! Press it into the shape you want on a tray with parchment paper on it, about 1/3” thick and bake it at 400 °F for 35 minutes.

BeFunky_IMG_1859Take it out and go crazy. Any pizza topping you want will be amazing I’m telling you! We didn’t have pizza sauce at home so I made it from tomato paste, real tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, oregano, paprika, and water. Also since we had a vegetarian in the house we made it a veggie pizza. It. Turned. Out. Amazing.BeFunky_IMG_1861
