This crust was so easy to make. I bought a head of cauliflower from the grocery store with the intentions of trying this. I've never really been a fan of cauliflower but it's full of fiber and vitamin C. It imitates bread and mashed potatoes rather nicely and it makes it an excellent 'diet' food because it is low in carbs.
I made it for lunch for Chloe and I and it was a bit too much work for a lunch, but it would make a perfect accompaniment to a big leafy, green dinner salad. It took me about 30-45 minutes to get lunch prepared. I prefer lunches to take about 10-15 minutes.
I've also skipped the pizza sauce and cheese to make bread sticks with this recipe. Mark really enjoyed those. To make bread sticks, you follow all the directions for the recipe with the exception of the shape you make the crust. I divided the mixture into four even portions and shaped them like long oval breadsticks.
- If you don't have a food processor, you can use a cheese grader to slough off the top of the cauliflower into a bowl.
- Add more garlic. I love garlic. You can never have enough in my unprofessional opinion.
- Make sure to take precautions to keep this from sticking. I have a non-stick Silpat, which I love, but the crust still stuck to the mat.
- Don't put too much cheese on the pizza. The point is a lower calorie pizza and cheese is not calorie friendly.
- Remember this serves two so you'll need to more than one head of cauliflower if you have more than two and half to feed. :)
My pin was from Stick a Fork in It. I traced the recipe back to Eat Drink Smile who adapted it from Your Lighter Side. Whew, trying to give credit where credit is due is difficult when Pinterest is involved.
