Inspired by healthy recipes others have shared in our private Fit Club group on Facebook, I decided to give Cauliflower Pizza a try. Cauliflower is definitely not my first choice of vegetable, so I wasn't sure how this adventure was going to go. I settled on this recipe as it seemed straight-foward enough and steps were easy to follow.
So, let's see how this goes. First, here comes the often neglected food processor. Finally, an excuse to fire it up!
Who knew how much water was hanging out in that cauliflower? The recipe calls for the cauliflower to be drained. Seeing how much there, I'd suggest this is not a step you should skip. My crust once I drained all the water out (there was a lot!).
After some shaping, par baking, then piling with cheese -- Et voila! Looks like an actual pizza.
Time saving tip
The actual process of prepping the cauliflower took a little longer and was messier than I anticipated, that being said, you can definitely make a few crusts at a time and freeze for later use. I think that would definitely help cut down on the time.
I was pretty excited when I pulled this out of the oven and saw the resemblance to a pizza. I'd definitely try it again as I continue to cut out frozen, processed pizza from my family's diet. I think next time I would add more veggies, I tried keeping this one pretty simple since I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing or how it was going to turn out.
Have you tried a cauliflower pizza? What about cauliflower mashed "potatoes"? Those may be next on my list.
