Cauliflower Crust Pizza!

Last night the hubs and I took the opportunity to explore a new recipe that my sweet friend Laura K recommended after she knew how much I loved cauliflower.  Thanks for the recipe, Lauren.  This is now a staple in our household!

You can find the recipe here – Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Step One: Rice a head of cauliflower in a food processor. Mix in 1/4 cup of water. Then cook in the microwave for 6-8 minutes.  *Disclaimer – make sure not to use too much water.  You may think it’s too dry, but don’t overwater it otherwise your crust will turn out mushy!

Step Two: Then mix in a medium size bowl with mozzarella and 1 egg.  After you mix well, form a 9″ circle on a greased pizza pan.  Bake the crust in the oven at 450* for 15 minutes or until the center is well cooked!

Step 3: Now it’s time for toppings!  I picked some fresh basil from our new basil plant in the backyard.  I love having basil under all the other toppings.  It adds wonderful flavor to the sauce and just tastes delish!

Don’t forget about the cheese.  The hubs favorite trick: add cheese, then toppings and then MORE cheese.  This helps everything stay in place while you are eating.  Great tip!  My favorite toppings of the night: pepperoni, bell peppers, basil and cheese!

Step 4: Now it’s time to pop this bad boy in the oven.  Turn on the broiler and cook it on high for 3-4 minutes.  NOTE: when broiling…make sure to keep a close eye on your pizza so you don’t burn the top!

Finally, the time came after much preparation.  Bon appétit!

If you try it let me know what you think.  I paired it with a delicious salade of wild greens, dried cranberries, pepitas, croutons, tomatoes, extra bell peppers, mushroom and topped with an Asian sesame dressing.

Well, tonight is a night of celebration.  I’m getting together with my old graduate class cohort for Indian food.  We figured it’s an essential since we all lived in India together for 6 weeks!

Thanks for reading!
