Joining the Cauliflower Pizza Train

Thursday, February 21, 2013

We are on a cleanse this week and pretty much all we eat is lean protein, complex carbohydrates, fruits and veggies.. We're trying to get back into the habit of eating well again.  It seems like every winter we get into this slump.  I wanted more energy without requiring coffee all the time and without craving all these unhealthy snacks.  So we are on day 3 and feel fantastic.

Today I was going to make salmon with homemade veggie soup over quinoa (will probably have that tomorrow), but I came across this pizza again and I just had to have it.  To quench my "carb" craving ;)

Bonus: I had almost every ingredient on hand!

Here is my version of the recipe:

3c grated cauliflower microwaved for 5 mins and then set out to cool (let it cool or you will burn your hands.)
1/4c - 1/2c we used 1/4c
1tsp oregano
2 eggs beaten

Oven @ 425 degrees            

Once the cauliflower cools put it in a towel and squeeze out extra moisture (important to get a crisp crust)
Put in clean bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients

on a baking sheet lined with olive oil greased parchment paper spread out the "dough" to a thin consistency and cook for 20-25 minutes.

Add ingredients.... put on broil until cheese melts...

kids had pepperoni and cheese blend
we had spinach, roasted red peppers, pine nuts, capers, more oregano a little dash of feta and parmesan

YUMMY!!! The kids went to town on it never suspecting they were eating cauliflower!

Oh and the crust smells amazing while baking!

Here is a photo of the pizza in the oven.  Not great quality but the pizza is gone (proof that its delicious) so I couldn't take another.  You get the point! Enjoy!
