What did I do? I made a cauliflower crust pizza!
1 cup steamed cauliflower
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, parsley & basil
pizza toppings: Mushrooms, onions, peppers, pepperoni, spinach
pizza sauce: I make mine using 1 cup dehydrated tomato powder to 3 cups of water, 1/2 tsp sugar, pizza herbs and simmer gently. Tomato Powder: Excalibur Obsessed
Preheat the oven to 450.
Cut up a head of cauliflower florets and steam it. Next, chop the cooked cauliflower or process it in a food processor.
Take 1 cup of the cauliflower and add 1 cup of mozzarella, 1 egg and herbs such as oregano, basil, parsley. I end up making a double batch (around a full head of cauliflower) for our family. Next, season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Mix and spread out on a pizza stone (I use cast iron pans) covered with parchment paper. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Prepare toppings while crust is in the oven.
Remove from oven (it should look like a crust) and place next to the
Here is the fun part – have the kids add the sauce and toppings.
