Cauliflower Pizza. Another “I can’t believe this is actually good!” recipe.
“Rice” a head of cauliflower in a food processor using either a blade or large cheese grater wheel in your food processor. A regular handheld cheese grater may be used in a pinch. Bag up half of the cauliflower and save for later. Microwave half of the ground cauliflower for 8 minutes, stirring half way through. Do not add extra water, the cauliflower has enough. If it seems wet at all, take a clean dish towel and squeeze any excess moisture out.
Combine 3 cups of cauliflower with 2 cups of low carb soy cheese. I found half mozz. and half cheddar worked best. I use veggie shreds instead of real mozzarella. Both are only 1g carb per serving, but the Veggie Shreds are about 1/3 less calories and half the fat.
Add: 2 egg-beaten
1tsp garlic salt
1tsp crushed garlic
This will make 1 extra large crust, or two medium/large crusts. Mix all ingredients, it looks like a ricotta mixture that you would use for lasagne. Place mixture on greased parchment paper. I just spray it with some olive oil spray. The parchment paper makes it very easy to remove. Spread out the mixture by hand and work it as thin as possible. Pre-bake the crust at 450 for 15-17 minutes. It will start to bubble and brown.
Top with your favorite toppings. This one is half taco, half lean homemade Italian Sausage (I’ll get that recipe up), and mushroom. I used Chunky Tomato sauce with the sausage mushroom (recipe at the end of this article). For the taco side I use Walden Farms Tomato Basil sauce. Lean taco meat, with my no carb taco spice(see recipe on other Facebook doc), and veggies. If you’ve never used Walden Farms, all of their products are zero fat, carb, and fat. I pop the pizza back in the oven for 6-8 minutes. When it comes out I drizzle it with Walden Farms Alfredo sauce. Top each slice of taco with lettuce, IP southwest cheese curls and Walden Farms Chipotle Ranch dressing. Nutrition for medium sized crust is only about 90 calories, 4g fat, 3g carb (depending on your cheese choice), and 9g protein per quarter pizza. Taco Spice Mix-per pound of meat 1 Tbs chili powder 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp dried minced onion 1/2 tsp paprika 1/4 tsp onion powder dash garlic powder 1/2 cup water.
