Who's ready for some some yummy pizza with a zero carb crust? Cauliflower crust pizza is so yummy that you'll never miss the carbs.
Because I was on the South Beach diet (until I was completely done-in by a bag of candy corns) and trying to cook gluten-free, I decided it was definitely a good time to try out cauliflower crust pizza!
- ½ LARGE head cauliflower (or 2+ cups shredded cauliflower--I used frozen, and it worked just fine)
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon minced fresh garlic
- ½ teaspoon onion salt
- 2 T Ricotta cheese
- Pizza or Spaghetti Sauce (Remember that if you are going for low carb, sugar in the sauce will add carbs.) (If you are cooking gluten-free, don't forget to check for gluten in the sauce! From what I've found, Hunts original (not the one with meat) canned spaghetti sauce is GF.)
- Cooked or fresh Swiss chard (Yep. I said Swiss chard. I discovered that it tastes just like spinach when put on pizza.)
- Shredded Mozzarella
- Using a cheese grater, shred the cauliflower into rice-size pieces. (You'll need about 2 cups). Microwave the cauliflower "rice" for 8 minutes (don't add any water), and allow it to cool.
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F, and lightly grease 9" to 12" round pizza pan.
- Mix the cauliflower rice with the remaining crust ingredients and pat the crust into the pan--using your fingers to flatten and spread it out.
- Spray the crust lightly with nonstick spray and bake it for 15 minutes (or until the cauliflower looks golden).
- Remove the crust from the oven and add your toppings. Place the pizza under your broiler until the cheese melts and gets bubbly.
- You're done . . . now enjoy it! So yummy!
