Recipe: Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Oh hey folks, remember me? I know, I know, I've neglect this corner of the internet world a lot lately. But today I am popping in to share with you my latest obession:

Cauliflower Pizza Crust! 

I use this recipe here via Lauren Conrad's website. I do however tweak it a bit.

I up the cauliflower to just shy of half a head.  I cut down the cheese to 1/2 - 2/3 a cup.  

I make it as thin a crust as possible. 

I only cook it for 10 minutes, and put under the broiler for 2 maybe 3 minutes.  

After the 10 minutes of cooking and before I add my toppings i used a thin metal spatula to "unstick" the crust. 

I like to top it with sauteed Kale and mushroom, and thin slices of uncooked heirloom tomatoes {they get warm from the few minutes under the broiler}. 

The final steps, use a pizza cutter to remove any of the burnt edges, add tons of chopped basil and enjoy!

Someone asked me if you can taste the cauliflower, I say no.  I think cooking it, adding cheese, garlic and oregano make the cauliflower taste disappear. But please don't be fooled this won't make you feel like you are eating a deep dish slice of dominos pizza, but it will remind you of pizza, satisfy your craving and not wreak havoc on your diet. 

Because I use more cauliflower and less cheese I do not consider this to serve 2, I eat the whole thing myself! It is under 400 calories for the entire pizza and that is well within my eating plan!

We make vegan pizza every week. we usually have whole wheat crust. this seems like a nice way to make it a little healthier and lower in calories. I might try this. thanks!
