Cauliflower Pizza Crust

For quite awhile I've been wanting to make Cauliflower pizza crust's, and I finally did! They are a little time consuming, but are SO worth it.
A little over a month ago my hubby started Medifast and has already lost almost 25 lbs., so I decided to join him. I started Tuesday and have already lost 6 lbs., in 2 days! As part of the diet, you get one 'Lean & Green' meal. So I've been searching for meals I can cook that qualify and was happy to see that this pizza does! 
First of all you have to grate a head of cauliflower. This takes the most time.
Then you add the eggbeaters, cheese and spices.

Flatten it out on a cookie sheet. 

Put it in the oven and then put whatever toppings you want on it. On one I added tomato sauce, spinach and feta cheese. The other one I used mozzarella cheese instead of the feta. Next time I'll get more creative with the toppings. :)

 This one head of cauliflower made 4 pizza crusts. I froze the other 2 in a ziploc bag.
These were crazy deelish!! I think I could eat one every day! 

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

Ingredients:
1 cup Grated Raw Cauliflower
1/4 cup Egg Beaters
1/2 cup Reduced Fat Three Cheese Mexican Blend (I used hot pepper blend, I like spicy)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp basil
Salt/pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spray lightly with cooking spray. Combine grated cauliflower, egg beaters, cheese, garlic powder and basil until mixed completely. Spoon mixture on a butter sprayed pan. Use a spatula to thin out mixture and form a circle about the size of a dinner plate. The thinner the crust the less chance of it being soggy. Bake for 25 minutes. Carefully flip the pizza crust over and bake an additional 5-10 minutes until edges are brown and crisp.

This recipe is for 1 crust. Add on any toppings you would like and put back in the oven for a few more minutes to melt the cheese. Freeze remaining crusts in a Ziploc bag. To reheat, bake in a 425 oven for 15 minutes.

Enjoy!

  2. Yummy! Looks pretty easy, especially if you use a food processor to grate all that cauliflower!
