Cauliflower Crust Pizza

One of the biggest problems with going on a low carb diet is that you can’t eat pizza. I’m not that big of a pizza eater, but I don’t like to think that I can’t have something, so when I saw a recipe for cauliflower crust, I figure I had to try it!  When I tried the South Beach diet a few years ago, I would make the cauliflower mashed potatoes and it was awesome!  It was one of my favorite things on the diet.  Well, I’m excited to say that I have a new fun way to eat cauliflower now!!! 

Ingredients:

Cauliflower Crust:
2 Eggs
2 Cups of Mozzarella Cheese
2 Cups of Shredded Cauliflower
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1/4 Cup Julienned Basil
Pinch of Salt an Pepper

Toppings:
Pizza sauce
Mozzarella Cheese
Sliced Tomatoes
Sliced Onions
Sliced Mushrooms
Basil Ricotta

Basil Ricotta:
1 Cup Ricotta
1 Tbsp Chopped Basil
Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Mix the cauliflower crust ingredients in a bowl.


Spread the cauliflower crust ingredients on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and sprayed with Pam. Bake the crust at 450 for 15 minutes. While you are waiting, prepare the toppings.

Mixe the basil ricotta


Slice the toppings.


Take the cauliflower crust out of the oven.



Put the toppings on the crust.  Pizza sauce, then cheese, then tomatoes, then onions, then mushrooms, then basil ricotta.


Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.


Slice off a piece of pizza.


Eat it up. It’s a great substitution for real pizza.  I would suggest adding more salt and pepper for taste and I think that some other toppings might spice it up a little bit!
