Pint Sized Cauliflower Pizza Crusts

 

Pizza is one food I can eat probably forever. I personally change it up so much that it never gets boring to me. The fact that it can be so carby/greasy/fatty is one of the best and worst parts about it. What can I say I am a New Yorker who loves her pizza and I rest my case! Luckily for me I share an equally impressive love of veggies so when smushing both ideas together to make me a less squishy version of myself when enjoying many a delish pizza I say let’s go for it! I am actually really excited to try this. Cauliflower is super delish! I have made “mashed taters” out of them and a few other potato substitute recipes. A pizza crust is almost like a new frontier.  I found this recipe on one of my favorite food sites Tablespoon.com

 

Ingredients:

1 large head organic cauliflower (about 4 cups shredded)
2 large eggs
3 cups shredded fresh mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried organic oregano
1 teaspoon dried organic basil
2 teaspoons organic garlic powder
1 cup pizza sauce
12 fresh organic basil leaves
1 organic tomato, sliced into 12 rounds
1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions:

1 Using a grater or a food processor to shred cauliflower into crumbles. Reserve 4 cups of the crumbles and store the remainder, if any, in the fridge or freezer for future pizzas.
2 Cook cauliflower in microwave for 8 minutes then allow to cool 10 minutes.
3 Add eggs, 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, oregano, basil and garlic powder and stir to combine.
4 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
5 Lightly grease 2 baking sheets (or pizza pans); divide mixture into 12 balls. Place balls on sheets and pat each into a thin round about 4 inches wide. Bake in oven 15 minutes until golden brown (the edges might be charred; this is OK).
6 Remove sheets from oven and heat broiler. Top each mini crust with pizza sauce, basil leaves, remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses and tomato slices.
7 Broil pizzas until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let cool.

**You can add any veggies or cheese you like to these pizzas. Don’t be afraid to experiment! I bet they would be good for breakfast instead of toast or potatoes also!!
