David and I are absolutely loving cooking in our new kitchen - not a bad view to look at while doing the dishes!
Tonight I decided to try making the elusive cauliflower crust pizza. I have seen so many recipes and posts about this, so I decided to give it a try myself. And to my great joy (and slight surprise), it turned out wonderful!
For the crust, clean and cut the cauliflower into chunks, then blend in your Cuisinart. Once all blended, put in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 4-5 minutes. Take out (and make sure to let it cool for a while), place grated cauliflower in a towel and squeeze as much of the water out as you can! Keep squeezing! Then combine with one cup of the grated parmesan, 2 eggs, and the seasonings and mix together.
Press down onto a cooking sheet or in a round pan - make sure to spray with non-stick cooking spray to prevent any sticking. Cook in the oven at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes. One of the keys to this pizza is to be patient - let 'er cook!
While the crust is getting nice and brown around the edges, I browned some Italian mild sausage (removed from the casing) along with 5-6 whole garlic cloves. David loves garlic on his pizza, so it is a good way to soften the garlic before it cooks in the oven. Even easier to keep whole, for those who don't care for that much garlic, they can easily pick it off (while maintaining the great flavor it provides).
Assemble your pizza! Add the tomato/pizza sauce directly onto the crust (I would recommend being generous with the amount of sauce), layer on the slices of mozzarella and provolone, then add on the pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, Italian sausage and garlic cloves. I of course topped it with a bit of extra cheese. :) Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is nice and melted and begins to brown on the top. Sprinkle with fresh basil.
Let cool for a couple minutes to have the pizza set, cut into slices and enjoy with a classic pizza house salad - large cut tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers, lettuce, and ranch dressing. Cheers to low carb pizza that tastes great!!
