So last night I tried something new! Cauliflower pizza!!
I have to say, it shows promise.
I tried this recipe that I found on Pinterest.
It turned out pretty well but there are a few things I will be doing differently next time. But before I get ahead of myself, let's start and step one.
First, I had to 'rice' a cup of cauliflower, which means to grate it (or chop it) very finely and cook it in the microwave till it is extremely soft.
I realized after I cooked my cup of cauliflower, that I was supposed to measure a cup of cooked cauliflower. My cup cooked down to less than half a cup, so I started grating once again!!
Of course, there were the inevitable sacrifices.
I don't think I ever use my grater without scraping myself up a bit in the process.
Then I mixed my cup of cooked, riced cauliflower with one cup of cheese and one egg. It didn't look very appealing, but I soldiered on! I held out hope!!
Then I pressed it out onto an oiled pan.
Then I placed in a preheated oven and baked at 450* for ten minutes. The recipe said to bake for fifteen but I was glad I checked after ten cause it was already getting quite burned. Next time my plan is to try 375*.
Then I topped with sauce, Italian sausage, peppers, and mozzarella cheese. Then I placed it back in the oven on broil until everything was good and melted.
It got a little more burned under the broiler. But it was only on the outer edges, not the bottom.
But it did stick to the pan a lot more than I expected it to. I used olive oil so I really didn't see that one coming. But maybe it was due to the high heat. I will definitely be trying again at a lower heat.
The taste was fantastic!! I couldn't taste cauliflower at all! I love cauliflower but even I thought cauliflower on pizza would be way weird!! But it was really good. It didn't taste like pizza crust but it was still really tasty! I finished the whole thing by myself.
Ever tried cauliflower crust pizza?? What is something new you have tried lately??
