Cauliflower Pizza

Cauliflower Pizza

This recipe was on Dr. Oz this morning on his show called “Skinny Secrets.” There was a woman that had lost 120 lbs. and because pizza was her weakness, this was the recipe she came up with for a healthy-style version.

With the grated cauliflower, cheese and egg being baked for the crust, it has 1 gram of fat and about 1/2 the calories of regular pizza.

I made this tonight and it was wonderful! Very flavorful, filling and fast!

(We quadrupled the recipe to make a large rectangular pan that serves 4. In the show she made a personal style pizza for one.) Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

4 cups of cauliflower, grated

2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese, divided  (1 cup in crust, 1 cup on top)

2 eggs

1 tsp. oregano

2 tsp. basil

2 tsp. parsley

1/2 tsp. fennel

1 green pepper

1 onion (I used onion powder)

1 tomato

Garlic, to taste

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions: 

Heat oven to 450 degrees

Chop your pepper, onion and tomato and set aside

Steam the cauliflower, let it cool and the grate it in a food processor

Combine grated cauliflower with the mozzarella, eggs and mix in a large bowl

Spray a large rectangular pan with cooking spray

Spread the cauliflower, egg and cheese mixture out as the crust. Sprinkle with fennel, oregano, basil, parsley and garlic powder

Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Edges will get golden brown

Remove crust from oven and sprinkle with your cut up green pepper, tomato and onion (or powder if you omit the onion) and the remaining mozzarella on top

Return the pizza to the oven. Turn the oven to broil and leave in until the cheese has melted and the crisp is crusty.

Serves 4
