Earlier today I was asked to check a link on one of our Brand Ambassador blogs.  While checking the link I noticed a recipe for Cauliflower Crust Pizza.  Not having time to read the post I quickly glanced at the images and decided I would make it for dinner.

Here is just one of Megan’s amazing images!

So after work I rushed to the market and got my ingredients.  (Don’t forget I never read the post so I guessed on what was in it!)  I got home and went straight to work on my crust.  I grated the cauliflower and some cheese, mixed in some eggs and added some garlic salt and pepper.  Then I pressed my dough into my large skillet and baked it, and baked it some more.   It was taking such a long time to cook I thought I should peek at Megan’s post to see how long I was supposed to cook it for.  This is when I realized that I missed a critical step and was supposed to cook the cauliflower!  All said and done I cooked the crust for 40 minutes. It was not all the way done but I need to get dinner on the table. 

So I pulled it out of the oven and it looked like this…

Then I added some cheese…

a little spinach…

Then a lit bit (or should I say a lot) of sauce, more cheese, all my favorite toppings and some more cheese!

Then I baked it in a 450 degree oven for 20 minutes and this is what I got!

This is one of the best tasting things I have ever eaten and I am a food snob.  It does not however taste a thing like pizza.  It could be that I did not follow the instructions on the crust or that my crust never crisped.  That said I would make it the exact same way over and over again!

How I made it
I grated 1 cauliflower head and a lot of cheese (parmesan reggiano, parmesan and jake)

I mixed 3 parts cauliflower to 1 part cheese, then added 2 eggs and garlic salt & pepper to taste.  I mixed all ingredients together with my hands.

I drizzled (more like dumped) extra virgin olive oil on my skillet and patted the cauliflower mix into it.

I baked the crust in a 450 degree oven for 40 minutes.

Then topped with cheese mix.

I hand rubbed my pizza sauce (1/2 a cup of canned pasta sauce mixed with lots of tomato paste) over the cheese mix and added some spinach.

I added more of my cheese mix, and topped the pizza with my favorite toppings (pepperoni, spinach, fresh tomato’s, and fresh chopped garlic).

I baked it for another 20 minutes in a 450 degree oven.

Can I just say yum, yum!
