Cauliflower pizza

I took a slight hiatus during which time school completely exploded. The year’s over in two days, though, so here’s to a summer of travel and trying to get into college and cooking.

For right now, though? CAULI-FREAKING-FLOWER PIZZA.

This pizza is my new religion. I swear, if I had cauliflower on hand all the time, I’d make this once a day.

I used this recipe from Umami Holiday. Basically, if you’ve got cauliflower, cheese, and an egg, you’ve got creative license to do whatever the hell you want to your pizza – my kind of food.

You’re going to start by grinding your cauliflower in a food processor, ideally.

This is the consistency you're aiming for

I wasn’t sure how fine to go, so I processed the crap out of that cauliflower. The consistency worked out for me, though, so I’d aim for something like this.

After you cook your cauliflower comes the fun part – dehydrating it. What you’ll want to do is take a dish towel, clump the cauliflower in it, and squeeze it for far longer than you’d like to. I ended up going for about 8 minutes, by which point there was still a little water coming out but nowhere near the initial stream.

Once you’ve added your egg, spices, and cheese (I used half peccorino romano [sheep cheese] and half shredded taco blend), form your dough into a circle.

I did this just to show how big it’ll end up. Depending on your toppings, you’ll probably want about half a pizza per person, just because the crust is so thin.

We put on tomato sauce, spinach, chicken, and just a little bit more cheese.

I’d advise you not to add in any extra salt, just because the cheese brings a lot to begin with.

Parents tested, parents approved (ie we almost fought over the last piece). 10/10 would make again.

Until next time, keep your boots in the stars and your heart in the trees.

    I have made mashed cauliflower and cauliflower cous cous, both of which my family loved. I’ve heard cauliflower pizza crust is good. Will have to give it a try! Goes with my goal of healthier eating and sneaking those veggies in!
