Cauliflower Pizza CrustComments : 3 Posted in : Dinner, Lunch on by : Chris
Make a mental note- this is what riced cauliflower looks like. You’ll want to know once you get to the recipe below.
We eat pizza a lot. Probably once a week. We almost always make it ourselves. I change up my dough recipes depending on my mood, and how lazy I am. I make a sourdough pizza dough from a starter I have in my fridge, which is quite tasty. I’m also a huge fan of Alton Brown’s pizza dough recipe, which I’ve been making for years.
I made whole wheat pizza once. It was okay. I think I’ve been eating my favorite pizza doughs for so long that the change in flavor and texture when switching to whole wheat just didn’t work for me.
That said, you may be surprised to see today’s recipe is a Cauliflower Pizza Crust. Sometimes you have to step outside your comfort zone and try something new. When you do, sometimes you’ll find the results are delicious. 🙂
Today is reveal day for The Secret Recipe Club. This month we were assigned the blog Daily Dish Recipes, written by fellow food blogger Nicole. We were delighted to have an excuse (not that we needed one) to revisit Nicole’s blog- we’d blogged about her fantastic homemade fried pickles in the past. A-may-zing. Nicole has a deep love of comfort food, and her recipes are tested by those most discerning of food critics: teenagers. This recipe was cooked, served to, and gobbled up by those pizza loving teens without letting slip the gigantic secret- that the “dough” of this pizza is cauliflower. Delicious, cheesy cauliflower. There is not a grain of wheat in the recipe. Low to no-carb (if you’re watching carbs), wheat-free, veggie packed, and fantastic. Give it a try- you won’t be dissapointed!
The flavor and texture of a bite of cauliflower pizza is reminiscent to baked eggplant parm. Which is to say, this pizza is delish!
