Cauliflower Pizza – Gluten Free – Medifast Recipe

I have been seeing Cauliflower Pizza all over Pinterest. I am not a fan of cauliflower. In fact, I do not like cauliflower. Broccoli I can do, but cauliflower, I’ll pass. Needless to say my girls have never tried it and my husband doesn’t didn’t care for it before I stumbled upon this delicious recipe for Cauliflower Breadsticks: Sandy’s Kitchen

A week before Easter I tried the recipe out and the entire tray of breadsticks that I made, were gobbled up within minutes. My family could not believe they were made with cauliflower, moreover, they didn’t care! Yes, I know, unheard of!!

So I thought today that I would try my hand at making the cauliflower pizza this time around. First off, Lil’ C was singing, “Cauliflower pizza, yum, yum, yum,” if that gives you a hint as to whether or not my almost 6 year old and 3 year old like this pizza/breadstick recipe.

I found a few different recipes, but really should have just stuck to the original breadstick one and adjusted a little. The recipe I tried mentioned heating up the chopped cauliflower in the microwave and soaking out the juices, I found that the raw cauliflower I put into our breadsticks worked just fine and may have even been a little less mushy.

By popular demand and the fact that I am behind held at gunpoint {not really}, I am posting this recipe.

Please don’t lick the screen:

Here are the Ingredients I used to make an entire pizza for my family:

1 medium head of cauliflower {grated makes about 3-4 cups}
1 egg white
2 cups shredded Reduced Fat 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese {1 cup for mix 1 cup for topping}
Turkey Pepperoni {use as desired or count out for caloric intake}
Marinara Sauce
The following herbs and seasonings to taste – garlic powder, pinch of salt {depending on your diet plan}, freeze dried basil, pepper.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450.

Chop cauliflower until it resembles a rice-like texture.

Mix RAW chopped cauliflower, 1 egg white, 1 cup of cheese, herbs and seasonings together in a bowl until combined.

Line a cookie sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper preferably.

Spread mixture onto parchment paper, trying to make an even layer of “dough”. My personal preference is as thin as possible so as not to get a mushy texture, and trying to get my edges even as much as possible.

Bake at 450 for 10 minutes and flip the “dough”, baking for another 5 minutes or so to brown both sides of your pizza crust. {VERY IMPORTANT STEP, and will save you from mushy pizza.}

Remove crust from the oven, add the marinara sauce, and any toppings, including the last cup of cheese, we used Turkey pepperoni, and place back in the oven for another 7-10 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly. *Don’t worry about the edges browning, this is typical of cauliflower pizza and tastes great regardless.

Let the pizza set for 2 minutes and then enjoy! Voila!!!
