Hey guys! First, thank you so much for your words on Monday. I'll make it through but I'm overwhelmed and it's nice to know that I have so many supportive people in my life.
One thing keeping me strong is my dedication to work out and cook this week! I have a few new recipes and workouts to make graphics for and put together. This one I just couldn't wait to do!
Have you made a cauliflower crust before? I must say I was extremely skeptical when I first saw this concept about a year ago, but it really is delicious! I am not a huge pizza fan. It's way too thick and heavy for my taste. I tend to stick to lighter fare, such as salads and lean grilled meats. Pizza makes me feel terrible. However, I'm certainly not opposed to the delicious taste of herbs, cheese and tomato. Therefore, the cauliflower crust is a good middle ground I think!
It won't taste like gooey pizza dough, but cauliflower makes for a great crust all the same. If you spread it thin enough it will be like a thin crust pizza. I will say with this recipe that I doubled, I left the crust a little thick in the middle and it didn't quite get cooked through. I'm fine with that and it still held up like a normal pizza slice! Just wanted to give you a fair warning though: make sure you spread the whole crust to an even thinness! There are many, many cauliflower crust recipes but I stick to this simple one below the pictures.
Cauliflower Crust Margherita Pizza
I really think it turned out fantastic! Plus, there are a million different topping combos you could go with. I personally am a HUGE fan of a simple margherita pizza and was so excited to pick up the basil plant from Trader Joe's and grow the leaves in my house (sort of) :).
Here are some general shennanigans around our house this week!
Would you ever try a cauliflower crust? What is your favorite kind of pizza?
