I’ve been on a clean eating streak recently and have been on the hunt for healthier versions of my favorite junk foods. Two thoughts: (1) Thank goodness for the Internet — what an amazing medium; and (2) You’d be surprised at how inventive people can get! I’ll definitely need to create a top 10 “to-try” list very soon.
Here’s one recipe that we did get to try: cauliflower crust pizza. That’s right. The pizza “crust” is actually just a mix of shredded cauliflower, mozzarella, and egg, all mixed up and crisped in the oven. It has all the goodness of pizza without the carb factor. I went a little rogue following the recipe and decided to pre-cook the cauliflower on the stove-top with a few tablespoons of water added. I wouldn’t recommend it — the pie was a little soggier than would be ideal — but the finished product was still incredibly tasty. We topped our ‘za with zucchini, eggplant, and mushrooms, but you can obviously do as you please. Definitely a repeat recipe!
(Please pardon the undeniably less-than-glamorous photo! Obviously, I can’t be bothered to grab my camera and take real pictures — not when there’s a fresh pie in front of me.)
