INGREDIENTS LIST

FOR CAULIFLOWER PIZZA (makes 1 individual pizza)

  • 1 package of Trader Joes Riced Cauiflower
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup of goat cheese or Daiya Mozzarella Shreds
  • 1 piece of parchment paper

FOR SAUCE (made in the Nutribullet)

  • 3 medium Roma Tomatoes chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup carrot chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1 small garlic clove peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of water

DIRECTIONS

FOR TOMATO SAUCE: (COOKING TIME 35-40 MINUTES)

Place all ingredients into a Nutribullet or blender and blend for about 20 seconds. Pour into a saucepan. Simmer for 35-40 minutes. Pour over cauliflower pizza. Feel free to save some in a mason jar too for other meals throughout the week

FOR CAULIFLOWER PIZZA: (COOKING TIME 45 MINUTES) 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Fill a large pot with enough water to cover the package of cauliflower rice. Bring to a boil. Dump the cauliflower rice into the pot and cover. Let cook for 4-5 minutes. Drain into a strainer

Dump the cauliflower rice onto a clean dish towel. Let it sit and cool off for a few minutes. Then twist the towel up and squeeze any excess moisture out

In a large bowl mix the strained rice, beaten egg, cheese, and spices. I personally used a whisk then squeezed and mixed it all together using my hands

Press the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Try and make sure the dough is about 1/3" thick.

BAKE for 35-40 minutes at 400 degrees

REMOVE from oven after the 35-40 minutes are complete and add your sauce and all your favorite toppings

Return pizza to the oven for 5-10 minutes at 400 degrees or until the cheese is melted and bubbly! Take out and slice and enjoy

TIP: Double the recipe and after adding toppings to the finished crust WRAP in aluminum foil AND FREEZE one pizza to enjoy later in the oven on a different night
