Pizza! Pizza!

7 Feb

Alright folks I have attempted two different pizza recipes this week, all primal, gluten free, and of course DELICIOUS! First one I made a few days ago when Hunter requested pizza for dinner, as I have said before, he has a little trouble with the primal thing, especially in the grocery store, which was where we were during this conversation. 6 year olds just don’t understand that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, which are awesome, just aren’t that good for you. Hell, I have a hard time understanding this myself.

I have been meaning to try this recipe for a pizza crust made with cauliflower for a while so it seemed like the perfect night. It turned out okay. As far as flavor goes, it’s great. However don’t be expecting an imitation for the consistency of a bread dough.

1 head of cauliflower

olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

1 egg

italian seasonings of your choice, I used basil and garlic powder, about 2 teaspoons of each. Oregano would be equally delicious.

Pizza sauce preferably homemade or hopefully one without added sugar or other nasty ingredients. I’ve only managed to find 1 store bought one at Target that fits that bill. Giada de Laurentis Marinara with artichokes. It’s sooooo good too.

Toppings of your choice

Preheat your oven to 450. Cut your cauliflower into pieces and use a food processor or blender to get a grainy texture. I tried to use a cheese grater at first and this was laughable so I put it in the blender a little bit at a time. It’s very moist so kind of a pain. I would definitely recommend using the food processor if you have one but don’t over do it or you will puree it. Once you’re finished with that put it in a bowl and microwave for about 8 minutes. Add your egg and seasonings and mix until combined. Spread a bit of oil onto your cookie sheet or pizza pan and transfer your “dough”. With your hands work it out onto the pan evenly just like you would a crust. Brush with olive oil. Bake this at 450 for about 15 minutes.

Add your sauce, toppings, and cheese. Place under broiler for 3-5 minutes until cheese melts.

We had pineapple and olives.
