Rockin' Recipe: Cauliflower-crust pizza


So what does a vegetarian eat when he tries to pack in over 160g of protein a day without going over 100g carbs? Stuff like this! Actually, it's pretty freakin' delicious. Thanks to George over at the CF nationals for posting it on his recipe blog.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups cauliflower, steamed and grated in Cuisinart
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 2 eggs
  • few tsp spices (oregano, basil, parsley, fennel...whatever you like)

  • 1/2c marinara
  • 2 veggie sausages (Tofurkey or Field Roast)
  • the rest of the mozzarella
  • some parmesan
Preparation

Preheat oven to 450 degrees farenheit.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Press evenly on the pan. Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese. Be sure your toppings are already cooked.

Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted. Serves 4.
