Trying new recipes, adapting them, and sharing them with you is one of our favorite things to do. Working alongside the kitchen while one of us cooks or bakes is both a blessing and a curse. The smells that float through the studio are just divine. But it can be quite a distraction and a couple of afternoons have been completely lost to tasting chocolate bliss balls or summer cocktail recipes! This week our designer Lindsay tried out a recipe for a cauliflower pizza crust that she adapted from this recipe by Michelle at The Lucky Penny. I have tried countless gluten-free pizzas (often the texture of toasted cardboard). And I can confidently say that this is by far the most flavorful and delicious recipe we have found.
Along with being a delicious gluten-free option, this pizza recipe is also great for those of you looking for low-carb recipes. It’s also a fun way to add some more veggies into your diet!
Crazy for Cauliflower
This cauliflower pizza crust recipe uses a mix of herbs, parmesan, and mozzarella to create a light, tasty base that is perfect for adding your favorite pizza toppings. The trick to achieving the perfect cauliflower pizza crust is to wring out as much of the water from the cauliflower as possible. This is a little time-consuming. But it is super simple to do and is well worth the effort. No one wants a soggy crust!
First, we covered our cauliflower pizza crust with the flavorful tomato-orange sauce from last week’s recipe post. We then added sliced red onions, red pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, and just a little Italian cheese blend. Once the pizza was baked, we topped it with fresh basil and a side of tomatoes. The results were AMAZING!
Of course, you can top this crust with your own favorite combination of meats, cheeses, and veggies. We have done a little research and found out that you can freeze cauliflower pizza dough using the flash freeze method. So we will be making up a large batch to keep in our freezer for those evenings where we need a delicious healthy dinner in minutes. Yum!
I am definitely going to be making another pizza this weekend to share with friends. If you want to print out the recipe for your recipe box (or to share with friends), we have designed a printable recipe card for the cauliflower pizza crust. Enjoy! ~ Lia
