Here's a gluten free pizza that substitutes the bread crust with healthy cauliflower. Topped with vegetables and cheese, this nutrient-packed pizza is high fiber, too.
- 1 lb cauliflower florets
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 oz grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup sliced mushroom
- 1/2 red bell pepper sliced
- 1/2 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1 sliced tomato
- 1/3 cup fresh baby spinach
In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely chopped.
In a microwave-safe bowl, cook cauliflower for 5 minutes, or until tender. Place cauliflower in a towel and squeeze out excess water so it is completely dry.
In a bowl, mix egg, cauliflower, 2 tablespoons of the basil, black pepper, garlic and Parmesan cheese until combined.
On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread cauliflower dough out into a pizza round. Lightly coat cauliflower crust with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and bell pepper and sauté for 5 minutes, or until tender. Set aside.
Remove crust from oven. Increase oven temperature to 450°F.
Top cauliflower crust with mozzarella cheese, sautéed mushrooms and bell pepper, tomato, spinach, remaining 2 tablespoons basil and black pepper to taste. Bake for 7 minutes, or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
