Cauliflower Crust Pizza


cauliflower pizza for breast cancer preventionBy: Rochelle Donnino & Breast Cancer Yoga Staff

Include cauliflower as one of the cruciferous vegetables you eat on a regular basis if you want to prevent breast cancer and receive the fantastic health benefits provided by the cruciferous vegetable family. We recommend including cruciferous vegetables as part of your diet 2-3 times per week, and make the serving size at least 1-1/2 cups.

Feel free to add any topping you love. Use some colorful vegetables to ramp up the nutrient levels.

Serves 2

Ingredients:
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1 cup shredded Daiya mozzarella cheese
1 1/4 cup blended silken tofu = 1 egg
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp garlic salt
olive oil (optional)
pizza sauce, shredded vegan cheese and your choice of toppings*

Directions:

  1. Take 1 large head of fresh organic cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks.
  2. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (If you don’t have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater).
  3. Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes (some microwaves are more powerful than others, so you may need to reduce this cooking time). There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself.
  4. One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

How To Make Cauliflower Crust To Make the Pizza Crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

  3. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9″ round. Optional: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven.
  6. To the crust, add sauce, toppings and vegan cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until vegan cheese is melted (approximately 3-4 minutes).
