I topped my pizza with fire roasted red peppers, roasted broccoli and bell peppers on one half and crawfish tails sauted with onions and bell pepper and the fire roasted red peppers on the other half, (Yes I am a Cajun from Louisiana!) I'm on a low carb diet and this was the best!
seriously 3 cups of shredded mozz is 960 calories. how is this recipe healthy.
I made this and it was very good. My only suggestion is when the directions say "Microwave the cauliflower for 8 minutes" don't do that. It set my microwave on fire. After that failed attempt, I microwaved a new batch of cauliflower for 2 minutes and followed the steps from there. It turned out great!
Just nasty, and a total waste of lots of prep time.
Does anyone have a calorie count for this recipe?
Nobody said it's low fat, just low carb/gluten.
I was wondering the same thing about the no mirowave. We just don't have one, period. It died several years ago and all I did was defrost meat. Now, I just try to plan ahead and we never replaced the microwave. Don't miss it.
Maybe steaming until crisp tender, but not limp, then ricing would work ok.
Very tasty! I agree with others that it seems like a waste of cauliflower to only use one cup, so I will either make another tomorrow or find other uses for it. The crust didn't hold up as well as a regular bread crust, but the hubby and kids agreed that we like the flavor and texture. Will definitely make again.
Below is a pic of my first pizza. :)
You can't hold it like crust. I used a fork to eat it.
if you are going to cook it on the stove--you have to squeeze the water out of the cauliflower with a cheese cloth.
(see comment on "Question" trail about cooking the cauliflower.) The cheese's role is most likely to moisten and hold it together, but by boiling (I assume that's what you mean by cooking on the stove), you added excess water, which is most likely why it turned out mushy.
This recipe works great - make sure you're using more than 1 cup of grated cauliflower if you want the pizza to be thick enough to hold up to other heavier toppings. Just follow the instructions and don't make silly substitutions then complain about the recipe.
I just made this and it's a really good idea that can be improved upon with more experimentation. I'd like to lower the cheese by removing it from being part of the crust replacing it with non-gluten rice flour.in order to make it more consistent with bread. That would make the crust firmer. Otherwise I think this is a great idea and I enjoyed it.
I thought the ratio of cheese in the cauliflower was really high, so I put in less. I cooked the cauliflower on the stove and then mashed it. So I didn't really follow the recipe. The result was a moist crust that could not be picked up. It tasted all right, but it was certainly not better than a homemade pizza crust. Maybe all that cheese is the secret.
So? Saturated fat shouldn't be avoided. Are you still living in 1993?
Looks good but where is the nutritional information
i made this today. I think it is fantastic. If you are eating a low carb...no carb diet..and miss having a slice of pie.. you will love it. I used low fat cheeses, and it still tastes fantastic. It holds up and slices just ike a pizza. I have not had pizza in months, and sm thoroughly enjoying this. thanks for sharing!
I'm sorry, but why are you rating this one star when you're just asking a question? That's not helpful. At all. It brings down the rating of the recipe, and you haven't even tried it!
Fat is good for you, how are people not getting that
If you are looking for a low fat version, search on the Internet. The cheeses and oils kill it (fast content wise). I made a vegan version work while what flour and nutritional yeast. Yummy. Make sure you use parchment paper or it will stick even with non stick spray
I cooked mine on stove too till the cauliflower was soft about 10min;)
However normally cook it?
I don't know what you use but I added it all up and that's 61 gm of fat for the whole thing and divided by 4 that's still 15 gm of fat
Good Question...I avoid microwaves ALWAYS!!!!
What do I do if I don't have a microwave. Do I heat the cauliflower on the stove?
