Cauliflower Crust, Garlic Chicken Spinach Pizza

Hey guys! I just sat down from finishing dinner. I had been wanting to try to make a cauliflower crust pizza but just hadn't gotten around to it. I had plenty of time so I gave it a go! I had about 2/3 of a cauliflower head. Here is the recipe for the crust of the pizza:

Oven preheated to 400 degrees
  • 3 cups of washed cauliflower, riced*
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • dash of salt
  • sprinkle of black pepper and oregano
Mix the ingredients well. Take the mixture and two pieces of parchment paper. Using the parchment paper, pour out the mixture in between the sheets and press it gently into a round, oval, flat, whatever shape you want. Using a baking sheet or pizza pan to stabilize the crust, move it to the oven. Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Remove the "crust" and the top layer of parchment paper. Take this time to put on your lovely ingredients! This is how I made mine and it was like heaven:

  •  Baked chicken breast (already prepped)
  • Spinach
  • 1 clove garlic chopped up into larger pieces
  • 2% mozzarella cheese (about 2 tablespoons, very light)
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • Organic traditional tomato sauce (1/2 cup)

After you top the pizza with your ingredients, put it back in the oven for another 15-20. The crust will not be crisp, at least mine wasn't. However, that did not stop it from being absolutely lovely. I am going to try some other things eventually to try and crisp it up, but for now this is a great low-carb day meal!

* Put cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower reaches an almost "rice" looking texture.
