Happy Friday everyone! We wanted to post a scrumptious recipe we found from L.Michelle – we all know that most every person out there LOVES pizza, but not everyone is able to have it. This recipe takes cauliflower, and turns it into a crust that not only tastes amazing, but is healthy for you and easy to digest!
Cauliflower Crust Bacon Pizza
MAKES: 3-4 MINI PIES
1 Container of 365 Organic Tomato Basil Sauce
1 Head of Organic Cauliflower
2 Egg Whites
1 Medium to Large Organic Onion
2/3 Cup Organic Spinach
1 Cup Coconut Flour (Tropical Traditions)
1/2 Cup Bacon Bits (We used sugar free Turkey Bacon)
Garlic Powder to Taste
Italian Seasoning to Taste
Crushed Black Pepper to Taste
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Rinse and prepare cauliflower into a rice-like texture. You can finely shred in a food processor or grate by hand.
Put cauliflower “rice” in a large pot and steam till soft. Set aside and let cool.
Take ~3 strips of (beef) bacon, cook and shred into little bits.
Cook spinach and warm up your sauce.
Cut onion into rings and fry till soft and caramelized.
Take your cooled down cauliflower and add spices, eggs whites and spoonful of coconut flour to bind it.
Mix and separate into even portions.
Place parchment paper on a baking sheet.
Mold each portion into a pie crust on your paper and place into hot oven.
Cook crust for 15 minutes or until it feels firm (it will depend on how thick you make the pies and how wet the cauliflower is.)
Take out of oven and add warm sauce and layer your toppings. I start with spinach, then onions, and then bacon.
