Cauliflower pizza

Okay, I can not even begin to describe to you how totally yummy this recipe is. I know it sounds bizarre, if you haven’t tried it before … but you really need to give it a chance. For my fellow Take Shape for Life/Medifast friends, this meal fits the requirements for your Lean and Green. And for anyone else … it’s just plain healthy and YUMM-O! So, enjoy!!

1/4 cup Egg Beaters (1/8 Lean)
3/8 cup (which = 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp) 2% low-fat shredded Mexican 4-cheese variety, for a firmer crust (3/8 lean)
1 cup Fresh Raw Cauliflower, shredded in a food processor (2 greens)
Dash of Italian (optional)
Mix together and put into a Pam-sprayed foil pie pan (or on a foil-lined baking sheet). Pat down so it all sticks together. Bake 20 minutes at 450, until it starts to turn brown, then flip it over and bake another 10 minutes.

2 tsp Ragu Pizza Quick sauce (only .5g of sugar = 2 condiments)
1/4 cup 2% low-fat shredded Mozzarella cheese (1/4 lean)
1/4 cup of the Morning Star Sausage crumbles (1/4 lean)
1/2 cup of veggies – bell peppers, mushrooms, etc. (1 green)
Put back in oven for about 10 minutes so that the cheese melts.

This is the recipe exactly as I found it. The only suggestion I would really make is to check the crust after about 15 minutes during the first bake. Mine got a little crispy around the edges by the 20 minute mark. But I like it crispy, so I was okay with that. The sausage crumbles are yummy, and I will probably use them next time. But I had leftover turkey off the BBQ from last night, so I shredded some white meat and substituted it where it cauls for the “sausage” crumbles. WAY yummy. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!

Oh yeah, and the total cost per serving? About $1.50. You get a personal-sized pizza for $1.50. Where else can you find any pizza for that price?!!

  1. This makes one serving (one individual pizza). So if you're making for 2 of you or for the whole family, just increase the ingredients accordingly. I actually make each one separately to make sure the measurements come out right. I can fit up to 3 individual pizzas on a baking sheet at a time, which is perfect for our little family. 🙂

    • I have found it at Fred Meyer, Albertson’s & Thriftway. The brand is Walden Farms. At Fred Meyer, it is in the cereal aisle, near the syrups. At Albertson’s, it is in the “diet” aisle, near the Slimfast-type stuff. And at the Hillsboro Thriftway, it is near where all the gluten-free, “health” food options are. Hope that helps!
