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!!


CRUST:
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.


TOP WITH:
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!
