Cauliflower Crust Pizza

There is a growing trend in athletes and other health conscious individuals to start ditching the gluten and start eating whole foods as a means of increasing athletic performance and improved digestion and for good reason. There are far superior food choices that you can make that are less processed, have a higher nutritional content, and will not leave you with a huge insulin spike after each meal.

Eliminating gluten does not mean that you have to lose out on some of your favourite foods though; if anything you will experience just how delicious real food is!

Here is one of my favourite go-to recipes for a quick and easy Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Ingredients

1 head of cauliflower, riced
2 eggs
1 cup cheese (your choice)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano

 

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper

2. Remove any stems or leaves from the cauliflower. You can either chop the cauliflower until it looks like rice or add chunks of it to a food processor until a similar size is achieved.

3. Microwave cauliflower uncovered in a glass bowl for 7 minutes –until translucent.

4. When cauliflower finishes cooking, mix it with the remaining ingredients and spread dough over baking sheet (½ inch thick)

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes (or until crust is golden and crispy on the outside and cooked in the middle)

6. Top with sauce and what ever toppings you would like (i.e chicken, spinach, peppers)

7. Place back in the over and Broil for 5 minutes

Allow pizza to cool for 2 minutes and enjoy!

The crust can be made ahead of time if you are in a pinch and the toppings can be added when you are ready to broil. Whether you are trying to avoid gluten or not, adding in more whole foods that are naturally gluten free is not a bad option for overall health!
