Flour-less Pizza

So we were hanging out last weekend with some family, and the topic of delicious New Haven, CT pizza came up. We mentioned that we had made a flour-less pizza, and when we revealed that the crust was made of cauliflower, we got some really weird looks. And then “eeewwwww”….

In reality, it was actually really, really good. I’m not saying that it compares to a delicious, chewy, soft, cheesy slice from a New Haven pizza house, but as a healthy alternative it’s quite good!

You can find the recipe here, I got it from Cassey Ho at Blogilates and her Cheap Clean Eats series.

We made a few modifications. For one we made it larger, so we used 1/2 the head of cauliflower and two eggs, and used Daiya dairy free shredded cheese. We  should have made the crust thinner, it didn’t solidify as well with the thickness. We topped it with sauce and sautéed mushrooms, onions, red peppers, and a sprinkle of the Daiya dairy free cheese. Other than that, we followed the recipe and loved it!

Here’s our attempt at Blogilate’s Cheap Clean Eats Flour-less Pizza:

The dairy free cheese shreds we used. Quite tasty!

We made the crust a bit thick, I sugest thinner to hold together well

It presented alright, but like I said thinner crust might work better

We intended to have leftovers, but it was really good so we ate it all....

If you’re looking for the taste of pizza, this is a great healthy alternative. If you’re looking for the taste, texture, smell, and satisfaction of pizza, go ahead and have a You Only Live Once pizza meal!
