Cauliflower Cheese Pizza Is A Great Gluten-Free Meal



 I have found a yummy way to make pizza gluten-free. I have seen posts about this pizza on Facebook and I just had to try it. I am not gluten sensitive, but this pizza is so much more healthier than regular pizza so that made me want to try it. This Cauliflower Cheese Pizza tastes great, even my husband liked it and he is not a vegetable kind of guy. The recipe may sound like a lot of work but it really is not when you compare it to making pizza dough. Trust me, you have to try it.

Cauliflower Cheese Pizza 

ingredients

oven 425F

one head of cauliflower
2 eggs
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
12 oven dried tomatoes(see link at bottom)

Wash and cut cauliflower into pieces. Place cauliflower in food processor and process until it looks like rice. Place the cauliflower meal in a microwave dish and cook on high for 10 minutes. Let the cauliflower cool and then wrap it in a double layer of cheese cloth or a nut milk bag. Holding by the four corners of cheesecloth with one hand, squeeze out the liquid as much as you can from the cauliflower with the other hand. Place the cauliflower in a bowl and add the eggs, 1 cup of cheese,Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Mix well and then spread the mixture on a cookie sheet that is covered with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

I love using these silicone oven gloves to squeeze the liquid out of the cauliflower, no need to wait for it to cool down.




                                       When all the liquid is squeezed out of the cauliflower it looks like this.




                                           How it looks before cooked.
