I was at work the other day and they brought in pizza, I LOVE pizza!!! I had such a hard time saying no, but was able to stay strong thanks to my support system. I knew there was SOME way I could make a pizza and have it be healthful and delicious! Thank goodness for pinterest!
(my pizza didn’t turn out as pretty… but it was SOO delicious! see above)
Hawaiian pizza happens to be one of my favorites, I love savor and sweet things paired together… HEAVEN! I found this recipe and I had to give it a go! I used turkey bacon (sooo good), tomato-basil sauce (the trick is to find a brand that as no sugar and ingredients you recognize), low moisture mozzarella cheese and canned pineapple. This pizza was very filling and good! I can’t wait to make this again!
cauliflower crust hawaiian pizza
Yield: One 9 to 12-inch pizza (feeds 2 to 3 people)
Prep Time: 25 min
Cook Time: 18 min
1/2 LARGE head cauliflower (or 2+ cups shredded cauliflower)
1 large egg
1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese (or try another kind!)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic (or fresh garlic)
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 cup tomato-basil marinara sauce (or pizza sauce)
1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
3 slices Canadian bacon, cut into strips
1/2 cup pineapple tidbits
1. Shred the cauliflower into small crumbles. You can use the food processor if you’d like, but you just want crumbles, not puree. You’ll need a total of about 2 cups or so of cauliflower crumbles (which is about half a large head of cauliflower. Place the cauliflower crumbles in a large bowl and microwave them (dry) for 8 minutes (see Tips below if you do not have a microwave). Give the cauliflower a chance to cool.
2. Prepare the crust: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet or pizza pan with nonstick spray (or use a nonstick surface). In a medium bowl, mix the cauliflower crumbles (about 1 1/2 cups since they shrink after cooking) with the remaining crust ingredients. Pat the “crust” into a 9 to 12-inch round on the prepared pan. Spray the crust lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 15 minutes (or until golden). Remove the crust from the oven and turn the heat up to broil.
3. Prepare the pizza: Spread the sauce on top of the baked crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese on top. Add the bacon and pineapple, spreading it out around the pizza. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Broil the pizza 3 to 4 minutes, or until the toppings are hot and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Cut into 6 slices and serve immediately.
