Who says you can’t enjoy pizza and still have a healthy diet? You can…the catch is you must be willing to be creative. Enter the cauliflower crust. Skip your usual pizza crust to sidestep the extra calories and pile your favorite toppings on a cauliflower crust instead. No kidding! You can make cauliflower into a tasty crust for craving-worthy pizza. Here’s why, and how.
Ever heard of cauliflower pizza? It’s yumiliscious believe me!
Cauliflower is a nutritional powerhouse. Put it on your plate and help yourself to a wealth of nutrients like phosphorus, folate, and manganese as well as vitamins c, k, and b6. So many vitamins and nutrients mean you can feel good about indulging in one of your favorite foods. Instead of guilt, you get help with digestion and detoxification, reduced inflammation and better hormone balance. The benefits don’t stop there. Eating cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower regularly can help reduce your risk of cancer, obesity and heart disease. You even get a boost in eye health. Plain old flour doesn’t even come close to providing so many health benefits.
Pizza + Salad: Pizzalid!
Add all our least loathsome greens to a large bowl. Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic and salt and pepper to taste in a measuring cup. Pour over the greens and toss. Top with Parmesan shavings.
Spicy Pizza Dip!
Heat a pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add a tablespoon or so of olive oil, throw in the garlic and chopped onions and give them a stir. Cook until the onions are soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth, whisking to deglaze the bottom of the pan. Cook until the liquid reduces by half. Add the crushed tomatoes and stir to combine. Add the brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste and stir. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Let cool, then puree the sauce.
