Eating clean does not have to mean missing out on your favourite foods.  This super simple and delicious pizza recipe is not only easy but it turns out amazing every time.
2 Cups Grated Cauliflower (I use a food processor but hand grater is fine too)
1/4 Cup Egg Whites
1/4 Cup Oats
1 Clove Garlic
1 Tbsp Pistachios OR Pinenuts (optional, I use them because they offer a gorgeous taste)
1 oz Skimmed Mozzarella
1 Tsp Oregano
2 Tsp Parsley
1/8 Tsp Brewer’s Yeast (optional, but gives a richer flavour)
Himalayan Salt and Pepper to taste
Cooking Spray
2 Tbsp Pesto (from bottle or 4-5 leaves fresh bunch basil, 1/2 bunch coriander, 1/8 tsp brewers yeast, juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 tsp Olive Oil, 1/2 Tbsp pine nuts, salt and pepper to taste all blended.)
1 Tbsp Pizza Sauce (from bottle or tomato paste blended with oregano, garlic, salt and pepper)
1/2 Cup Wild Mushrooms OR Portabello
1 oz Low Fat Goat’s Cheese OR Feta Cheese OR Skimmed Mozzarella
*Feel free to add 1/2 cup peppers, onions, spinach, tomatoes or any other veggies of your choice as well as protein such as tofu, chicken, seitan etc.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.  Meanwhile, prepare and pan fry remaining optional toppings and veggies until cooked.

6. Place back in the oven for 3-5 minutes until cheese melts slightly. Serve warm!

A variation of the cauliflower pizza crust I made last week. Definitely trying this soon and you should too! :)

I made cauliflower pizza crust!

Find the recipe here. I grated the cauliflower with a cheese grater. I think I used a little more than a cup.. I didn’t measure anything properly because I was too hungry to care haha. I followed the recipe, also adding in a little ground flax. The recipe calls for a cup of cheese. That seems a little excessive to me for one serving size so I put in like 1/3 cup instead of light mozzarella. The mixture seemed to be a little watery when I put it on the pan, but it dried up quickly in the 450 degree oven! I didn’t really have much in the way of pizza toppings, so I just used tomato sauce, onion, green pepper, and of course cheese! It came out crisp around the edges but a still a liiiiiittle mushy in the middle. I suppose I could have waited and cooked it a little longer. Oh well! I used a fork to eat it, but I could have easily picked it up like a normal pizza. It even tasted and kinda looked like a normal pizza crust!

Overall, it was so yummmmmmy! Definitely hit the spot.

Sadly for you, I didn’t think to take a pic before I ate half of it and gave the other half to my dad. I guess you’ll just have to make it for yourself and see! :)

I’m making that cauliflower pizza crust right now (that I reblogged earlier)! Only I’m not putting an entire cup of cheese into one serving, haha. I’ll make it work :)


Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Ingredients: (1 serving)1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese1 egg, beaten1 tsp dried oregano1/2 tsp crushed garlic1/2 tsp garlic saltOlive oil (optional)
Pizza sauceMozzarella cheese, shreddedOther additional toppings of your choice
Directions:To rice your cauliflower, take 1 large head of cauliflower, remove the stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to a food processor and pulse just until it looks like rice. Alternatively, you can grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater.
Place the riced cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl, add 1/4 cup water, and microwave for 6-8 minutes, stirring half-way through.
To make the pizza, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a pizza pan or cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower, mozzarella cheese and egg together and stir until well incorporated. Add the oregano, garlic, and garlic salt. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and shape into a 9-inch circle. Brush the crust with olive oil to help it brown in the oven.
Baked at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes, until the crust is browned and cooked through the middle.
Remove the crust from the oven, add your sauce and toppings. Place under a broiler at high heat until the cheese is melted and bubbly. (About 3-4 minutes).
Allow the pizza to cool slightly, then cut into slices and serve.
