Low Carb Cauliflower Spinach Pizza
Low Carb Journey
Trying to learn a new way of eating can be rewarding (because you are learning new things) but it can also feel like a punishment (blah tasting foods). So the cure all of this is to use a lot of spices! I have a ton of different spices, but two of my favorite things is: Mrs Dash extra spicy blend and Kraft Hot Pepper Parmesan Cheese (which is excellent on salads). Yes, I use these on a daily base.
If you taste cauliflower on its own, it sort of does not have a taste (to me) but add a little butter and pepper and it comes alive! I am just not sure how to say this without sounding arrogant, but this pizza is so good that I felt like I could have eaten the whole thing. Except after two pieces, I was full but that made for some good leftovers for a few days!
The next time I make this pizza I am going to try and add some different things to the crust, like sundried tomatoes chopped would be good. Hmm... anyway, lets get this recipe wrote out!
Ingredients For the Crust
- 1-Head Cauliflower, cut into florets away from core
- 3/4 Cup Shredded Cheese, I used Italian Blend
- 1/2 teaspoon Oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon Pink Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Kraft Red Pepper Parmesan Cheese, You can use regular para cheese and just add hot spices to it
- 2-3 Egg Whites
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Line a non-stick sheet pan with parchment paper and spray lightly with a cooking spray. (I did not do that and my crust stuck to the parchment paper so next I know to spray it)
- Bake for 20 minutes on 400 degrees.
Use your imagination
With my pizza, I made it with spinach and bacon bits. I used bacon bits only because I had some that were getting ready to expire.
I washed and chopped a bunch of spinach and sprinkled that on the crust that had been baking for 20 minutes. Next I sprinkled some bacon bits and topped it with some shredded Italian cheese.
Some suggestions for topping keeping Low-Carb in mind:
-Spinach mixed with Kale
Keep in mind these are only a few Low Carb Veggies.. there are more and there are also some you should only have in moderation. Don't forget to add your cheese over the top!
After you dress your pizza with whatever you want, put back into the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
