Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower is one of my favorite words, but I wouldn't say it's one of my favorite veggies.. until made into a pseudo-pizza crust! HOLLER!

So, Mom and I have been kicking the 17 Day Diet's behind. Here's the link to Wikipedia's 17 Day Diet page..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/17_Day_Diet

Here's the book.

The diet is designed by Dr. Mike Moreno, and as an expert in the health and fitness field, and a self-proclaimed "I hate diets" person, I totally recommend this one. Because it isn't a diet (Confused?). This isn't a fad diet. You're eating exactly how you should be eating. Cycle 1 is the most strict, obviously. And you're cutting out carbs from breads/grains all together (ok, for 17 days and a 'jump start', not ok for a lifetime. Shame on you, Dr. Adkins), and eating fruits (your only carbs) before 2pm. However, each cycle you're introducing something new.. like cycle two allows for some starches.. and of course, each cycle is 17 days long. Mom and I started Cycle 3, yesterday. It's completely doable, although I wouldn't say easy.

As for the cauliflower pizza crust..

Mix together:
1 cup riced cauliflower (Ma steamed it, then put it in the food processor – till it looked like mashed potatoes) (Pics are backward.. Sorrrrrryyyyyyyy)



1 cup Kraft Fat Free Mozzarella
2 large eggs (Ma used 1 egg white from a large egg and liked it better)
Makes 1 crust.
Spray cookie sheet with pam – spread “dough” as thin as possible and sprinkle with seasonings: parsley, oregano, garlic salt


Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (Ma baked for 15-16 minutes till the middle was “browned”) She also made a 2nd crust with 2 eggs (that’s what the recipe called for) – and baked it for 20 minutes.

Here's the pic, for the visual learners..
 Wallah!


We cut into squares and dipped into Fat Free Spaghetti sauce. Mom and I ate them like chips.

Yum yum in my tum tum.

Happy Monday!
