I have been reading and seeing this concept on all of the healthy eating sites I visit and I honestly had been hesitant to try it because some of the other cauliflower recipes I’ve tried haven’t really been monumental. I love, love, love my cauliflower fries, but cauliflower mashed potatoes? Not so much. But a friend here at work raved about this pizza crust so I decided that I’d give it a try…I could kick myself for waiting so long.
Honestly, this is one of those things that I’m going to try to slip under Hubby’s nose…he’s not a big veggie eater, but he’ll usually try something if I tell him I think he’d like it. I’m not even going to tell him, because just the word “cauliflower” will turn him off. But I truly think he’ll actually like this.
Okay, so this could be a deceiving recipe if you think just because there’s cauliflower in it that it’s low calorie. It’s definitely low carb, but unless you use fat free cheese, you’re going to get a lot of calories in just the crust alone. That’s not even including the toppings (you’ll probably add more cheese on top, right???)…
Which brings me to another point…the OTHER thing I’ve never been a fan of is fat free cheese…uhh, what’s the point? But after I figured out how many calories even 2% cheese adds, I broke down and decided that since the crust will be pretty flavorful, and the cheese is not the star of the show, I’d try it. Yet again…completely sold on it now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to be sprinkling it on much of anything, but for this or similar uses, I’m totally using it. By doing this, it saved me 100 calories …that’s 100 calories I could use on TOP of the pizza!
Alright, let’s get to it!
