Not too long ago she posted a recipe for Low Carb Cauliflower pizza. Say what?!
Yes, she kicked out all the carbs of a regular pizza base and used instead the good ol' cauliflower.
That sounded like heaven to me! One of the things I really, like REALLY miss (being on a low carb diet) is a lovely pizza.
So of course I had to give this recipe a try!
It's sunny in Ireland (believe me that doesn't happen too often) so we paired the pizza with a BBQ.
It's also a good idea to cover the bowl with a tea towel, otherwise you end up with a really messy kitchen. Carrie had that problem, so I was extra careful.
For every about 250gr you will need to mix one egg into the cauliflower. Also mix an egg per 250gr into the mixture. Pop in a handful (or two) of grated cheese into your bowl. Spice it up with salt, mixed herbs and garlic to your taste.
A friend who is lactose intolerant visited, so we had an extra batch going on, where we only put in egg, but no cheese.
Spread the mixture flat onto a baking tray (don't forget the baking parchment) and put it into the oven for about 10-15 minutes (until it shows a little bit of colour). 170 degrees should do the deal.
We opted for tomato puree, chorizo, salami, mushrooms, dried tomatos and lots of cheese. My friend used buffalo mozzarella and I used two types of cheddar and normal cow milk mozzarella.
When the cheese is melted and a little brown you can get it out of the oven and give it a try.
I really loved it....so good and a real alternative. My BF said it was ok, but not his fav. Well, he is a man after all and loves his junk food ;-))
My friend and me are convinced that we will make it again.
Do you like cold pizza the next morning or day? I do and I must say that it tasted so so close to a normal pizza when I had a slice for lunch today.
Thank you Carrie for bringing this recipe into my life! VERY much appreciated!!!
