regret…& cauliflower crust pizza
I try to live my life with out them
but this year
I am overwhelmed by
the abundance of them…
the father of my child
the man that I chose with all my heart to bring
my Tunie B. into this world
has not seen his daughter in over 5 months
I am devastated
can’t wrap my head around it
I have no idea how a man who loved his kid…..sooo much
can just walk away
nada – ZERO
no amount of rationale
from….anyone (can help get through to him)
he has walked away…
for 5 months and counting
and all I can think is
I am having a hard day.
No REGRET Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe:
makes 1 8-9 inch round pizza
I cook when I have a hard day…I cook I cook and then I cook some more. Luckily I have a lo of recipe testing to do this week – but I have pretty much procrastinated doing any of my real testing work, and went with this pizza this morning. I saw this idea recently and I have been dying to try it, wanted to see for myself what all the hype was about.
It was very good. Normally all the recipes call for fresh cauliflower that you grate on a mandolin into rice like pieces. However, because I only will use frozen cauliflower, I defrosted the cauliflower and used a food processor to make the “cauliflower rice flour” and then microwaved it to remove as much of the moisture as I could. The cauliflower makes a good alternative crust if you want to avoid flour. and Tunie B. seemed to love it as well. I will say that it does not replace the good ol fashion pizza crust, and I don’t think I will give up on my flour crust all together. But, I love the idea of making this pizza on a regular basis and not feeling guilty about eating 2 slices for lunch or dinner.
2 lbs frozen cauliflower, defrosted
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup favorite homemade marinara sauce (or jar sauce)
Pre-heat oven to 375 F and spray your pizza pan with non-stick spray.
In a food processor, using the shredder/ricer attachment, process the cauliflower and transfer to a microwave bowl.
Microwave the cauliflower on high for 3 minutes. Add the parmesan, 1/2 cup mozzarella, eggs, and all the spices and then mix everything together.
Spread the mixture onto your pizza pan, making sure that the crust is thick and even. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and then spread the tomato sauce on to the cauliflower crust. Add your shredded mozzarella to the top and bake in oven for another 10 minutes until cheese has melted.
Slice & serve.
