Looks like pizza

Tonight I adapted a Pinterest recipe with what I had in stock at Casa Silvers.

I have seen cauliflower crust recipes several times on Pinterest so I decided to make my own.

I steamed a small bag of frozen cauliflower until it was very tender. Then added a tablespoon of butter, salt and pepper to taste, and two eggs.

With my handy stick blender I whipped the cauliflower into a mashed potato consistency. Once smooth I added a tablespoon of Italian herbs and mixed together.

I preheated my oven to 400 and oiled my sheet pan. I spread the smooth cauliflower into a thin circle on the pan. I then baked until golden brown. It was amazing how much it looked like pizza crust.

As for toppings I used:
Kalamata olives
Sun dried tomatoes

I guess it could be called Greek/Italian gluten free pizza. Or GIG pizza for short :) I really enjoyed it! Sam had shepherds pie (mashed potatoes, steak bites, wilted spinach and brown gravy layered in a bowl) he asked why I cooked things that stink. He hates cauliflower, brussel sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage so unless I make something from those things when he isn't here and the house has time to air out he immediately wants no part of what I'm concocting.

Have you ever made a cauliflower pizza crust? What did you top yours with?

7 months later

Well I know it has been far too long since I have posted but our lives have changed a lot over the past 7 months. On January 15th we were blessed with the birth of our first child and our lives are definitely changed forever.  Shep is the light of our life and apple of our eye :)

Today we spent the day admiring him.

Sam has told me that my gardening days may have to be put on hold a few years since I will be chasing this little guy around.

I am behind this year for sure but hopefully I will get some tomato plants soon.  Last year I planted March 1st and it didn't freeze again but I bet we have a later freeze this year. We shall see.

The blizzard that is hitting the panhandle tonight will probably not make it this far south but we could sure use the moisture.

I hope I can do a better job over the spring and summer of keeping everyone posted on whats going on in our family of three!
