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:
Spinach
Capers
Kalamata olives
Feta
Sun dried tomatoes
Prosciutto

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?

  1. I like your pizza idea. I just have a hard time reading it with the dark background you have on here. Are you gluten intolerant or celiac?

  2. I haven't made the cauliflower crust yet, but Zac wants me to try it. Did it stick together okay?

  3. Oh, and try Copa sometime if you don't have Prosciutto. It is in the same kind of package over with the prosciutto. It is marinated in wine and has some pepper on it. It is really really good with all of this stuff. Semi-oven dried cherry tomatoes are really good on pizza also. Just cut them in half, olive oil, salt and put in the oven for a while makes a good juicy rich sauce. They do that at Dough Pizzaria in San Antonio:) It is worth the trip to SA to eat there!

    1. Yes it does stick together well. I LOVE Copa! There is a platter at Costco that has proscuitto, copa and two salami varieties I pretty much eat the whole thing before I get home! Sam and I ate at Dough several months ago. OMG that place is amazing!
