Just a quick segue before we begin. Is it me or is cauliflower one of those weird words that the more you write it or look at it, the more it seems mis-spelt? Maybe writing this article has messed with my mind due to the amount of times I had to write cauliflower crust pizza. Anyway, on with the show.
I love pizza. I mean really love it. And I’m always looking for ways to make it more healthy (primarily so I can have it more often!). So when I first discovered cauliflower crust pizza, I thought I was in heaven.
Until I tried to make one. It fell apart.
I was so disappointed! Thinking I had gone wrong somewhere, I tried a few other cauliflower crust pizza recipes. Guess what? Yep, fell apart. So I gave up. And have not even thought about trying again until I saw this video from Clean & Delicious. Not only was it explained clearly, but there was actual video evidence that it would not fall apart. So I gave it a whirl. And seeing as I’m writing about it here, you can probably guess that it worked.
Not only that, it tasted great too! And the calories are nowhere near as high as a normal pizza. Half of this badboy is around 400 calories (depending on how heavy-handed you are with the cheese). So you can easily fit it into your daily allowance and not have to feel guilty either! Make a salad for the side and you have a great mid week “cheat meal”. It also has the added benefit of being vegetarian friendly and gluten free. Which is important to some people.
To make it, grab the ingredients listed below and then follow along with their video.
