Attention everyone that has ever existed ever! I have FINALLY perfected my cauliflower pizza crust recipe and let me just tell you that it tastes as amazing as it looks. As I have been following the Ideal Protein diet, I have been trying to create fun recipes that still follow protocol. I have worked on cauliflower pizza crust for awhile and recently created the best recipe using ideas from multiple people on instagram. Read on if you’re interested in indulging without all the carbs.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 packet Ideal Protein Potato Puree
- 2 cups frozen cauliflower
- 3 egg whites
Directions for Crust:
-Pre-heat the oven to 350
-Cook frozen cauliflower in the microwave for 10 minutes or until warm
-Pulse in food processor until cauliflower has a rice texture (my food processor is broken so chopping until this texture is reached works as well)
-Using a cheesecloth or coffee filter, squeeze moisture out of cauliflower until dry
-Now add IP Potato Puree, egg whites, and spices (I used garlic powder)
-Using a spoon, create a crust-like shape (starting from the outer rim inward) on well greased parchment paper
-Bake for 25-30 minutes
-Remove crust and set oven to broil
After the crust is made be as creative as desired with toppings.
I topped my pizza off with Walden Farms Italian Sun Dried Tomato dressing, an organic spring mix, white mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, chicken, more garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary. Then I popped it in the oven for about five minutes on broil.
The pizza serves one person and is extremely filling. It is a great low carb option for pizza lovers on a diet. If anyone in the Enid area is interested in the Ideal Protein diet, like Ideal Health and Weight Loss Clinic on Facebook. They have been great to work with, especially for someone like me who isn’t overweight but is just looking to lose a few pounds. Their transformations are amazing.
