Hello friends! Whether you’re new to the Clean Eats or a veteran, I think you’ll enjoy this recipe. It’s super easy (although it does require a food processor). Let’s get to it.
Ingredients for the crust:
2 C grated cauliflower (about 1/2 a head)
1/4 C plain greek yogurt
2 tablespoons of herb mixture (I personally use the Mrs Dash Table Blend which is salt free. You could also use a mixture of dried basil, thyme, oregano…whatever you have on hand. This will just give it more flavor).
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
First, chop up the cauliflower into food processor friendly pieces. I have also done this in a blender. It is NOT fun since your blender can only do a bit at a time, but it does work.
After this you can add the Greek yogurt, egg and spices. Gently mix well together. Then, on a well greased (I used olive oil spray) cookie sheet, pat the dough out until its about 1/2 inch thick.
Bake the crust like this for thirty minutes. While its baking, decide what toppings you want. My recommendation is to cook the toppings first. I sauteed up some onion, broccoli and chicken sausage. Then, after the crust was done, I added a bit of sauce, mozzarella cheese, and the veggie/sausage saute. I returned to the oven just long enough for the cheese to get all nice and melt-y.
The beauty of this recipe is once you have the crust, you can add anything! You can top it with tons of veggies and just a bit of cheese! It really does taste great. Of course the crust does fall apart a bit since there is no flour holding it together, but it definitely rivals the real thing. It’s also awesome left over after popping it in the microwave.
I hope you enjoy and let me know if you try it out!
