Cauliflower IP Pizza #1 - 8oz protein + 2 cups Veggies
Cauliflower, crumbled
3 cloves Garlic, chopped
2 eggs whites
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Sauce: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/4430615-post5.html
Pizza Toppings: Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey, Fresh Basil Leaves, Tomato Slices, Bell Peppers, Mushrooms, etc.
Optional: Veggie Cheese, sparingly (talk with your coach first)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
1. Combine cauliflower with garlic in a food processor and pulse until crumbly, being careful not to overmix (you donít want it to become a paste). You can also use a box grater to shred the cauliflower.
2. Microwave cauliflower ~8-10 minutes, allow to cool slightly and squeeze out excess water.
3. Stir this mixture together with eggs whites and Italian Seasoning.
4. Form into pizza crusts and bake them alone for ~15-20 minutes (or until golden).
5. Meanwhile, prepare any toppings you want: brown meat, sautee veggies, etc.
6. Remove pizza crusts, add Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Sauce, pizza toppings, and optional veggie cheese
7. Bake for another 10 minutes.

*You can use your puree as a pizza sauce!
*TWO pizza options available - either using your 2c veggies (for the crust and toppings combined), or alternatively below you can use an IP packet.
*Cauliflower Crust Inspiration Recipe: http://www.ahappyhippymom.com/2012/0...rb-recipe.html
*1 medium-sized head of cauliflower (~4 cups chopped) yielded me two large pizza crusts.
*The crispy edges of the crust were the best part, next time will try making little mini-pizzas to maximize that part!

So no cheese since we can't on ideal protein. I guess I should have put more egg whites and made only 1 large pizza. It didn't stick very well. And I will also use parchment paper next time. It was very time consuming...

Wow - Lovely recipe. I will try it tonight! Is this considered 2 portions or 4?

Thanks for your input. I will try again when I'm over my frustrating Friday night trying to make pizza. lol Maybe the cauliflower wasn't cooked enough and I will definitely try adding more egg whites.

Just had this for lunch and I gotta say "Wow!"

I used 1 cup of shredded calui w/ 1 egg white and some garlic - was just for me. Topped it w/ WF tomato/basil sauce, 2 oz. of turkey sausage, yellow peppers, mushrooms, some veggie shreds. That made a 6 - 8" crust.

It was a bit of work, but I am a happy camper! :)

I wonder if these would freeze well? Would be really handy to have them ready to go.

Finally made this last night. I loaded it up with garlic, because I was going to try making it more like breadsticks- It was fantastic!

Smelled like a buttery garlic roll while it was cooking and tasted like one too. I think I will spread it really thin in the pan next time so I can use it as a wrap.

i am currently making this and it has been in the oven for about 20 mins already and it does not seem to be sticking together :( should i let it keep cooking and hope it bakes together?

Looking fabulous in your pics! keep it up. I love seeing pictures like yours, it really motivates me.
