Pizza with Gluten-Free Crust

Cauliflower substitutes have been the focus of my kitchen adventures the past month...Or should I say my Pinterest Kitchen adventures. I've pinned and pinned so many different recipes. I decided it was finally time to experiment with one.

I was inspired to do pizza because a friend of mine is gluten-free and also a vegetarian. She comes from a family of intense pizza-lovers and I wanted to do a practice run of a recipe that I could make for her when she comes to visit my apartment. This recipe was nearly perfect! I say nearly because it definitely does not taste like traditional pizza crust. Not even close, sorry to disappoint you. Cauliflower actually holds a bit of moisture so my crusts never got crunchy. I also think it was missing a little extra something...Maybe garlic powder? I will have to play around with it next time. I used a food processor to rice the cauliflower. More to clean but it takes way less time than using the grater, which is a good alternative if you do not own a food processor.

I loved that it makes four personal pizzas! I could easily halve the recipe to make this for myself for a quick, easy dinner for one. 

Anyway, these are the toppings I used on mine...(Pardon the photo quality. These are taken on my iPad and iPhone.)

  • Muir Glen Organic Garlic Roasted Garlic tomato sauce (first time trying it and it was FANTASTIC)
  • Red peppers
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Olives
  • Fresh basil (from my basil plant, Matilda...not shown)
  • Shredded cheese (not shown)

  • Next time, I'd love to make a pizza with onions, banana peppers, and pineapple! You can always add meat to it as well! I'm just a veggie lover and wanted to stick with the rabbit food. ;)

    This is my finished product. I used half of the "dough" to make two small personal pizzas for myself. 

    I felt like I was cheating but not at the same time. :p
