Cauliflower Pesto Pizza
Cauliflower Pesto Pizza is delicious – I mean, it’s topped with pesto – and really pesto makes everything just a bit better.
Have I ever mentioned my love for pesto? It’s just so tasty and good on so many things!
My family loves pizza, just as I’m sure many of you do.
However, pizza is not the healthiest of meals. Dough, sauce, cheese, and if you’re my boys, Italian sausage and pepperoni. At least my daughter enjoys black olives, pineapple, mushrooms, and/or bell peppers with her pepperoni and sausage. (My daughter is 7 and going through a phase where she likes to try all kinds of food — it’s so wonderful — makes life so much easier for this mama!)
Back to this Cauliflower Pesto Pizza.
While it doesn’t replace traditional pizza crust — I mean could anything really replace brick oven pizza? I doubt it. Cauliflower pizza crust is really tasty. You can pick it up just like a traditional pizza, and it’s really flavorful. And as a bonus, you don’t feel kinda gross like I do after eating all the salt in a lot of take out pizzas.
Cauliflower pizza is perfect if you’re on a low carb or anti inflammatory diet. Or if you’re trying to get your kids to eat more veggies. My children love this pizza. Next time I plan to double the recipe just to ensure I have enough. My son can eat so much pizza and they all love pesto, so this pizza was definitely a winner in my house.
If you’re not a fan of pesto, traditional pizza sauce is really tasty too. And feel free to top it with whatever pizza toppings you enjoy.
But the most important steps I’ve learned are — first to ensure that you’ve squeezed out all the water after you microwave the cauliflower. Otherwise, the pizza with be soggy. And two, add the the garlic infused olive oil to the top of the crust before baking. It really enhances the flavor of the crust.
Otherwise, feel free to experiment. My husband and I topped our Cauliflower Pesto Pizza with tomatoes, but our kids enjoyed it just with cheese.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
