Healthy Eating

I will be out of town for the next week, without access to my computer, so I wanted to post a new favorite recipe for all of you who want to eat more healthy, plus it is gluten free!  It's easy to make and really good!

Cauliflower Crusted Pizza
Nonstick spray
2 ½ cups cauliflower, grated
(about ½ of a large head)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
 salt and pepper
½ cup tomato sauce
1 cup (about 20) grape tomatoes,
sliced in half
2 cloves garlic, sliced (2 teaspoons minced)
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Italian seasoning
5 slices bacon, (lightly fried and cut up into small pieces)
Fresh basil leaves

1.      Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 425degrees.
2.      Grate the cauliflower using a box grater until you have 2 cups of cauliflower crumbles.  Place in a large bow and microwave for 7 – 8 minutes, or until soft.  Remove for the microwave and let cool.
3.      Mix in the egg, one cup mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper.  Once combined, pat into a 10 inch round on the prepared pizza pan.  Spray lightly with nonstick spray and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes, till edges look light brown.
Top the pizza with the sauce, ¼ cup mozzarella, Italian seasoning, garlic, red pepper flakes, tomatoes, and bacon.  Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, another 10 minutes.  Top with basil before serving.  Cool 5 minutes before serving.
