Healthy Recipe for Kids: Pizza with a cauliflower crust

Cauliflower pizza crust

(Adapted from www.closetcooking.com)

Ingredients:

1 cauliflower

1 egg

1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  Preheat the oven to 450 F. Break the cauliflower into florets and puree in a food processor. Microwave the mixture for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cooked. Dump the cooked cauliflower into a clean dishtowel and wring out as much water as possible.

  Combine the cauliflower, egg, cheese and Italian seasoning. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  Press the mixture into a wax paper-lined pizza pan much the way you do with traditional crust. Bake the crust for 25 to 30 minutes, until it is dry to the touch and golden brown all over, with medium- to dark-brown edges. (If you don't cook the crust long enough before adding toppings, it will fall apart when you try to hold it.)

  Add pizza sauce and toppings, and bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheese starts bubbling.
