Low-carb pizza attempt #1

We’ve been missing pizza around here. My husband had perfected pizza dough and the entire process of making pizza in our gas oven in the past couple of years and pizza night was always a delight to everyone in the family.

A friend recommended this cauliflower crust pizza recipe, so I thought I’d give it a try a few nights ago. I like it for it’s simplicity and the fact that it’s very quick to make (compared to, you know, actual bread dough). Cook the cauliflower, run it through the processor grater, mix it with some cheese and eggs, pre-bake for 12 or so minutes, top it, bake for another 10 minutes or so.

It tasted great to the adults, but not to my 7 year old, and I think the 5 year old had issues with the texture. However, it was limp, and after several years of spectacular homemade (carb-filled) wheat pizza, it was disappointing to the crowd. I would totally eat it again, but it did not get the thumbs up from the kids.

Next time I’ll check The Great Pizza Experiment and try one of those.
