It's going very well.
But I was craving pizza. How can you make a pizza without dough?
Turns out that not only is it possible to make a no dough or "crustless" pizza, but you can do so in a way that it is so, so good!
I had heard you could use cauliflower as a "crust." So I set out to the Internet to do a little bit of "research." This is a tried and true method. You can find plenty of recipes online. I was most drawn to "Cauliflower Crust Hawaiian Pizza," largely because of the awesome photos and large fan following.
I did go with some slight alterations.
After preparing the cauliflower, I added it in a bowl of Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil and one egg.
I added the cauliflower in a 9-inch glass dish that had been prepped with butter. With the cauliflower mix in place, I brushed about one teaspoon of olive oil on top. I baked this on 415 for about 15 minutes.
Then, I topped this with pizza cheese, then added a round of pepperoni.
Into the oven for about 15 minutes, and there you have it: A nice, personal pizza for two meals. All told, this took less than 40 minutes to prepare. Now, the cauliflower didn't brown enough, so I might have left it in the oven by itself for more than 20 minutes.
I'll have to play with this recipe a bit. But, in all, brilliant and yum-may!
