So, the first issue with pizza is the crust. Obviously we can’t make a traditional crust. So, yesterday when i was making my tacos, I just made more of the cauliflower “tortillas” and saved them for tonight’s dinner! Pizza!! The second thing you have to find is a pizza sauce that doesn’t have sugar in it. If all else fails, get some tomato paste, add a little bit of water and season with salt, pepper and oregano. Top it with all your favorite vegetable and meat toppings you wish, a small bit of lite mozzarella cheese, and you’ve got yourself a crave-busting Dukan Diet recipe. I’m not going to lie and tell you the crust gets super crusty and it’s JUST LIKE pizza, but the flavor is all there. You won’t be disappointed.
1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets and then chopped finely in a food processor
2 T oat bran
2 T Nutritional Yeast, optional (if you can find it, it really gives the tortillas a nutty flavor)
a dash of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
Microwave the cauliflower for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from bowl and squeeze through cheesecloth, until cauliflower is as dry as you can get it. Return it to the bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, mixing well with a spoon. On a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet, drop 6 equal sized dollops of mixture and spread out with the back of your spoon. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, flip, and bake another 5. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
I sprayed the bottom of my crust with cooking spray and placed it on a cookie sheet. Then I topped my pizza with a couple tablespoons of tomato paste, mixed with a teaspoon of water and seasoned with salt, pepper and oregano. Then I finely diced jalapeno and red pepper and loaded it on. Then a couple tablespoons of lite string cheese, shredded, and a quarter teaspoon of Parmesan. Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes. Delicious–Enjoy!
