When the moon hits your eye…

Like a big pizza pie that’s amore.

I tried to add that song in the background but for aome odd reason mp3 is not an option.  That’s annoying!!  So the best I could do is have a video of Dean singing, I love this song.  Enjoy!!!

Anyhow getting back to PIZZA!!!  That’s what we had for dinner last night.  Pizza on a low carb diet,  Yuppers!!!
First I need to start off by saying that although I’d love to have my husband cook more often he’s not a cook by any means.  A few months ago my mom came for a visit and showed my husband how to make homemade pizza.  He took notes and yesterday was the first time and he was excited to make some pizza.  I have to say he did really good, my kitchen wasn’t a disaster area. He made two pizza and they turned out great.  One is a pepperoni and the other is steak and bacon pizza.



 

 

Now I wasn’t left out in the cold here I had my own low carb pizza.  It also turned out really good too.  I used cauliflower as the base/ dough and half the pizza was tomato sauce, bacon and olives and the other half was no sauce but  leftover roasted peppers and onions from last night’s dinner, with cheese.  YUMMY!!!

Needless to say my kids didn’t want to try mine, they didn’t know what they were missing.

Ok so here’s my Low Carb Pizza recipe.


 

 

 

 

Pizza Dough

Ingredients:
2 cups Cauliflower, cooked, mashed

2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
1 large Egg
1 egg white
3 TB chopped parsley
1/2 tsp Oregano, ground
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Half Salt

Preparation:
Chop a whole cauliflower and boil until fork tender.  Let cool and place in food processor and puree.  (Can be frozen in small baggies for easy use next time)

Combine the rest of the ingredients and cauliflower in a bowl.
Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
Spread a thin layer of mixture in the pan and bake for 20 mins or until golden brown.
While the crust is in the oven, you can prepare the pizza toppings.

Pizza Topping: (Here’s the fun part you can add whatever you want)
Pizza sauce

Mozzarella
Olives
Pepperoni
Mushrooms
Bacon

Bake at 350 or broil until the cheese is melted.

Buon appetito 🙂

Awhile back I posted a recipe for cauliflower pizza and it was so good we ate it plan with out any toppings.  This time when I made it again I made a half & half.  One side had tomato sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni the other half had just mozzarella and sauteed mushrooms.  My favorite was the mushroom pizza.

I have a few other ideas for this pizza that I plan on trying so stay tuned 🙂
