Very good polenta-like crust This was good but my crust took a lot longer to cook than the recipe stated maybe my head of cauliflower was too big? I subbed artichoke hearts for olives and added goat cheese. Like I said very good. The crust reminded me of polenta similar in texture but with a nice roasted cauliflower flavor. I dipped some in marinara sauce and that was even better. Best part was using organic goat cheese made within walking distance if my house! The goat cheese really added a nice touch but feta would likely be just as good (especially if using olives unfortunately I don't care for them). Pros: Very low cal easy to alter Cons: Crust took longer to cook didn't quite crisp up
I really like cauliflower. DH really likes cauliflower. this was a waste of a cauliflower. this was the second recipe of this group of recipes and it was... sorry to say nasty. I didn't expect it to taste like pizza but I expected it would taste good in its own right but it didn't. I bought sundried tomatoes ( taste bitter) and meyer lemons which I'd never tried before so it was a relatively expensive test. If I'd roasted the cauliflower with a little olive oil and served it on a plate by itself it would have been way less fuss and 100x better. I'm sorry to be so negative but somebody must taste these recipes before they're printed???
I must have done something wrong also I have never had a BAD PIZZA before the pizza crust was more like a tasteless thick wet sponge. I ve retired it several times using other site recipes same results basically then found one that uses 3/4ths bread and 1/3rds cauliflower mix I opted for 1/2 bread dough and 1/2 cauliflower/parmesan cheese mix it turned out better more like pizza crust but I had to add 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning to the dough elsewise it was tasteless. I also used sun dried tomatoes fresh basil turkey pepperoni and low-fat real mozzarella balls in brine sliced thin as the topping with a parmesan white sauce then cut the size down to a 4 inch pizza to stay with in the calorie count by adding a big salad with low calorie dressing it wasn t bad.
Tasty! Better than Expected! I gave this recipe a try and liked it! First I cut the recipe in half. I made a few adjustments to the recipe by eliminating the whole egg and using egg whites. Also used sundried tomatoes NOT in oil and added some pre-cooked (to eliminate excess liquid) zucchini mushroom onions and used 2 T Bruschetta sauce. I also sauted the cauliflower rice in a nonstick pan with a spray of oil. I did not recalculate the calories but I didnt miss the excess oil. Not very crispy (maybe should have baked longer?) so use a knife and fork to enjoy! Pros: Low Carb. Low Fat with few adjustments Cons: Center of Crust Soft
We made this last week and I can't find my Eating Well magazine today to remake so searched online. I was surprised at the negative comments as my husband son and I very much enjoyed the Mediterranean Cauliflower Pizza. We added artichokes which maybe made the difference. We did not have Meyer lemons so just used regular lemons (they were some we had frozen which I recommend for ease of peeling the lemon sections.) Plan to make the crust a bit thinner tonight but as I said we are making it a second time in less than 2 weeks! I highly recommend this as a much lower calorie and healthier option to regular pizza!
Mushy gloppy mess! This was a complete flop! Prep time was way too long and the results were a failure! Made a homemade marinara for dipping...and still was disappointed. Ended up having a peanut butter sandwich for dinner. Pros: Daily serving of veggies Cons: Will never make again
Better the next day I almost didn't make this based on the previous reviews but I had already purchased the ingredients so I went ahead. I did add a little extra cheese to the crust but since it's so low calorie I wasn't worried about it. I used all the toppings called for in the recipe (choosing Kalamata olives) and it was good the first night. The next day however it was delicious. Overnight the toppings had time to really flavor the crust and it was very flavorful. Cons: A lot of work
I used the cauliflower crust recipe but added my own toppings- garlic infused olive oil mozzarella cheese roasted red pepper and mushrooms. The end product was great! It's obviously not your typical pizza dough but a good substitute vessel for the other ingredients.
Excellent flavour We loved this particularly the unusual topping. It works well for vegetarian and non-veg friends - just have some chopped ham on the side for the meat eaters to sprinkle on their slices. I think arugula will go nicely with topping instead of basil. I shall definitely be making this again - but may cook the cauliflower in the microwave - that may make it too mushy but it is worth a try. I did use two eggs after reading some of the comments. Pros: Light and flavorful Cons: A little time consuming
