Mediterranean Cauliflower Pizza

January/February 2014

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (55 votes)

In this healthy, gluten-free cauliflower “pizza” recipe, shredded cauliflower is mixed with mozzarella and oregano to make a flourless crust that echoes the flavor of a traditional pizza pie. The Meyer lemon, olive and sun-dried tomato topping adds a sophisticated Mediterranean flavor, but feel free to try more traditional pizza toppings, such as marinara sauce and mushrooms—even pepperoni.

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).

Very low cal, easy to alter

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.

Light and flavorful

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!

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.
