Tasty Tuesday: Pizza modified
We normally have homemade pizza every other week or so. We make our own crust from one of several recipes that we've collected over the years. I'd share them here, but I would need to get copyright permission first and I'm feeling kind of lazy about that as I type this up, so instead, you'll get the crust recipe that I got to use since I can't eat carbs anymore.
I found this recipe for Cauliflower Crust Pizza from Eat.Drink.Smile via pinterest. I followed the directions almost exactly, my one alteration was how I riced the cauliflower, I used the grater on my food processor. It worked great. Not only did it taste good, but I could pick it up like pizza, now I did let it rest a good long time before putting it under the broiler, because of the fact that there were other pizzas that needed to be cooked. It's unusual because not only does it work for pizza, it's close enough to the real thing that you eat it and think "There's something different about this, but I don't quite know what it is."
Okay, I will also share with you one of our pizza sauce recipes.
1 can tomato past with Italian herbs
1 small can tomato sauce
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic chopped fine
Heat a tablespoon or so of olive oil in a pan, add onion. Cook until tender and starting to brown, add garlic and cook until fragrant (just a few seconds). Add tomato paste and sauce, heat through. Viola, pizza sauce.
You can add your own seasonings to it like basil, oregano, marjoram, etc. It's very accepting of your experimentation.
