Easy Cauliflower Crust Pizza (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Grain Free)

There are many of these recipes out there. It’s the same idea as my Spaghetti Squash Pizza Crust.

I figured that with summer coming and the layers of clothing starting to come off, that everyone would love another low carb pizza crust. If you are not worried about carbs then you can always try my regular Pizza Crust.

Oh my goodness!! ūüôā

This is the ultimate in guilt free pizza enjoyment!

After playing with this, I am quite pleased!! I hope that you are as well.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza (Gluten free/ Dairy Free)

1/2 head of cauliflower (approximately 4 c. after it is riced)

2 eggs

1/2 c. Daiya mozzarella cheese (or whatever shredded cheese)-Additional for on top

2 tsp. dry basil

3 cloves garlic- minced (or less if you prefer)

Put florets of cauliflower into your food processor, pulse until it resembles rice.

I usually end up removing the riced stuff and adding in the bigger pieces if they didn’t break down the first time.

Put the riced cauliflower into a glass bowl and microwave uncovered and no water for 6 minutes.**

Let it cool slightly. (This is so you eggs won’t cook mixing them into the hot cauliflower)

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Mix in eggs, cheese, basil, and garlic.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Spread onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet. You can make it as thin or thicker if you would like.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges start to brown.

Remove from oven and top with sauce(i even add pesto to my pizza) and whatever toppings you enjoy.

Pop your pizza back in under broil to melt the additional cheese.

You can make a 9″ by 13″ pizza with a half of a cauliflower. If that is all you are eating, then it’s two servings.

A half batch makes a 9 inch crust- one serving.

** If you do not own a microwave or do not like using one, then you can put your cauliflower into boiling water for 3 minutes, but you have to drain it well, then use a tea towel to squeeze the all liquid out.

Meat Lasagna (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free)

It seems that before you figure out that you have food allergies, people eat things that would make them feel really lousy. There were many thing like that for me. Most things I didn’t realize because I didn’t feel well all the time. Many things I would just not eat for a few months, then say “it will be better this time”. It never was.
So then you start getting rid of things in your diet. Now that I am figuring out the recipes better, I am really enjoying food again.

One thing that I have been missing is lasagna. I have made it once in the last year and a half with goat cheese and I made a white sauce in place of the cottage cheese. It was okay, but not that great.

Today I decided to try again. This time I made it with daiya cheese and cashew cream as the cottage cheese.

I make separate lasagnas for myself and my family, since they don’t have the allergies that I do. So I make a ¬†big one for my family and I make three smaller ones( 5″ by 7″ pans) for myself and freeze the other two. That’s why I don’t specify the size of pan to use. This lasagna was so much better. Tasted great! I’ve made it several times since ūüôā

Meat Lasagna

For Meat Lasagna:

rice lasagna noodles( uncooked)
spaghetti meat sauce
cashew cream ( made with only 2 Tbsp. lemon juice and 1/4 c. water)
daiya cheese (mozzarella)

In a pan, layer a little sauce(so that the noodles don’t stick to the bottom of the pan), noodles, sauce, daiya cheese, noodles, sauce, cashew cream, noodles, sauce daiya cheese.
Cook in a 350 degree oven uncovered for 40-50 minutes or until noodles are cooked through.
Let your lasagna sit out of the oven for 5 minutes before serving.

Pizza Crust (Gluten Free/ Yeast Free)

Do you miss pizza? I did… ¬†I still can’t order it when I am out. Even if they have a gluten free crust, it would still have yeast and dairy that would make me so ill.

Believe me. Last year I decided that I would try one bite of my husbands regular pizza. I chewed that one bite ever so slowly,I thinking that everything would be fine… Was I wrong. I had such a bad asthma attack that I was sick for three days.

Now I just make many different versions of my own crusts. This is the most basic one:

Pizza Crust (Gluten Free/ Refined Sugar Free/ Yeast Free)

1 1/2 c. gluten free flour mix                                      2 eggs
3 tsp. baking powder                                                 1/3 c. olive oil
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum                                                 1/2 c. water
1/2 tsp. herbed sea salt
1 Tbsp. palm sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl; wet in another; then add wet into dry. Mix.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Put a couple of tablespoons worth of dough onto paper, and spread around to make a flat six inch(or so) pizza crust. Makes about six of them.

Food 006

Put back into the oven until cheese melts. I usually freeze the extra ones.
