Healthy Cooking: Gluten Free Cauliflower Crust Pizza

This week we were excited to see many of our regular cooks, and welcome some new faces to our Wednesday kitchen program. Today we go gluten free, but acknowledge that this cauliflower crust is delicious in it’s own right.

Get your aprons on, clear the counter and let’s begin!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (which is compostable).

Thaw

  • 1 bag frozen riced cauliflower

grab a bowl and mix in the following ingredients:
(we like to use our hands for this part)

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten

Once you’ve combined all your ingredients, it’s time to shape it into a crust! Begin to press your mixed ingredients onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Ding! Ding! It’s time to pull out your sheet and (now partially baked) crust.
Here’s where YOU can get creative! Add your favorite toppings to your cauliflower crust and continue to bake for an additional 10 minutes. *We whipped up a quick basil sauce for our pizza topping by combining basil leaves, oil, salt, and parmesan in a food processor. *

After the 10 minutes, pull out your tasty gluten free and healthy cauliflower pizza to serve! Share your creation on Facebook and Instagram using #CookingByKidsforKids.

Happy cooking and see you in the kitchen!
