Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust




  • 1 cup riced, then cooked cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp italian seasonings
  • 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (for topping)
  • pizza sauce & additional toppings of your choice



1. To rice the cauliflower, cut florets into chunks and pulse in a food processor until you see rice-like bits. You could also use a cheese grater to produce the tiny pieces. Do not over process, you don't want mush.

2. Microwave the riced cauliflower in a bowl for 5-8 minutes depending on your microwave. No need to add water. After microwaving, transfer riced cauliflower to a fine mesh strainer and drain completely, gently pressing out excess water. Or throw it in the salad spinner and spin the water out!Once drained, transfer riced cauliflower to a clean dish towel and wrap the sides around the cauliflower while gently pressing out excess water. This drying process is important!

3. One large head of cauliflower will yield about 3 cups of riced cauliflower. Use it to make more pizzas immediately, or store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup riced, cooked cauliflower, 1 egg and your parmesan cheese. Next, add Italian seasonings, crushed garlic and salt. Making sure everything is well mixed, place your "dough" on the cookie sheet and pat out a 9" round. Be sure not to press it too thin as it's easy to create holes.

5. Bake your dough at 450 degrees for 15-25 minutes.

6. Remove from oven. Add sauce, mozzarella cheese, and your favorite pre-cooked toppings to your pizza. Place pizza under broiler just until cheese is melted, be sure to keep an eye on it! I hope you enjoy this wonderful cauliflower pizza crust recipe!

Hamburger Stew Recipe (no tomato option)

Hamburger Stew Recipe (no tomato option)

Hamburger Stew Recipe (no tomato option)


Have an allergy to 🍅 tomatoes or an auto immune disorder? Tomatoes are a night shade vegetable and some people can’t have it. I have found it’s easy to substitute tomatoes with tomatillos or green chilies in Mexican style dishes. It’s easy to use puréed beets (golden or red) to add to recipes like soup and stew in place of canned tomatoes.



2 Tbsp olive oil

1 lb Holy Cow hamburger meat 

6 cloves garlic, diced

1 medium onion, chopped

1 large green bell pepper, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

2 carrots, peeled and chopped (or use shredded)

1 cup frozen peas

2 russet potatoes, chopped (I used purple)

1  (14 Oz can diced tomatoes)

1 large can tomato sauce

*4 cups puréed golden beets (If doing no tomato, instead of diced tomatoes and tomato sauce use 4 cups puréed golden beets- like to keep this frozen and on hand for thickening soups)

32 Oz box chicken or veggie stock

Thyme, garlic, salt, & pepper to taste

(Any other veggies you have frozen and on hand? Just throw them in 😉I added some okra to this)


Start off with a nice stock pot add the oil then onions, garlic, bell pepper, & celery. Add hamburger meat and brown. Then add carrots, potatoes, frozen peas, tomatoes or beets, and chicken or veggie stock. Cool until meat is cooked thru and potatoes are done. Season to taste and serve with your favorite cornbread or crusty bread.

Kale (or spinach)  Ricotta Chicken

Kale (or spinach) Ricotta Chicken

Kale (or spinach)  Ricotta Chicken

  • 1 ½ lb chicken breast
  • 1 c ricotta cheese
  • 1 c fresh chopped spinach (or kale)
  • ½ c parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 ½ c marinara sauce (I used pre-made red beet marinara sauce)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (separated)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cracked pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • extra parmesan for topping


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • In a bowl, mix together the ricotta, parmesan, spinach or kale, one garlic clove, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper until fully combined.
  • Spray the bottom of a 9x13 pan, or large baking dish with oil. Line the chicken breasts in the pan and evenly season with salt, pepper and 2 of the garlic cloves. Spread the ricotta and spinach mixture over the top of the chicken breasts evenly. Cover the chicken completely with the marinara.
  • Bake for about 18-22* minutes or until the thickest section of the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. (For thicker chicken breasts, this could take about 5 minutes longer if not more.) In the last several minutes, add shredded parmesan on top of the chicken and continue baking to melt. If the chicken is thick, it may take longer. Just keep an eye on it.
  • Allow chicken to rest about 5 minutes before serving. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Leftovers of this chicken are even better!
