Food To Be Fit: Cauliflower Pizza Margherita

January 07, 2015 2 min read

Everyone should try this recipe at least once. I will give this advice though - make sure you have a big enough food processor...it is a huge annoyance to have to put 5-7 batches of cauliflower florets in a small food processor (I've got experience with that). This is a lot of work for something small, but it sure is pretty to look at and you will feel proud knowing that you've made something so delicious (and healthy!). This would be beautiful as an appetizer for a dinner party, or something healthy to snack on while vegging out on the couch on Saturday night. Enjoy this one, she's a haard-earned beauty.

Ingredients:DSC_0421

  • 1 small-medium head of cauliflower
  • pinch of sea salt
  • ½ tsp dried basil (crush with mortar & pestle)
  • ½ tsp dried oregano (crush with mortar & pestle)
  • fresh basil, shredded
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup parmesean cheeseDSC_0426
  • ¼ cup light shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • Organic Pizza Sauce (or you can make your own)
 

Instructions:

  1. Cut off the florets from a small head of cauliflower. Wash and thoroughly dry.DSC_0428
  2. Pulse in a food processor until the cauliflower looks snow-like.
  3. Place cauliflower snow in a microwave-safe dish and microwave for 4 minutes.
  4. Pour cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and let cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Once the cauliflower is cool enough to touch, wrap it up using the dishtowel and wring it out (don't be gentle, you will wring out a lot of water - the more the better). This will help create a chewy, crunchy crust instead of a watery, crumbly, mess. DSC_0429
  6. Place cauliflower in a bowl (you should have 2-3 cups) and add ¼ cup parmesan cheese, a pinch of sea salt, the crushed basil and oregano, and the egg. Combine using your hands.
  7. Place a large baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 450 F. Place a large piece of parchment paper on the counter and drizzle with olive oil to create a non-stick surface.
  8. Use your hands to form the dough into a round crush on your oiled parchment paper.DSC_0433 Place plastic wrap on top and using a large cutting board, push down to create a perfect circular crust.
  9. Pat it down thoroughly until it is tightly formed together. You want it about ¼-1/2-inch thick, and roughly 10-12 inches round.
  10. Slide your dough onto your baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until it starts to turn golden, but not burnt. Remove from the oven, carefully flip, and bake for 10 more minutes.
  11. Add pizza sauce, light mozzarella cheese, red pepper flakes, and fresh basil. Slide the parchment paper back into the oven and cook DSC_0434for 5-8 minutes, until the cheese is melted, bubbly and golden brown.
  12. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool for 2 minutes. Using a pizza cutter, slice and serve, garnished with some more fresh basil.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
