Pizza Crust It's Paleo But Hey I'm Game
0

17 posts in this topic

I seen it on youtube I tried it and it's not bad at all 

 

2 cups shredded Cauliflower 

2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese 

2 eggs 

Spices of choice

 

Mix it together with a fork really good the egg is the binder so mix it well 

Put some parchment paper on a cookie sheet , I wondered why but I think because this has alot of moisture and the paper kinda soaks it up. 

 flatten the mixture out and try and shape it like a pizza , keep it thin but no holes as thin as you can get it. I did it with my clean hands

Cook it in the oven at  450º for 15 mins. Till it turns a golden brown

Take it out and put your toppings on it. I used Tomato sauce, cheese , mushrooms , Tomatoes and Pepperoni <- pepperoni big mistake on my part!  

Cook it another 10 mins till the cheese is melted ... 

It wasn't real crunchy but it was very good tasting! I think you can omit the cheese and make wraps in a frying pan with this! 

 

I kinda cooked mine too long the 1st time. I thought I'd let it rest in the oven, but forgot to turn it off , it was a lil darker than I wanted , But it was good!

Your welcome! I'd set it on a paper towel to absorb some of the moisture. I seen someone making this and they squeezed the moisture out of the Cali. first. I can see why now. It's good, don't get me wrong it doesn't taste like egg or Cali. it's good but not perfect! :) I

d do it again! I like stuff that has easy things to put in it. And not 100 different items.

Feels like Christmas today!

 

Completely forgot about cauli-crust -- partially put off because I had removed cheese.  Have not reacted to the non-aged cheeses that I've tried the past few weeks so I went and got fresh mozerella...

 

Pizza is in the oven -- even if it doesn't taste great -- it has been a very good day -- can't wait to taste!!!

Yummy!

I think I'll try to get more moisture out next time...still had quite a bit even after squeezing the cauliflower and blotting the crust just before it went in the oven -- but overall - wonderful treat :)

 

I use a lot of grated cauliflower for "rice" and fried "rice" -- so I am going to grate a few extra heads while the food processor is out and try to freeze individual pizza crust and rice grated cauliflower.  Hoping this makes both a bit easier.

I have tried the cauliflower crust before and I really liked it.  Definitely squeeze the moisture out after grating it.  But pretty good tasting.  It sticks to stuff so that is probably what the parchment is for.

I will have to try cauliflower as a crust,, very interesting and thanks for sharing!

 

If it is similar to the shredded vegetable hashbrowns that I make,,,, you have to get the extra moisture out of the mix.  I use a  potato ricer to do this.  I bake the vegetables so they are partially cooked then I bag them and freeze.. I took a bag out earler and once it thaws I will use the ricer to get the water out.  I was not sure if I should have removed the moisture before freezing or after... any thoughts?

I used a teatowel/cheesecloth to squeeze out as much moisture as possible from my grated cauliflower -- thinking I may need to do again when I defrost each packet for pizza -- making cauli "rice" won't have the same issue.

Yea it did have a lil moisture but It's the best I have tried as of yet! I think you can leave the cheese out really! And just do the Cali and eggs if your Lactose intolerant. I bought some weird cheese that didn't have lactose! But the darn pepperoni did have some corn in it! Didn't affect me too bad! It's been the best since I have started this crazy Gluten free , Corn free lifestyle!

That looks great! What a weird coincidence...I was talking to my boyfriend about going paleo just today, and I asked him if he'd eat the stuff I'd cook, and he brought up how there probably wouldn't be paleo pizza (he loves his pizza) :P 

 

This sounds fairly easy and the pizza looks really good, I'll be trying this at some point!

Have not made this since I posted it. It is so simple! Why have I not made it again?? I think using a tea towel is a great idea to get the moisture out. Hmm I have some cauliflower in the fridge :)

I have a paleo cook book! It has some great recipes some some of them call for weird stuff that I'd never heard of or cannot get around here. Anyhoo if you want something just google a recipe. I am not 100% Paleo but it's hard to put in gluten-free and Corn free recipes on the net ,  it picks up corn and the recipes are never corn free. So I use paleo and it's grain free :) And if you use "easy" then bam got your self a nice recipe :)

1 egg and any young cheese?? So 1 egg and cream cheese? You mix the cream cheese with the egg and cook it up? Sounds delish! I must try! Thanks!

    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
