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!

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
