Flourless Cauliflower Thin Crust Sheet Pizza

With delicious crust, there will be a delicious meal. This flourless crust is delicious, crispy, and you can add whatever toppings you want.

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 cups steamed cauliflower, riced and drained and at room temperature (To rice my cauliflower, I steamed it and popped it into a blender and blended for 2 second intervals, until the cauliflower was a ricelike consistency and drained in a cheesecloth or paper towel until all the water absorbed through steaming is squeezed out. This is especially important for a crispy crust that doesn’t fall apart when you try to slice the pizza)

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast

Pesto, optional

Tomato sauce, homemade or canned (just a warning that the non-homemade variety uses a lot of sugar as a preservative and making your own homemade tomato sauce is a better route if you want to limit processed foods in your home)

Toppings, as desired, e.g. mushrooms, peppers, pepperoni, tofu, low fat cheese, ricotta, basil, roasted tomatoes

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the riced cauliflower with the eggs and parmesan cheese until you have a uniform mixture. Top with salt or pepper as desired, but keep in mind the parmesan or nutritional yeast adds a lot of salt. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up or spray/grease your pan well with coconut oil spray or olive oil. Pour your crust mixture in a thin layer onto baking sheet. Spread out as evenly as you can. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until the eggs and cauliflower and cheese have solidified. Top with desired toppings/sauces/cheeses and bake for another 10-15 minutes.

Avocado Toast with Poached Egg

I am obsessed with avocados. I love that they are so good for you and so delicious at the same time! They are deliciously indulgent and did you know you can add them to dessert recipes in place of butter? I still have not tried this yet but I am eager to!
Here are some awesome things to know about avocados (I know I am such a dork about this kind of thing but nutrition is fascinating)

Avocados have more potassium than bananas and it is high in lutein which is great for your eyes.

Good source of vitamin K!

They are high in fiber!
Here is a great breakfast or lunch idea that is simple to do and is heart healthy for you!

Ingredients

1 slice of whole wheat bread, toasted (I used Arnold’s)

1 egg

1 capful of apple cider vinegar

3 cups water

1/4 avocado

lemon juice from 1/2 lemon

lemon zest

1/8 cup diced tomatoes

Pink Himalayan salt

Freshly cracked black pepper

Directions

Boil the 3 cups of water and add the capful of apple cider vinegar to keep the egg together when you poach it. Crack the egg into a small glass and stir the almost boiling water in a clockwise direction. Pour the egg from the glass into the water and use a spoon to fold the egg white on top of the yolk to keep it together. Leave in the water to simmer for two to four minutes depending on how you like your yolk cooked. I like mine runny! Take the egg out and put on a place, wipe lightly with a paper towel.

Toast the whole wheat bread. While the bread is in the toaster, mash the avocado with the salt, pepper, tomatoes, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Spread on to the toasted bread and put the poached egg on top!

Healthy dishes to you and yours!
