Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

Good morning and happy Friday!

For today’s Food Friday post, I’m talking pizza.

I posted this on instagram and the blog yesterday from Wednesday’s dinner…

Gluten Free Cauliflower Crust Pizza      Adapted from How Sweet Eats

With Onions, Peppers, Mushrooms and Basil                  Makes 2 Pizzas

Here are my ingredients. Similar to Jessica’s       (Click How Sweet Eats for directions)

  • 2 heads of cauliflower
  • 2 packs of Sargento Mozzarella Shredded Cheese
  • 1 pack of parmesan shredded cheese
  • Can of marinara (check the ingredients and make sure there isn’t any added sugars or HFC in it)
  • Pre diced purple onion
  • Pre sliced mushrooms
  • Pre diced bell pepper trio
  • Basil, Chopped finely (I used basil from my garden)
  • Italian seasoning
  • Red pepper flakes

– Made one pizza out of one head of cauliflower and another pizza out of the other head of cauliflower. I made identical pizzas though!

– Head over to Jessica’s recipe for the full directions! You can pretty much do whatever you want to it! Bon Appetite!

Breakfast:

Good ole overnight oats!

But I learned something awesome—- if you slice some banana in with the oats overnight, the oats will taste like banana bread! So good!

I also snuck in a handful of Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch (similar to cinnamon toast crunch!!!! Just not as sugary)

Workout:

Warmed up a mile (kinda fast) and then didn’t feel good afterward at all.

After 30 minutes, I decided to tough it out finish what I started…Chest and Triceps had to be worked!

Then after they felt like jelly, I knew I was through! Got in a good sweat sesh even though my calorie wasn’t high or anything. No problemo

Lunch:

Flat out sandwich with chicken breast, lettuce, and laughing cow cheese wedge, some Crunch Master gluten free crackers, and I had muscadines later!

Had an owl visit us by the kitchen window…he saw me!!!

Dinner:

Black beans, rice, 1/3 of a sweet potato, chicken, broccoli…and yesterday was National Cheese Pizza Day…ha ha! #absaremadeinthekitchen y’all!

Questions:

  • Have you tried Cauliflower Crust yet?
  • Do you push through workouts if you don’t feel good or do you take it as a sign to skip?
  • Favorite cereal?

I’ll Take A Tip, Recipe, and Pizza

Hey y’all!

Ugh, sorry I forgot to post yesterday. Didn’t mean for that to happen but it did. Oh well!

I did get in 8 miles of mostly running with some walks here and there and then it was rest time for me. The sun really take its out of me.

Anyway, we got some fun stuff to talk about today!

Would you like a tip?

I love tips…especially when it’s about hair! I discovered this a while ago and wanted to share!

FIT HAIR

So, I don’t know about you, but I some times workout twice a day, which means taking showers twice-three times a day…and my hair can not take that much shampoo no matter how much conditioner I use Laughing out loud

So I got a TIP for YOU! (Specifically talking to girls with medium or long hair)

First thing– Always wash hair with a sulfate and paroben free shampoo! You will notice a big difference in a month. I know I did. Keep reading down below.

Step 1

Rinse and massage hair with only warm water. Try to detangle hair if you can.

Step 2

Don’t use shampoo, just conditioner. Apply conditioner ONLY on the ends of your hair. Rinse.

I’ve been doing this recently and its saving me shampoo, time, and damage to my hair. Try it next time you’re in a hurry after your workout or if you already washed your hair once that same day.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Experiment

I’ve been drooling over Brittany’s cauliflower pizza since she posted it, and decided I’d make it tonight! Tina from Carrots ‘N’ Cake also made the pizza and she said she loved it. So I had to do it!

First, I chopped and pureed the cauliflower in a blender. Then I sautéed the cauliflower.

I did just like the directions said on Brittany’s recipe but the toppings I put were:

  • Broccoli
  • Mushrooms
  • Chopped Bell peppers
  • Chopped onion
  • Feta Cheese
  • Mozzarella
  • Tomato Sauce

I sautéed all the vegetables first while the pizza crust was baking in the oven! Yum!

While that was cooking, I pan-seared a small apple in coconut oil and cinnamon (Idea from Tina) and ate that with some peanut butter. I was starving because I hadn’t had anything since lunch…and it was 5:30 already.

Then I put all the toppings on the pizza, and let that broil for a few minutes.

And this is how it came out:

You like?

I think its a genius idea.

I really recommend this pizza idea to anyone out there! It tastes so delicious and I think it’s well worth the time. Plus, it is always fun trying out a new recipe, right? Even my little sister said it was the best healthy food she’s ever eaten. Laughing out loud

I ate some of the leftover vegetables along with the pizza and had two slices plus half a piece more. Lydia (my sister) and I both did. This pizza tasted just how I thought it would and I’m pretty proud of it. YumSmile

 


This week’s runs have been really good. Wednesday I got in 5 miles plus a little bit of speed work as well and Thursday I got in 6 miles. Today has been a rest day since Ive ran all week and have 9 miles to run tomorrow! Long run Saturday comin’ right up! Whoop, whoop!
