This is my third go around with Cauliflower pizza crust and each time I think I’ve gotten better. This time was definitely the best. Two years ago I never ate cauliflower anything! Now when I stop to think… I eat SO much cauliflower now. It’s taken the place of rice for me and I love it.
This time I wanted to make my own pizza sauce. I am all about making my own sauces lately. I have found the magic of dates, coconut aminos, balsamic vinegar, and coconut milk. I used Kitchn’s recipe for homemade pizza sauce, however I substituted dates for the sugar. This sauce tasted phenomenal.
First I cooked my cauli crust for about 20 mins.. flipping 10 minutes in. While my crust was cooking I chopped all my veggies… so much chopping 🔪. Peppers, zucchini, onions, & broccoli. This time around I sautéed & seasoned my veggies just a bit- made all the difference!
Once all veggies were sautéed and ready I scooped three spoonfuls of sauce onto the crust and spread it out. Then I put my veggies on.. I like to be artistic with it so I put my veggies on in sections however there is nothing wrong with mixing them together and sprinkling them on. I also added some pickled onions!! I seasoned my veggies a little bit more and then threw my pizza back into the oven to broil for about 5 minutes.
Once ready, I noticed the crust burnt just a little so I made a note for the next pizza to put the sauce all the way to the edges.
For our buffalo chicken pizza I cut up some leftover chicken we had in the fridge. I combined our sautéed broccoli, onions, and chopped up chicken into a bowl with 1/3 cup of franks hot sauce and mixed together. I spread our pizza sauce across the pizza then added the chicken, broccoli, onion mixture on top.
Broiled the pizza for 5 minutes and once ready added our whole30 compliant ranch dressing on top!😋
And voila! These pizza’s were both delicious, easy, mouthwatering. & healthy! The cooking part was only about 30 minutes or so but chopping all the vegetables was a bit time consuming. Always helps when you have a hand to make it go a little faster 😄.
