All this came down too starting to introduce your family to "Meatless" dishes as much as you can. I'm not one too to promote it, but giving a go would not be bad at all!
I had to think of a favorite dish that does not involve any meat but yet satisfying at the end, so here's my first Meatless dish.
Give this a try, I can tell you, your picky eater at home will not even notice the "dough" which is the Cauliflower!
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 large head), I doubled mine.
1 1/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
Kosher Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1/4 cup Pizza Sauce (you can use any favorite brand of yours)
3 cloves garlic, crushed ( I added more than 2 cloves as I love garlic, you can lessen the amount if you want too)
Fresh basil leaves, this is optional (I added them anyways, as it just completes the Pizza flavor)
1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and then preheat oven to 425 F.
2. Grate the cauliflower using a box grater until you have 2 cups of cauliflower crumbles. *Use the big side of the grater* . Next, place in a large bowl and microwave for about 7-8 minutes, or until soft. Remove from the microwave and let it cool.
3. Mix the one cup of mozzarella, egg, parmesan cheese and salt & pepper. Once combined, pat into a baking pan that's 13 x 9 (this is what I used) OR if you and to actually make it look like a Pizza shape, pat it into a 10-inch round on the prepared pizza pan.
Spray very lightly with nonstick spray and then bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Remove from oven, then top with Pizza sauce, 1/4 cup mozzarella, garlic, grape tomatoes & red pepper flakes. Return the whole pan in the oven until the cheese is melted & bubbly, like for another 10 minutes.
Top with basil before serving.
I actually added the basil on the pizza and baked it, it turned out just fine and little welted
I wish I kept the "crust" in the oven just a tad longer so it will be a little crispier.
See how pretty it looks! Loving the beautiful colors. Hey, color is appealing to the eyes which makes the dish even tastier lol ;) Hope you try it one day.
