That Which Drives Us and Gluten Free Pizza Crust

by Joanne on February 8, 2015

On days like today when the snow left from plows form moguls in the roads and the wind is blowing me backwards, when every step forward feels like tremendous effort, I wonder why I’m still running.  I’m no elite athlete.  This isn’t my job.  Is this REALLY what I have to do to stay in shape?! 

When the effort is extreme, I do wonder why I continue to make myself suffer.  The only answer I can come up with is the challenge to be better. Better than I was last year or the year before. Not allowing age to get the better of me.  I keep running, fighting off cold, fighting off fatigue and giving up some little things that, although might be enjoyable and satisfying, might also hinder what I work so hard to achieve. 

“If you’re going through Hell, keep going.”  

Crustless Pizza or Cauliflower Pizza Crust or Gluten Free Pizza.  Call it what you will but enjoy it none the less.

It’s light, tasty and virtually, guilt free.  Eat ALMOST all you want.

  • 1 large head cauliflower, shredded/chopped fine in food processor *You could also add a few carrots to the food processor.

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder

  • 1 TBS Italian seasoning

  • 2 tsp minced garlic

  • salt to taste

  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Sauté cauliflower in a skillet over medium heat for about 6 minutes. Remove to a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.

Spray a foil lined baking sheet with non stick spray.

Spread out the cauliflower mix into desired pizza crust shape (round/rectangular…) and press firmly.

Bake at 400 F. for about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with favorite toppings. Do Not Over load. This will be a tender crust.

Place back in the oven an allow toppings to cook about 10 minutes.
