Garlic Cauliflower Rice and Pizza
I found this recipe on line and it looked interesting.
I will give you the modified recipe because there was too, too much garlic and too much broth but I did salvage it and turned it into a great vegetable dish and delicious pizza.
One large head of cauliflower
4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups cooked rice
8 ounces of mozzarella, provolone and cheddar mixture
Two tablespoons butter
Three cloves of minced garlic
One medium diced onion
Steam the cauliflower in the broth till it is soft about 15 minutes
Add the salt
Drain the cauliflower and blend till smooth
Use the broth to smooth it out.
Add the salt
Melt the butter and cook the onion and garlic till soft
Add to the cauliflower and add the rice.
Mix everything together including the cheese and mix till well incorporated.
This can be served as is and it is delicious but I used the leftovers as a base on pizza .OMG it is good.
One pound of pizza dough
Crisco for the bottom of the pan
Cauliflower rice mixture
Leftover broccoli rabe about 1 1/2 cups
Leftover eggplant about one cup
Provolone and muenster cheese for the top
Spread the dough out onto a greased pizza pan
Add a 1/4 inch layer of the cauliflower or more on the pizza dough
Add the leftover broccoli rabe on one side of the pizza and the eggplant on the other side
Top with the cheese
Bake in a preheated 475 degree oven on the bottom shelf for 15 minutes or until the bottom crust is brown.
This is such a great way to use up any kind of leftovers especially vegetables but it also would be good with leftover sausage or chicken.
