Garlic Cauliflower Rice and Pizza

Garlic Cauliflower 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.
