Mason is a pretty good eater for most things but when it comes to veggies it's another story! I'm always searching for ideas to make him eat some and it's soooo hard! I used to make them in puree and mix them with tomato sauce with pasta but this trick is way to easy and he always finds out and refuses to eat them. After trying many different things, I came across this pizza at a restaurant and he loved it. I couldn't believe it, so I decided to try making it at home! I've been making it quite often and so far he always ate it all!!! So I couldn't keep it to myself and had to share because I know I can't be the only one dealing with a picky toddler...
Every kid loves PIZZA! But would your kid eat cauliflower crust pizza? There is only one way to know...
It's easy, kind of fast and super tasty! Here's what you'll need:
- 1 bag or 1 head of cauliflower
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of goat cheese
- 1/2 cup of tomato sauce
- 1 mozzarella ball
Preheat your oven to 380 degrees.
To start, you need to rice the cauliflower. You can buy it riced already but it's never thin enough for me so I do it myself. Blend it very thin so kids can't notice any crumbs.
While you do so, boil 3 cups of water in a pot.
Once your water is boiling pour the riced cauliflower into it.
Let it boil for a good 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring it constantly so it doesn't overflow.
Then drain it. Rince it with cold water! This step is very important so you don't burn yourself after!!!
Once it cools down put the cauliflower in a cloth towel and twist it to remove all the excess water left. There is gonna be a lot and you'll have to do it thoroughly to have your dough dry enough after.
Once it's done put the cauliflower back in a mixing bowl. Add the goat cheese and the egg and mix it all together until you have your dough. It's not gonna be dry but don't worry.
Once it's mixed well, take a baking sheet and cover it with parchment paper.
Spread your dough on it about 1/4 inch thick. If it's too thin it will burn and if it's too thick it will keep too much moisture.
Once it's ready place it in the middle rack of your oven and let it cook for 30 minutes (or until the edges start to get a nice light brown color).
Once your dough is cooked enough add the tomato sauce and mozzarella on top of it and put it back in the oven for 15 minutes (or until everything is melted/cooked enough for you).
I use simple ingredients, but like every pizza you can customize it, and use anything your little one likes!
Let it cool down for 5 minutes, and then let the yumminess begin!
It's not a crust as hard as a real pizza, so if your kids let you cut it into pieces, you should do it. I was able to do it with Mason easily until recently! Now he gets all messy but he still eats it very well.
It's good for kids but very good for parents too! This way everyone gets their serving of veggies in an easy and tasty way!
I hope you and your little ones will like it as much as we do! Please feel free to ask any questions and if you take pics of your kids eating it I would love to see them! Tag us @myloveandbeyond ...
