Mexican Pizza Saga

Mexican PizzaLet me start off by saying this pizza was AMAZING!!  However, it was complicated to make.

I saw this recipe on Heidi Powell’s blog.  She said in Bootcamp for Extreme Weight Loss the contestants take turns cooking for each other.  Anschutz works with the contestants in order to help them make their favorite foods healthier.  Of course, it has to taste good as well.  I really enjoy Mexican food, and I look for any and every opportunity to make it, especially when it’s healthy.  This also had a cauliflower crust, which has intrigued me for a while.

The cauliflower crust was pretty awesome!  It was tricky to make, in some part because I don’t eat a lot of cauliflower, therefore I don’t work with cauliflower, and in part because I had some ingredient mishaps.  First, I had to process two heads of cauliflower.  This took six times in the food processor, because I have a smaller food processer.  It was also a little messy when I was cutting the florets off of the head of cauliflower, and I ended up with cauliflower with everywhere.  Then, you have to steam the cauliflower in the microwave, which also took me six rounds because I don’t have a large, microwavable bowl.  Next, you have to squeeze the moisture out of the cauliflower.  Everything was in the bowl, I went to add the eggs, and all of my eggs were frozen.  So, everything had to go in the refrigerator.

The next day, everything went much smoother and I was able to complete everything.  The crust was a little soft, but I think it’s because extra moisture was added when I had to put the cauliflower mixture in the refrigerator.  I also forgot to add the spices.  That being said, this is one of my MOST FAVORITE things I have ever made.  It was SO GOOD.  I used spinach, red/orange/yellow bell peppers, and ground turkey.  This is MOST DEFINATELY something I will be making again and again.  And, it’s DEFINATELY something you should try.  You won’t regret it.
