Healthy Vegetarian Pizza with Cauliflower Crust
Ingredients: 1/4 Zucchini, 1/4 Red Bell Pepper, 1/4 Yellow Bell Pepper, 1 Table Spoon Olive Oil, 1/4 cup Pizza Sauce (your choice of brand), 1/4-1/3 cup of Mozzarella Cheese, a dash of Garlic Salt and 1 Trader Joes Caulifower Pizza Crust.
Cooking the Pizza Crust: Preheat oven to 450. Remove all packaging from the pizza crust and place on a cooking sheet. Cook each side for 10-12 minutes. Remove crust and add the pre-prepared toppings.
Prepping the Vegetable Toppings: Thinly slice zucchini, red bell pepper and yellow bell pepper while pizza crust is cooking.
Preparing the Cheese: Only use freshly grated cheese. Please do not use pregrated cheese. Why doesn’t pregrated cheese get moldy?
Add Sauce and Toppings to Pizza Crust: Pour or spoon approx 1/4 cup of pizza sauce on to center of crust. With a wooden spoon spread sauce, circularly and evenly towards the edgers. Leave approx 1/2 inch (20mm) of exposed crust around perimeter.
Cheesing the Pizza: Spread the freshly grated cheese evenly over the sauced part of the pizza. You should be able to see a little color of the sauce through the cheese.
Adding Vegetable Toppings to the Pizza: Spread the zucchini in an evenly spaced pattern over the cheesed part of the pizza. Add a three or four rings of each of the red and yellow bell peppers over the zucchini slices.
Final Touches: Do a quick, very light sprinkle of garlic salt over the cheesed part of the pizza. Finally, lightly drizzle olive oil around perimeter of exposed crust and a couple drops on each of the zucchini slices.
Final stage of cooking: Turn the oven on low broil and cook the thinly sliced vegetables until they reach the desired tenderness without over cooking the exposed outer edge of crust approx 2-7 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a cutting board and divide into six even slices. Dig in and enjoy!
