Maybe you think I'm an idiot? Well, here's my chance to prove you right. I don't know how many of you have even heard about some of the items I'll review here, but these are my opinions.
I said that I would eat something I've never had, and this certainly qualifies. Ashley found a recipe for cauliflower crust pizza on Pinterest. (Imagine that, right?) But the thing that actually got me interested was that it was mostly healthy. Okay, I can do "healthy" foods, but how the heck can you turn a vegetable into pizza crust? Let me tell you, it's a lot of work.
The fist step after washing was to chop up a head of cauliflower into florets. That part was easy. (Read as: That was the part she let me do.) The next step was supposed to involve a food processor to chop it down into rice-sized bits. Well, you see, Ashley and I don't own one of those. We do happen to have a blender. Oh, and a Magic Bullet... Please take my advice here. USE A FOOD PROCESSOR! The blender just kind of mashed the vegetable up and made it harder to pat dry.
That, we decided was our mistake. I'll save the step-by-step and get to the part you really want to read about. The pizza was actually really good. Now, we didn't go all out and hand make our own sauce, or buy the best pepperoni, however, it is my belief that if we had it would have been even better. The crust was tasty. It was well seasoned and just a little crispy. We used an Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, finely shredded mozzarella, and just a pad of butter. (You could probably season it however you'd like.) It didn't quite have the right consistency, and you couldn't pick it up without it falling apart. That said, I barely noticed I was eating cauliflower except for the chunks I found from our dismal chopping job.
I'm sorry, but there isn't much else to tell about it. We are going to attempt it again in the future, because we agreed that it was just filling enough for the two of us. Pair that with a light salad and we'll have a nice little meal. Go find a recipe and try it yourself, fool!
Coming up: which summer blockbuster movies am I most excited to see?!!
I discovered reading and writing for fun when I was in the 4th grade and I haven't been able to stop. I discovered my musical talent when I was 12 and started a band with my brother and my best friends. I have been on a journey of discovery that has shaped and molded my tastes for music, reading, writing, art, food and extracurricular activities since I was a high school freshman. And I'm not quite finished, so come along.
