Boyfriend-Approved Cauliflower Crust Pizza

IMG_2400

I have absolutely nothing against Paula Deen. However, I was skeptical when I found this recipe. A Paula Deen recipe with no…*gulp*…butter?? Healthy, even? It’s true. And I have to tell you…this Cauliflower Crust Pizza is the chiz (for lack of a better adjective). It’s easy to make, too. Also, I’d totally promote it as an arm workout, if you switch arms halfway through grating the cauliflower.

Anyway, just try it when you get a chance. It won’t disappoint.

Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
2 1/2 cups grated cauliflower (approx. half a large head)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Pizza sauce of your choice
More cheese and your favorite pizza toppings (I like black olives, peppers, mushrooms, and spinach)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a pizza pan with parchment paper.

Grate the cauliflower with a box grater until you have 2 1/2 cups. Place in large bowl and microwave for 7-8 minutes. Remove and let cool.

Once cool, mix in the beaten egg, mozzarella, Parmesan, and salt and pepper. Once combined, press into a pizza pan. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.

Top the pizza with sauce and your favorite toppings. Bake in the oven for another 10 minutes or so, until bubbly and beautiful. Enjoy!

What do you get when you combine coffee, cozy sweatpants, and a warm baked good? HEAVEN.

These guys came out dense, moist, satisfying, and yummy.

You’ll need:
-2 ripe bananas
-1 cup plain Greek yogurt (Fage is my fave!!)
-2 1/2 cups uncooked oats (I used quick oats)
-2 eggs
-3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-chocolate chips for the top (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place muffin liners in a muffin pan (if you don’t have them, spray muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray). Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 of the way with batter (I like to use an ice cream scoop to be consistent). Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on the top of each muffin if you’d like. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool slightly and enjoy!
