Cauliflower Pizza With Spinach & Goat Cheese


New Years Day has come and gone, and with that comes a whole lot of new resolutions. If you're like me, you made a resolution to eat healthier and get your butt into shape! So, with that resolution, I'll now be bringing you more than just cupcake recipes. Here's to a happy and healthy 2013!

Now, you may be scratching your head. Cauliflower pizza, how does that work? Cauliflower pizza means no flour, no wheat, no gluten, which ultimately means it's healthier for you! This was my first attempt, and it turned out pretty well if you ask me. I'm not a huge fan of cauliflower, but in the name of getting healthy, I figured it was worth a try! The hubby loved it, so, I'll chalk it up as a win.

Pizza "Dough"
2 cups cooked, riced cauliflower
2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 
2 eggs, beaten 
2 tsp dried oregano 
1 tsp crushed garlic 
1 tsp garlic salt 

Toppings
1 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
2 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups spinach
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp herbs de provence
Goat cheese crumbles - as much as you want


Preheat oven to 450 F degrees. Chop the cauliflower florets into chunks and steam them until slightly soft, about 15 minutes. Rice the steamed pieces in a ricer or use a blender. One large Cauliflower should produce 3 cups riced.

To make the "dough", in a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg, and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir. Transfer to the baking stone or sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a large rectangle, making it as thin as possible (Remember, this isn't real pizza dough, so it will be flimsy once baked). I used a baking pan with a Silpat to keep it from sticking.


Bake at 450 F for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.


For the spinach topping, in small sauce pan, cook spinach with 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp minced garlic, and 1 tsp herbs de provence until tender. Set aside.

Once your dough has baked, brush on 1 tbsp of melted butter, then top with mozzarella, spinach, and goat cheese crumbles. Place in oven for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is fully melted.


This recipe makes 4 serving (8 slices total) and is around 415 calories per serving.

  7. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
