    I'm a Sucker For Pizza.....
    MegFish3269 posted:
    Pizza obviously is not the healthiest food in the world, but I find its combination of carbs, sause, cheese and toppings to be irresistible. An excellent twist on pizza, which helps curve the craving and reduces caloric intake, is to make a cauliflower crust!

    It sounds crazy, I know... but you simply grate a head of cauliflower, microwave it for 7-10 minutes, add an egg and some parmesan cheese and whala.... pizza crust!

    I've tried this a couple of times and it's seriously delicious! I have found that the crust doesn't really harden when I've made it though and the pizza is sometimes soggier than I'd like it to be. Any suggestions on baking time or anything else I can do?
    rohvannyn replied to atti_editor's response:
    Maybe higher heat, and use as thin a pan as you can find? Short cooking time high heat, might equal a slightly less soggy crust? I honestly can't imagine anything made with cauliflower being anything but soggy.

    Another pizza crust substitute is portabello mushroom caps. You can fill them with pizza fillings and then bake them.
