summer pizza SFG Diary

Dear Diary,

Ya’ll know that I’m obsessed with the Cauliflower Pizza–we’ve shared the recipe here and on… but I’ve decided to switch up the dish a little with some summer fresh favorites!  This All Veggie Pizza elevates the original, thanks to my favorite homemade pesto sauce, and some Mediterranean flavors.

It was quite a lazy weekend, but I made sure to get plenty of sun by the pool and even found the time (while I was couch-sitting) to enjoy a bike ride (how’s that for lazy!)  But after the bike ride, I indulged in 2 bagels (packed with everything), and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s all by myself, thank you very much.  No shame in my game… but this morning, I’ll admit that I felt slightly sluggish.  I knew that a comfort worthy, but vitamin-rich meal was the ticket to feeling like myself again.  And while this dish does take a little prep time– I love spending time in the kitchen.  So when you need a veggie kick-  Try it for yourself! ;)

For the Crust:

  • combine in a processor a head of cauliflower (chopped and steamed), with 2 large scoops of greek yogurt, salt/pepper and 1 egg)
  • when smooth– pour on a baking sheet, and create a pizza pie shape
  • then place in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes

For the sauce and toppings:

in a food processor create pesto: 3 garlic cloves, salt and pepper, handful of basil, handful of spinach, 1/3 cup of pine nuts, & olive oil until smooth

when the crust is starting to form into a crust, pour the sauce on top, place sliced grape tomatoes, halved greek olives, handful of red onion, and a few pine nuts

BROIL until crispy and then add arugula on top!
