From Rock Star Anand Bhatt comes this super healthy take on an old favorite – pizza! This rocker shows us all how to cut calories without compromising taste or flavor! A BIG thanks to Anand for sharing one of his delicious recipes with Tiny Green Mom! Stay tuned for Anand’s cookbook, Rock Star Recipes, due out this Fall!
By Anand Bhatt
1 standard size bag of Steamable Microwave Cauliflower
1 Bottle of Organic Spaghetti Sauce (check the label, make sure it’s not laden with corn syrup, sugar, or anything nasty)
1 tsp of oregano
1/2 cup of chopped basil (or a tablespoon of dried)
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 Bag of Fat Free Shredded Mozzarella
1 large bowl
1 Pie Tin lightly greased with olive oil
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Follow the instructions on the cauliflower bag and steam them. When done, let cool enough for you to be able to handle it and empty the bag into the blender. Then, grind up the cauliflower until it looks all chopped up and somewhat like rice. Transfer to a large bowl.
Crack the egg into it with a cup of fat free mozzarella (two fistfuls for us guys). Mix it up with your hands, press into a pie tin, and bake at 450 for about 15 min.
Meanwhile, mix the sauce and spices in a separate bowl.
Pull it out of the oven & top with the sauce. Then, top with more cheese and any toppings you like (I used spinach, yellow, red & green peppers, and onions).
Broil it until it’s brown and pizza-looking.
It’s satisfies the hardest pizza craving, and is a great way to get a filling meal that’s about 600 calories for the whole thing!
Additionally, if you have access to an Indian or Mexican store you can get soy crumbles that you soak before cooking that make a great ground sausage substitute as a topping.
