Yes, yes. I made this over a week ago and I'm just now posting it. I also have a Wordpress blog that I'm trying to get going (and sucking at it in case you were wondering) but I am having technical difficulties because I keep changing the password and then forgetting it. Frustrating. Also frustrating? It's not nearly as easy to upload a bunch of pictures and then tell a story like I'm about to do here. So while this is an entry meant to be on my health and fitness blog, it's on this one instead. Because sometimes that's just how things work out.
SO. Cauliflower pizza. It's yummy stuff. I was not a believer either until I tried it. So far I've made it 3 times and the third time was BY FAR the best effort. For my next attempt I'm going to put the crust in a skillet to get it evenly browned first instead of double baking it. I think that fake frying it will help it hold together better.
Here's how this batch of magic happened.
I cut up a head of cauliflower and steamed it in a microwave safe bowl (because the entire point of eating healthier is to not put unwanted things into your body and that includes substances from non-microwave safe dishes).

After steaming the cauliflower, I mashed it up, seasoned it with pepper, garlic, and italian seasoning. I then added flaxseed meal that I'd mixed with water and allowed to set up.

I spread the pureed tomatoes out on the crusts (which actually seemed to make them soggy - hence the idea about pan frying them next time), then topped it with diced onion, green pepper, mushrooms, sliced roma tomatoes, and low fat Sargento Mexican cheese blend.
I popped them back in the oven at 375 for about 15 more minutes until the veggies were cooked and the cheese was bubbly.
