This healthy Cauliflower pizza is topped with grilled vegetables and Greek Yogurt pesto for an easy, meatless meal that is low in carbs and high in protein! Grilling the crust keeps it from going soggy!
If you’re like me, you just rolled out of bed and immediately turned on your computer.
Because you are also a person of the computer era and have been told to ALWAYS BE PLUGGED IN. Even when your eyeballs are barely alive yet, so they peer into the bright light, burn, and wish that they could just wither up and die.
That might be dramatic. But it’s probably not.
You get me.
Which means that you also don’t really enjoy Mondays. Like, at all.
You know what though? It’s about to get a whole lot more MOOOOO-velous!
Because it’s the first day of June…which means its June Dairy Month! AKA: grate cheese on ALL the things and eat an extra 4.6 scoops of Greek yogurt for breakfast month!
All in the name of getting the recommended 3 servings of dairy per day amIright? Especially since most of us don’t get enough.
PLUS, one serving of milk, cheese or yogurt packs a whopping 8g of protein. So, maybe we should round that 4.6 scoops up to a WHOLE 5 guys.
Your breakfast is being eaten ON THE EDGE.
Do you remember the when I went to Ohio (where they produce 630 MILLION gallons of milk! Hello smoothie-fest!) with The American Dairy Association Mideast and got to meet some amazing dairy families, tour their farms, milk cows and even FEED A BABY COW? <– life highlight RIGHT thur.
Today, a bunch of fabity-fab bloggers are joining together to helping ring in June Dairy Month and celebrate America’s dairy farming families.
I might have made that up. But, it’s DA TRUF.
Cauliflower crust. It’s not any new and dang-fangled shenanigans. You’ve heard about it. Maybe you’ve even munched on it already. But we’ve been too busy cauliflower rice-ing it up here on FFF that we hadn’t eaten it yet.
But, YOU. GUY. SO WORTH THE WAIT.
If you’ve tried making crust out of fresh vegetable-y goodness and been, like, U-L-T-R-A disappointed when it was soggy, mooshy and reminded you of, uhmmm, NOT pizza, I am about to tell you the secretz to making your crust crispy-crunchy PERFECT.
- SQQUUUEEZE the water out of the cauliflower. Then squeeze it more. Call it your workout for the day, and then you can eat an extra slice. Or 3.
- Cover the baked crust with cheese and broil it to create a seal between the crust and the sauce. I actually learned of this trick somewhere on the interwebz ages ago. I do not remember where. To that person: YOU ARE BRILLIANT.
- Make them SMALL. This way your pizza isn’t going to get a case of the bendies when you pick it up, and leave you with a lap full of toppings. NO FUN.
- Put it on the grill. Crunchy bottoms. Smokey-grilly summer flavor. NUM <3<3<3
After you’ve amazed yourself with your crust-making abilities, comes the EASIEST EVUH Greek yogurt pesto, that you spread on EVERYTHING…err…the pizza.
But, you could spread it on e’rythang. More protein for YOU.
Top it off with some extra grilled vegetables because crust made of veggies + veggies on top = LOOK AT YOU BEING SO HEALTHY. With PIZZA.
Don’t forget the extra Parmesan cheese for added D-LISH AND the necessary ooey-gooey-melty factor.
Oh hey good 4 you, nutrient-packed ‘za that doesn’t even need to wait for the weekend.
I kinda like you a lot.
