Thai Chicken Pizza with Cauliflower Crust

I am always in the mood to try new things, just having all the ingredients is another story. Well I have been eye balling this recipe that I found for a while and I decided that today would be the day that I would make it and make the hubby and kids their pizzas. 

As always, I enjoy getting rough ideas from someone else’s ideas because my mind starts thinking of different ways to create something healthier and tasty at the same time. 

Cauliflower Crust:

Ingredients

Head of cauliflower 

8 ounce ( 1 cup ) mozzarella cheese 

2 egg whites 

basil 

oregano 

garlic 

Instructions:

Per heat oven to 450. Cut cauliflower into small enough pieces to go into the food processor and pulse until cauliflowers looks like rice. Once done add to a pan and cook on medium until it’s whiter but be careful not to burn it. In the mean time add the eggs, cheese, herbs and garlic to the food processor and blend well. Once that is blended well add in the cauliflower and blend altogether. Scarp the sides a time or two and blend again. Once blended on a cookie sheet lay foil down and stray with none stick spray and pour dough onto pan and lay either in a square or round form pending on how you like your pizza and bake for 20-30 minutes. I did 20 minutes and pulled it out so that I could put the sauce and veggies and chicken on and put back in the oven. That’s all up to you. 

Pizza and Sauce:

Ingredients: 

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips ( I cooked them in garlic and water for awhile to get them nice and tender) 

2 tsp sriracha 

2 tbls olive oil 

4-6 garlic cloves 

1 tsp red pepper flakes 

ITEMS above will be put into a seal-able bowl with the chicken and to marinate for an hour or more) 

1 medium broccoli head ( cut into small pcs) 

1 medium red bell pepper cut into strips 

9 green onion ( I love green onion ) 

8 ounces or less of fresh mushrooms

8-10 fresh spinach leaves

1/2 cup mozzarella 

Sauce: 

2 Tbls olive oil 

2 Tbls natural peanut butter 

2 tsp low sodium soy sauce 

2-4 drops of chili oil 

1 tsp crushed red peppers 

2-3 green onion 

Mix all ingredients together and then spread all over the cauliflower crust then add the chicken and then the veggies and sprinkle the cheese ans bake until cheese has melted or longer.  It’s all up to you. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Homemade Fennal Italian Sausage and Vegatable Pizza

I am not a huge pizza fan because two things. Too much pizza sauce and so greasy. Even though I tell them lite sauce it’s not lite sauce and it’s just way to greasy. 

So I decided that I would make the kids their pepporoni pizza, hubby his pizza with pepperoni, mild peppers and mushrooms and I wanted something unique but also healthy as you can get with pizza. 

 

Ingredients: 

half a green pepper 

half a onion

half bottle of capers 

handful of mild peppers 

8 ounces of sliced mushrooms 

4-6 slices of low sodium deli ham 

1 cup pizza sauce ( I like mine with light sauce )

2-3 Fennel Italian Sausage ( peeled the skin off ) 

2-3 pcs of fresh Kale leaves

5-6 pcs of fresh Spinach leaves 

2-3 tsp crushed red peppers 

8 ouns mozzarella cheese 

2 pkgs pizza dough ( I would have used whole wheat but where I went didn’t have it) 

 

Instructions: 

Preheat the oven to 450. In the meantime prepare pizza dough if you didn’t buy the pre made pizza crust. Cook per instructions. Once the crust is ready add on the toppings the way you prefer and over in cheese and bake for 20 minutes or longer pending if you want it crisper.  Let cool and enjoy. 

I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.
