A fellow Medifaster forwarded me this recipe (see below). I thought a Cauliflower Pizza did not sound too great, but I made it in my toaster oven and it was divine so I thought I'd share it. It had part-skim low moisture cheese in it though, which I haven't had cheese since I started. I take it cheese is allowed on the plan at some point? I've heard a lot of other folks refer to a Cauliflower Pizza Just wondering if I'll catch grief at the Clinic I officially start meeting with them on 8/17 and have to keep a food journal from 8/10-8/17. Really though this was a great recipe and I split it in two meals..

Cauliflower Pizza.

Steam some fresh or frozen cauliflower first, just until tender but not mushy. Drain and let it cool completely. Then use a ricer or a cheese grater to grate the cauliflower to make 1 measuring cup full (not packed)..

Mix 1 c grated cauliflower with 1/4c Eggbeaters, 1/2 tsp oregano and 1/2c shredded low moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese. (You can use reduced fat; I used Tillamook pre-shredded). Spread this mixture on a cookie sheet that has been *generously* sprayed with Pam. Use a spatula and spread/pat it into a circle about 10" or so around. Put this into a preheated 450 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, until it is very nicely browned. The edges should look almost burnt..

Take the crust out of the oven and top with 3T of your favorite no-sugar-added pizza sauce. Then sprinkle with 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella. You can now add your favorite pizza toppings. If you want a Lean & Green meal you should add 1/4 c veggies... I used diced canned tomatoes.

Put back into the oven under the broiler, watching carefully, just until cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and cut into wedges. Enjoy!..

Kurz posted her recipe, with pictures. I finally got to try it last week. It is great! Glad you liked it!..

Some cheeses are OP. Rather than rely on the center, why not print out the plan materials direct from MF? They're all available at Success Tools: Eat Right..

The kinds of cheese that are OP are on the "Meatless Options" list. You need to subtract any cheese you use from your lean for the day...

Comment #2

Oh, also, it seems that most pre-shredded cheeses are not OP because of the extra starch aka carbs they add to keep it from sticking together. Check the ingredients...

Comment #3

I should clarify, I bought a small block of the cheese and grated it myself I always grate my own cheese because it seems to taste a lot better that way. Ha so it's in the meatless option no wonder I didn't see it I'm usually a meat eater!..

Comment #4

It's strange the flyer I get with every Medifast order does NOT list cheese as an option, but the website under "Meatless Options" 1.5 cups of low-fat cheese is listed as an option. Well I printed the webiste information in case I get a hard time at the center :-) I KNOW I'll be making this pizza often!..

Comment #5

Never tried it, but when I get "unlazy" I'm going to make this LOL..

Comment #6

It was a fair amount of work, I'm usually not the most ambitious cook but it was worth it!..

Comment #7

I think it is definitely worth the work, especially if you have a DH who loves to cook and makes it for you! We use Kurz's handy pictorial recipe as well. Thanks, Kurz!!!..

Comment #8

Can someone please post a link to Kurtz's recipie...I'd love to check it out!..

Comment #9

Is there anyone that does not like Cauliflower but likes this pizza? I hate cauliflower but sure would like some "pizza"!..

Comment #10

You can't taste the Califlower so you'd like it most likely...

Comment #11

My husband does NOT like cauliflower and he enjoyed the pizza. As Kiki said, you simply don't taste the cauliflower. Just a very satisfying Pizza flavor...

Comment #12

Thanks for the preshredded cheese tip Freya. I've been reading preshredded packages like crazy. All I had to do was grab that block on the shelf underneath!!!! Who knew? (thunk of hand thunking forhead)...

Comment #13

This non-cauliflower lover is going to give it a try! Yipee PIZZA!..

Comment #14

Here is the link to Kurweil's incomparable crust:.

Happily, I JUST finished a half of said pizza and a green salad w/balsamic vinegar. This is one of my favorite lean and greens EVER. Bread is a trigger for me, and this recipe is so satisfying I don't think I'll ever have to risk wheat pizza again, even long after transition..

Every time I eat this I bless Medifast with my first bite and Kurweil with my next, then back to Medifast with the following bite, and then on to Kurweil again.....

Comment #15

I have got to try this recipe. I just can't get motivated enough to go through all that work for a little bitty pizza. Pizza was/is a major trigger for me. Total binge fest every time I ordered one...

Comment #16

With the ingredients you buy there is PLENTY left over to make more than one pizza. I'm going to make another today. I steam the cauliflower in a Pampered Chef microwave container I have (makes it easier), then use the little food processor to shred up the cauliflower (again easier with a food processor). I DO hand shred the cheese since to me fresh shredded cheese has ALWAYS tasted better to me and also it's more OP. Then I have a nicer toaster over (Cuisinart) which makes the pizza nice and brown and doesn't heat up our whole house. The recipe I listed above on top of the thread is the one I made, it's slightly different than the gal who did the pictures God bless her for doing that though, as it does make it easier to see how to make it.

Can't wait to make another one today :-)..

I bought a 3 pack of disposable pizza pans for about $1.50 at Walmart that the pizza fits in just perfectly...I sometimes make a double crust and freeze one in the pan for a quick fix. I've used the pans dozens of times despite them being "disposable"...
