we wanted to give the cauliflower pizza crust from TJ8217;s a whirl and see how it held up against their frozen organic pizza crust that i normally use. the cauliflower crust had a nice consistency, it8217;s made with corn and it almost has a polenta type taste and texture. if you8217;re looking for something gluten free than i think this is a great option but i personally prefer their other crust. regardless, any sort of crust with this combo on top is A+! everything we used was from trader joe8217;s. -joanie
what you’ll need:
• 1 package pizza cauliflower crust (from trader joes)
• 2-3 small heirloom tomatoes
• 6oz sliced buffalo mozzarella (shredded mozzarella works great too!)
• 1 4oz package prosciutto (optional)
• 8 oz fresh basil (two containers from trader joes)
• olive oil
• 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
• 1/3 cup raw walnuts
• 2 garlic cloves
• salt and pepper to taste
• 1 lemon squeezed
• bake the cauliflower crust by the instructions on the packaging.
• slice the heirloom tomatoes, salt them to release some of their juices and set aside. really juicy tomatoes can make the crust soggy!
• take the buffalo mozzarella slices pat dry until some of the moisture has been removed. (this will avoid a soggy pizza as it bakes!)
• to make the pesto, add all the pesto ingredients in a food processor except the olive oil. turn the food processor on and slowly pour the olive oil until you get a smooth consistency.
• spread the pesto onto the cauliflower crust and add the mozzarella slices (and prosciutto if you are adding a meat option). broil the pizza an additional 5 minutes or according to the packaging directions.
• once baked add the sliced heirloom tomatoes and garnish with basil leaves.
