TJ RECIPE: CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST

cauliflower crust pizza | designlovefest

we wanted to give the cauliflower pizza crust from TJ’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, it’s made with corn and it almost has a polenta type taste and texture. if you’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 joe’s-joanie

what youll 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)

pesto:
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

to make

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.
