Easy Mediterranean Cauliflower Pizza that is not only healthy but is delicious too! Made with a healthy pizza cauliflower crust that is gluten-free. This meal is quick and easy to make.
It’s dinner time! What can I make healthy and quick that tastes good?? I start looking in the freezer and pantry and find a box of Cauliflower Pizza Crust. Yes, a healthy pizza for dinner!
I have a plain cauliflower pizza crust, so I have a blank canvas awaiting what I can find in my pantry and refrigerator. Whatever you or I decide, you can’t go wrong with this pizza crust made with cauliflower as the first ingredient, so it’s naturally gluten-free.
I used a jarred pizza sauce, but by adding basil pesto and oregano it added tons of flavor. I found a can of artichoke hearts, alongside a jar of roasted red peppers and delicious green olives that we normally use for martini’s, but it’s time to break them out for the pizza.
As for the cheese, I used crumbles of goat and feta cheese that are the perfect way to top off this Easy Mediterranean Cauliflower Pizza. Normally I eat dairy-free meals, but will use goat and feta cheese on occasion.
I had a large box of arugula to make salads or use in smoothies. I wanted something fresh on the top to add color.
It’s time to begin baking the pizza. I set the oven according to the box instructions at 450 degrees. You want to cook the pizza frozen. Otherwise, it will begin very fragile when handling. The instructions on the box said to bake for 13 to 15 minutes, and that is way too long, at least in my oven.
I put the pizzas directly on the oven rack. The crust is very crispy, but the top was not as bubbly as I wanted. I turned the broiler on and cooked the pizza for four minutes or until the cheese is soft and melted, not burned. The whole process took about seven to eight minutes.
It was time to eat! I cut the slices and serving them on a plate. I add fresh arugula on the top with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to finish.
*One last note. The recipe can be cook over medium heat for about four to five minutes or until crisp, not letting the edges get too brown. Remove the crust with a large spatula and top with the desired ingredients. Return to the grill and cook about three to four minutes or until the cheese begins to melt and edges are brown
