January is soon coming to an end, and it's most likely that you have tried your best to try to establish new and improved eating habits to help you reach your optimal weight and wellness goals. When it comes to food it's best to learn to navigate the healthy choice and work on creating lifetime habits.  

One healthy choice we continue to advocate for is to eliminate gluten from your diet. Gluten can cause inflammation in your gut because the proteins in gluten can irritate the lining of your gut. Eliminating gluten doesn't mean you go out and replace all gluten products you currently have, like breads and pastas with other processed but gluten free products. Instead look for alternative like this recipe from Dr.Rachel. 

Here is a gluten free pizza crust to give you a little bit of an indulgence without crazily veering off the rails.

A Great Cauliflower Crust Pizza

~ 2 lb. cauliflower florets, steamed, drained, riced with a potato masher

1 large egg, beaten

1/3 cup soft goat cheese (I used garlic herb)

1 teaspoon dried oregano (or your favorite Italian seasonings)

Pinch of salt and pepper

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Cauliflower Rice:  Boil or steam florets until medium tenderness (we don’t want it to be a mash), drain, and breakup with a potato masher.  ***Put riced cauliflower into a tea towel over a strainer and squeeze out the excess water.  This is the key to getting all the moisture out***
  • In a large bowl, mix the cauliflower, egg, goat cheese, and seasonings.
  • Press the mixture out onto parchment paper lined pizza pan or cookie sheet.  I recommend 1/3” thick.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.  Crust will get golden brown and should be firm.
  • When crust is done, top with sauce and toppings.  Bake for 5-10 minutes until toppings are done or warmed through to your liking.

***I make a couple batches of this at a time.  Cook the crust and let cool on the counter.   I freeze the extra crusts and it is a simple frozen pizza crust when you need it and don’t feel like cooking.
