This Amazing Deep Dish Pizza if made with a Nut Free, Low Carb & Gluten Free Pie Crust and a Hidden veggie that will fool any picky eater!
Sometimes you can fool even the pickiest of veggie eaters and sometimes you can’t. But this recipe I’m recipe today is a fool proof one for all the pickiest of eaters!
In case you’re new around here, I share a lot about my 3 picky picky kids, but often the pickiest one of all is my meat and potatoes hubby. He’s a lover of veggies don’t get me wrong, but he is also a lover of all things carbs and starch so fooling him into eating a low carb pizza is a feat in and of itself!
Of course I told them all after they tried a slice. And they all said they could not taste one ounce of cauliflower and for that they were happy. When my kids knowingly see roasted cauliflower they cringe, but mashed and hidden into other recipes which replicate a favorite type of food, they are more than willing to try it.
A traditional deep dish pizza is often eaten like pie, with a fork and knife so that was what I was going for here. This is not a “pick-it-up” like a standard pizza recipe. You need a fork and nice but it is so satisfying and filling you’ll be glad you made the effort to make this for the family and yourself.
The nutrition info is only for the pie crust, no toppings. You’ll just have to use your imagination with the toppings of choice your family likes. If you need to figure out calories/macros I suggest using myfitnesspal.com.
I seriously believe cauliflower can easily be disguised in many traditional recipes with a few little tweaks here and there to make it low carb.
It’s a hearty, comforting meal when you just feel like pizza.
Enjoy with a nice side salad and dinner is served!
If you’re looking for more of a traditional style pizza, this Cauliflower Pizza from from Cookie Rookie looks fantastic! If you prefer vegetarian this Cauliflower Crust from Kalyn’s Kitchen sounds great. For a little less traditional this Caulfilower Croque Monsieur, and finally something the kids might love the most are these Cauliflower Bread Sticks!
If it’s just another way to get my kids to eat cauliflower, well, that’s how I roll and I’m totally ok with it.
- Please weigh your ingredients. One head of cauliflower may be very large and over a pound. Others may be on the smaller side. 4 ounces of coconut flour does not mean 1/2 cup. Please weigh. Thank you!
- There is no need to pre-cook your cauliflower.
