For those of you who know me, you know that the words cooking and Sharon are two things you rarely hear in the same sentence. But a few weeks ago, I decided to take a break from ALL (insert tears, hysteria) carbs as part of the 17 day diet. A diet to essentially reset my body (I hope) in order to take back some control of my 45 year old body that was starting it’s own personal revolution against me.
The first phase of the 17 Day Diet includes embracing a carb-free diet. I researched a lot of different carb-free recipes, especially cauliflower recipes, but found that most were very focused around products that were solely available in the US marketplace. Things like fat-free cheese that I have been unable to locate in Canada. So essentially I made up my own recipe for a cauliflower pizza and I have to say, for a cauliflower base, it was pretty damn tasty.
I make no claims that this cauliflower pizza compares to a wood oven pizza because, well, it just doesn’t as far as I’m concerned BUT it definitely helps me feel satisfied and less deprived while my family chomps away at their crusty carb laden delicious bread based version of this (I’m not bitter at all).
If you try it out, let me know how it worked out and if you made any adjustments to the recipe. Always looking to improve!
