cauliflower crust mini pizzas

July 11, 2014

perfectly crusted cauliflower pizzasI can’t believe it’s a Friday. This week both flew by, and felt like it was the longest week of my life.

I started the week off by taking the week off of working out. My “ladies days” are coming up, and I’ve been extremely busy with Funky Rooster, the blog and planning our wedding (50ish days and counting). I just needed a rest and recharge week. Especially when I’m planning on upping my workouts even more over the next 4 weeks  (more intense circuits, adding HIIT training and hopefully some nighttime yoga). The good thing is every time I stop working out, I just miss it more. My body craves it like a drug. I get all jumpy in my own skin, and nothing feels right or tight. So I’ll be happy to start back up on Sunday (after a much-needed, relaxing Saturday spent reading and getting my life in order).

At this point, without trying, my diet is about 65-70% health food. But that remainder is what’s keeping me from having my ideal wedding day body (forget the bikini body, I need the wedding dress body!). I’ve even created a secret Instagram account where I’m documenting every meal I eat, in order to hold myself better accountable.

So far it’s actually working. Last night, rather than tear apart and gulp down all our leftovers (from a client photo shoot), I actually only had about half of each. Which might sound like more, but was actually far less than I planned on eating. I even paused! I never pause. Gotta do whatever works best for you, I figure. And I’m hoping that this workout break + new documenting of meals = stepping it up in the gym & in the kitchen in next two months = results I’m hoping for. I’ll, obviously, keep you updated.

Now, there are tons of cauliflower pizza recipes out there. I know because I’ve attempted cauliflower pizza in the past and had absolutely no success with it. The crust was soggy and Ryan could taste the difference all too quickly (he’s such a texture person). But using this recipe, I have had nothing but success. Ryan absolutely loves them (I’ll give you one guess as to which pizzas are his) and it even fills him up! Plus, the recipe is made for  one perfectly proportioned size, which you can then double if you want to make an extra pizza. This also gives you leeway if your *coughcough* tastes are different.

His pizza

Topped with shredded cheddar, shredded mozzarella and pepperoni.

 

My pizza

Topped with shredded mozzarella, red and yellow belly peppers (pictured below) and a bit of shredded mozzarella, mozzarella pearls, arugula and cherry tomatoes (pictured way above) and could have been drizzled with balsamic vinegar after it came out of the oven for a really caprese-type pizza.
