Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I have been wanting to make a pizza crust with cauliflower instead of regular pizza dough for a while but never seem to have the chance. I wasn’t sure this would be a dinner favorite at the house so I usually opt for the regular version when we do make pizza (which is fairly often). This week I decided to do a small personal pie using cauliflower crust instead of regular pizza crust for my own weekday lunch so I could experiment and see if this would work for dinner too. It definitely does NOT give you the crispy crust that traditional pizza would allow for, but it does hold together decently well and is a far healthier alternative (great for those who are gluten-free too). I totally devoured the pizza in about 5 minutes so I guess you would have to say it was a success? I would make this again for dinner I think, but need to figure out ways to make it crispier! The best part –  it only took me 45 minutes or so start to finish to put this together.

I topped my pizza with regular tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, yellow summer squash, red onions, and tomatoes. Love this combination!. If I wasn’t being lazy, I would have sautéd the veggies a bit before putting them on the pizza, but it tasted great all the same.

Sweet Bell Pepper Rings With a Jalapeño-Sour Cream Dipping Sauce

This past long weekend was so nice and super relaxing – we really didn’t do much except shopping, brunching, and grilling a ton. In fact, we made pizza’s for the first time on the grill and they turned out awesome! I also made this grilled corn/kale salad with a cilantro vinaigrette that was killer. But alas, we didn’t take pictures of any of these delicious meals so I can’t post them. I am going to try and remake in the coming weeks so I can share!

I did want to post something from this weekend and last night I decided to try something fun and new for a snack that could also be a good go-to appetizer option for when we have people over. These fried bell pepper rings tasted like onion rings but with a sweeter taste. They were tiny, so it is a perfect finger food.

My husband grilled some jalapeños over the weekend and made a sauce with it so I used that to make the dipping sauce by adding some sour cream to cut out the heat. It was a perfect sauce for these rings!
