The average slice of pizza has approximately 100-150 calories from the crust alone along with a serving of unhealthy refined carbohydrates. One way to lower your calorie and refined carbohydrate intake and increase your vegetable intake is to try the following recipe for cauliflower crust. Overall, it is easy to prepare, the hardest part being squeezing the excess moisture from the cauliflower after it is cooked in the microwave. Taste-wise, it is very good and it also holds together nicely.
1 head cauliflower (6 inch diameter) (150 calories)
2 eggs (150 calories)
15g light cheddar cheese (90 calories) (optional)
Makes 6 servings.
