If you are not a fan of garlic it might just be time to walk away from this post. Today I will tell you how I created a Garlicky Greek CaulipowerÂ Pizza using a blank crust from CaulipowerÂ and some Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette. You can adjust this recipe to your taste with the garlic but the amount that is noted in here is for garlic lovers only. This is believe it or not, my first time ever having a Greek pizza. I love Greek food so I kind of had an idea in my mind that everything would turn out wonderful to me. Guess what? I nailed it and that is why I am sharing this recipe to you for my Greek Caulipower Pizza! This pizza does not contain any meat so it a vegetarian pizza and would be perfect for any veggie lover.
CaulipowerÂ Crust – The Greek Pizza All Starts Here
If you are looking at my post and my photos here and are drooling a bit and craving thisÂ Greek Caulipower Pizza then you are going to need your base to start with. This was my second time trying the CaulipowerÂ crust. I bought a veggie CaulipowerÂ pizza not too long ago and dressed it up with some additional toppings. This time I wanted to be the artist and the chef and create my own on a blank slate. The blank CaulipowerÂ crust pack contains two crusts and if you want you can double this recipe so that you have twoÂ Greek Caulipower Pizzas. The recipe has enough servings and slices for two people. That is of course unless you have a huge appetite and can eat an entire pizza by yourself.
The Power Of The Caulipower
Let’s talk a bit about why I love this CaulipowerÂ crust so much.
First of all, it is paleo friendly. If you do not add any cheese this pizza will fulfill your paleo diet needs.
Secondly, we all know that cauliflower crust is all the rage these days because it is low-carb. A cauliflower crust pizza is leaning in the guilt-free direction of things. You can take a peek at the nutrition facts below (source). A serving size is considered 1/3 of the pizza and considering this is pizza it only comes in at 17 grams of carbs. A regular pizza is at least twice that amount and averages about 36 grams of carbs for just one slice (source)!
And third, this Caulipower crust is nice and crisp! Often times a cauliflower crust can result in sogginess from the moisture that can be found in cauliflower. If you ever make your own crust you really have to squeeze the moisture out. I made my own cauliflower crust last year and while it was good, the texture of it was mushy. I did not get enough of the moisture out. Caulipower takes the frustration out of cauliflower crust. These blank crusts have endless possibilities.
Garlic. Garlic. And More Garlic!
There. I said it three times so you get the point. This Greek CaulipowerÂ Pizza recipe is chockful of garlic. I put three heaping tablespoons of it in the blender with my Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette. When I need minced garlic I skip the knifework and IÂ grab myÂ Spice World Minced Garlic. My knife skills suck if I am going to be honest here and minced garlic can be tricky. I really need to improve in the knife department. Spice World does all of the work for you and they are my go-to brand. They do also have an organic minced garlic available and I often try to use that but my Kroger was out the last time I shopped so I just went with regular.
Bring On The Cheese Please
A Greek Caulipower Pizza would not be Greek if it weren’t for the feta cheese! No Greek pizza is complete without feta. For this recipe, I went with a blend of feta and a mozzarella. I used one small container of Kroger’s Simple Truth Feta Cheese and I used a handful of Tillamook mozzarella, which is my favorite shredded mozzarella cheese.
For the rest of the toppings on this Greek Caulipower Pizza, I used cherry tomatoes, sliced kalamata olives, pepperoncinis, and half of a slivered and sliced shallot. Next time I make a Greek pizza I am going to add some sliced beets to it. I think beets would have been awesome on this pizza, so now you know! You might just want to add them to yours.
I would love for you to know exactly what came out of my daughter’s mouth when she hesitantly took her first bite of this pizza. I did not think she would agree with it because of the potent taste of feta cheese BUT the first thing she said was,
“Wow, Mom! This pizza has sooooo much flavor!”
(Words spoken by my 8-year-old daughter, Chloe)
It does have quite a potent garlic flavor so just scale back a tablespoon if three is too intense for you.
We were both impressed with the crisp texture of this Caulipower Crust! Could it be magic? I do not know how they do it but it sure turns out crisp after 13 minutes baking in the oven! It is very impressive to me that Caulipower has the power to transform cauliflower into a pizza crust that doesn’t disappoint.
