Cauliflower pizzas are like a regular thin pizza but so much lighter, which means you don't feel quite so heavy after eating them. So, I thought I'd lighten up the entire meal a little, not just the crust, because did you know September is National Cholesterol Awareness month? Fun fact: A clinical study showed Mazola® Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.
You can reduce saturated fats and cholesterol in your meals easily with simple swaps, such as substituting butter with Mazola Corn Oil. So, I swapped out regular bacon for turkey bacon (especially for M who prefers a meat-lovers pizza), I swapped cauliflower pizzas for everyone instead of making flour dough based pizzas for the family members who are not gluten-free, and I swapped Mazola Corn Oil for cooking the sausage and for brushing onto the pizzas before cooking instead of extra virgin olive oil.
Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol-free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health. It has a variety of uses including baking, grilling, sautéing, stir-frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing.
Flynn is gluten-free; his body simply cannot tolerate gluten, so I've had to find a lot of alternative recipes for him so that he can still enjoy his favorite things (like pizza) and not feel like he's missing out. He first tried cauliflower pizza when we were sitting in an airport waiting for a flight earlier this summer and we needed to have dinner before we boarded. Being a picky eater, I was expecting him to hate it, so I didn't get anything for myself in case that ended up being my dinner, but he loved it so much he ate the entire thing.
So, now that I know he loves cauliflower pizza, I decided to make them for him at home, too. The best part is that by making them at home you can add whatever toppings you like.
My next step is to figure out whether I can pre-make a batch of cauliflower crust bases and freeze them and how they hold up once they are thawed. Have you tried this? If you have, please share any tips you have in the comments below.
