Quick Tips

Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: For a whole-wheat pizza, use 1 (20-ounce) whole wheat pizza dough ball. Preheat oven to 500°F. Stretch the dough to fit a greased large baking sheet and cooked until golden, about 15 minutes. Cover with toppings, again cooking in the oven briefly until cheese melts.

Keep it Healthy Icon

Keep it Healthy: Another way to get a healthy pizza dinner on the table even quicker than with the cauliflower crust is to use whole-wheat pita bread. Place pitas onto a foiled and greased baking sheet, topping with the tomato sauce—use more tomato sauce than with the cauliflower pizza, around ¾ cup to 1 cup—and pile high with cooked vegetables and cheese. Bake in a 425°F oven until pita is crispy, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Tip: Use any remaining cauliflower purée to toss in with a grain for a future night’s dinner or to sprinkle into salads.
