Cauliflower Steaks Pizza Recipes (perfect for game day)
Just when you thought we were done replacing all good things with cauliflower, we responded with “but wait, there’s more!” We have already made pizza crust with cauliflower, and we have turned buffalo chicken into buffalo cauliflower. Both were BIG hits! I have even gone so far as to making a cauliflower mac ‘n cheese and a cauliflower potato salad.
But rather than once again morphing the cauliflower into something it’s not, how about just accepting it for what it is? A healthful white veggie that can stand alone all by itself (or with a few toppings).
I mean, cauliflower has a pretty stacked resume when it comes to health.
Cauliflower is mostly made up of water, fiber, and a small number of carbs. It’s high in vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and more, yet it’s low in calories. That is, it’s a nutrient-dense food.
The health benefits of cauliflower include:
- High nutrient density
- Anti-inflammatory support
- Ability to help fight heart disease and cancer
- Anti-aging properties
- Detoxing properties
- Plenty of fiber
- Promoter of healthy weight loss
The good news about cauliflower is that you can eat it every day in every different way and not only not get sick of it, but look forward to it for more than its benefits. Laura Seib, from television’s Food Network, even published an article about her experiment of eating cauliflower every day for one week. Pretty interesting read, though I already know I could totally do that. Easy peasy.
Check out this super simple step-by-step recipe for making pizza steaks. (No, I am not replacing steaks with cauliflower and don’t suggest you do either—unless that’s what you’re into. 😉)
