Mini Cauliflower Pizzas With Beet Pesto, Goat Cheese And Prosciutto
"Mini cauliflower pizzas with beet pesto and goat cheese topped with fresh basil and prosciutto. For the cauliflower crust, I used the same recipe I posted last weekend but substituted the ricotta with goat cheese. Then instead of making one pizza, I made mini bite size pizzas."

    For the beet pesto, wash and scrub beets. Wrap beets and garlic with a little olive oil in aluminum wrap and bake until beets are soft, around 45 minutes. Put all ingredients except for olive oil in a blender and blend. With the blender on, slowly start pouring olive oil in the pesto. Blend until the desired consistency.

    For the cauliflower crust, put the cauliflower florets in a food processor and blend for a few seconds to get a couscous-like consistency. Put the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and cook for 4 minutes. Let it cool slightly.

  • Step 4

    Put the cauliflower in a clean kitchen or cheese clothes and squeeze out all the moisture. Add the eggs, cheese and seasonings. Mix. Put the dough on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and for a circle or square shape.

  • Step 5

    Bake at 425F for 25 minutes, until the top is slightly browned. Now you can add the toppings. Bake until cheese gooey.
