Ingredients

  • CRUST
  • cooking spray
  • ½ head cauliflower
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ¾ cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten or ¼ cup egg substitute
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • COOKED TOPPINGS
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 JENNIE-O® Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages
  • 3 crimini or white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup shredded kale
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • FRESH TOPPINGS
  • 5 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 medium heirloom tomato or beefsteak tomato, sliced
  • ¼ cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 4 basil leaves

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Line pizza pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  3. Cut cauliflower into florets. Add cauliflower florets and 2 garlic cloves to food processor and pulse until the cauliflower turns into rice-sized pieces.
  4. Spread cauliflower and garlic across baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes until cooked through; set aside to cool.
  5. Make the cauliflower crust dough:
  6. In bowl, combine cooked cauliflower, ¾ cup mozzarella cheese, egg, and oregano; mix well until a dough-like texture forms.
  7. Form and bake crust:
  8. Spread mixture onto the parchment paper-coated 10-inch pizza pan and create a circular crust.
  9. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Allow crust to cool 10 minutes before removing the parchment paper and placing the toppings on it.
  10. While the crust is cooling, prepare the toppings.
  11. Prepare your toppings:
  12. Remove turkey sausages from their casings. In medium size pan on medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. To heated oil, add turkey sausage. As it cooks, break apart with wooden spoon. Cook the turkey until done, approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Always cook turkey until well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer.
  13. To turkey, add mushrooms, kale, salt and pepper. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until mushrooms have softened and the kale is wilted down.
  14. Assemble your pizza:
  15. Layer sausage mixture, tomatoes, ¼ cup cheese and basil over the slightly cooled pizza crust.
  16. Bake your pizza:
  17. Bake 5 to 6 minutes or until pizza is hot and bubbly.
