Cauliflower Breakfast Pizza – #BreakfastAfterDark

Cauliflower Breakfast Pizza on And Her Little Dog Too

I love breakfast after dark. Also known as breakfast for dinner, but I think breakfast after dark is more fun, wouldn’t you agree? Breakfast is fun to make for any meal, it’s so delicious and easy to create, but I think you can make breakfast for dinner a special and fun occasion. It’s nice when we make breakfast after dark in our home because Charles and I never get to enjoy it together Monday through Friday – so it’s a nice little treat!

For this breakfast for dinner experience, I decided to recreate the California Cauliflower Breakfast Pizza found on the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! website. I have never made a breakfast pizza before, but I love pizza, so it was an easy choice for me.  But everything in the ICBINB recipe index looks incredible, and it’s all made better with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! since it has 70% less saturated fat than butter, no hydrogenated oils, and is made from a blend of vegetable oils – also it’s gluten free!

If you need some additional breakfast for dinner creation inspiration, Lisa Vanderpump from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills {also from one of my favorite reality show guilty pleasures – Pump Rules – love that show!}, is the new Breakfast After Dark spokesperson. She has some hilarious web series on the ICBINB website – I seriously love her, she entertains me to no end!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven 450°
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Spread on large baking sheet.*
  3. In a food processor, process cauliflower until consistency of rice. Remove from food processor, strain and squeeze excess water.
  4. Combine strained cauliflower with 1 egg, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning. Pat into a 12-inch circle on baking sheet. Bake on the middle rack, 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon Spread in a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Add vegetables and turkey bacon. Cook until vegetables are tender and bacon is crisp; remove and set aside.
  6. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon Spread in skillet and scramble the 3 remaining eggs.
  7. Top cooked “crust” with cooked vegetables, bacon, scrambled eggs and remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Broil until golden brown. Sprinkle with basil just before serving.

Four Steps

 Needless to say, as you can see from the photos, the pizza turned out amazing. I was a little unsure about the crust at first, since I love my classic whole wheat & honey pizza dough so much, but I am so glad I tried out the cauliflower crust. It was so tasty! As you can see, I used a pie dish, because the crust was a little moist at first, but it turned out fine.

This is a great recipe because it features lots of veggies but you can make this meal you own – add any meal or vegetable combination, different kinds of cheeses, spices or even some hot sauce to give it a kick! I also love how broiling the pizza at the end of the recipe gave the melted cheese that real pizza look. Yum!

    I have to say that I always use ICBINB and absolutely love it for all of my butter uses as well as baking. The recipe looks amazing and I will definitely check out the ICBINB site.

    Today we will be looking at the Oral-B Professional Care Deluxe Electric Toothbrush – 8850
    DLX. ) Once I cleaned up the toothpaste, I tried it again,
    and this time it felt as if my teeth were going to shake out of my head.
    When you brush too hard or incorrectly you expose the roots of the
    teeth, which are supposed to be below the gums and therefore insulated.

    In this recipe is the cauliflower to be cooked before putting in food processor? You don’t have anything about that in the recipe but you show a picture of the cauliflower in a pan and you say to get out the excess water which I think is only necessary if you cook it.

      Yes! In a food processor, process cauliflower until consistency of rice. Remove from food processor, strain and squeeze excess water. Let me know if you have any other questions!
