Taco Pizza with Cauliflower Crust

Taco Pizza with Cauliflower CrustSo I had posted about the vegan and gf cauliflower pizza crust, and how much I enjoyed it.  Enjoyed it enough that I made another pizza at the same time.  Enjoyed enough that I want to keep on making pizza!  Enjoyed it so much that I am trying to think of new ways to not just use this crust, but also new recipes with cauliflower “rice”.  Have your tried it yet? Here is my Taco Pizza with the Cauliflower Pizza Crust.

I had originally bought the taco ingredients…to make tacos, but then the pizza making was so awesome and I had so much shredded cauliflower leftover and I haven’t had a taco pizza in over twenty years (tragic I know) that I decided to go for it.  After the crust is done everything else is super simple.  True with any pizza crust, I suppose.  While the pizza crust is baking process the beans, which just means drain and rinsing the beans and putting them in the food processor and adding spices.  Turn on and let go.

On the crust pour your sauce and spread with a spoon.  Then spoon the beans on top of the sauce then carefully (because the crust will split) smooth them out with either the spoon or your fingers.  Then sprinkle the chopped onions, taco filling (this is not gf, unfortunately), mushrooms and olives, then top with cheese.  Bake for 20 minutes then eat up.  Be careful when putting on plate – the crust is flimsy and should be eaten with a fork.  Savor this and know that you have made a less-calorie pizza crust and your own “refried” beans!

  1. I just tried cauliflower pizza crust for the first time and loved it! But it didn’t stick together well enough to pick up. Definitely pizza with a fork. Great idea to make a taco pizza version!
