The first few post-Pesach days are filled with the hurried rush to consume as much “chometz” as possible – and then the weight concerns begin. For some, the gut reaction (pun intended) is to stop eating – never a good idea. We all know that the best way to lose those extra pounds is by focusing on eating healthy.

This week we asked some of The Jewish Press staff to share with us some of their low-fat or low-calorie recipes. We hope you enjoy them.

 

Cauliflower Crust Pizza – Jodie Maoz

(makes 3 individual size pizzas)

This is a fun recipe to do with kids. Let them pick out the vegetables they want – try to give them a colorful array. Try to make it colorful. Since these are individual pizzas everyone can have their favorites. Let us know if you come up with any interesting pizza twists.

Ingredients

1 head cauliflower (or 1 lb bag frozen, thawed in refrigerator)
1 egg or egg white (per pizza)
½ cup shredded cheese (per pizza)
Vegetable toppings (per pizza)

Directions

Microwave cauliflower for 6 minutes (don’t add water)

Chop cauliflower (in food processor or with hand blender). Do NOT puree. There will be pieces.

Take 1 cup of the cauliflower, egg or egg white, ½ cup shredded cheese and mix well.

Put on cookie sheet already sprayed with olive oil

Don’t let the edges of crust mixture touch sides of pan as that will make the edges hard.

Bake at 450° degrees for 15-20 minutes. Edges should be golden brown

Remove from oven and put on sauce and then top with your favorite vegetables (mushrooms, peppers, olives, etc). Sprinkle with cheese and put back in oven just until cheese is melted.
