Blue Cheese & Mushroom Pizza

Definitely not the healthiest option. There are a few things that make it healthier than your typical delivery pizza.

  1. I used a cauliflower crust. Monteli brand frozen crusts have no cholesterol and a low percentage of saturated fat (5% DRV). That's especially good for a prepackaged item. A lot of low carb options have over more than 100% DRV of saturated fat. Something to think about: it's good to be thin, but your veins might still clog.

  2. There's no tomato sauce. This isn't great news for everyone, but a lot of people with kidney disease have to avoid tomatoes.

  3. You can control how much cheese you put on your pizza. It's not piled on like you might get from a delivery option.

There, see. Indulging can be little less bad. :)

  • Cooked mushrooms on the stove first

  • Used truffle infused EVO

Ingredients

2 Monteli's cauliflower gluten free pizza crusts (do not defrost)

Cooking spray

1 tbsp truffle infused EVO

4 cloves garlic, sliced

½ cup chopped spring onions or scallions

3 tbsp chopped fresh sage

2 tsp Italian seasoning

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp crushed red pepper

½ cup crumbled blue cheese

¼ cup pine nuts, toasted


Instructions

Preheat your oven to 420F.


Add EVO to a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and saute for 7 minutes. Add garlic and saute one minute more. Remove from heat.


Spray your crusts with a little bit of oil. Add the mushrooms, garlic, spring onions, sage, seasonings, and blue cheese.


Put the topped crusts on pizza pans and pop them in the oven for 9-11 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.


Remove from oven and add toasted pine nuts. Enjoy!
