Meatless Monday- Cauliflower Pizza

I had cooked cauliflower in the fridge,  leftover tomato sauce and mozzarella, and then Juliet sent me the link to a tutorial for cauliflower pizza. I wasn't overly excited about it, as I have made cauliflower pizza a few times and it hasn't always turned out well.  Well this time it turned out a lot better, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you.

It's perfect for when you have cooked cauliflower leftover and ready to use. If you don't,  I recommend following the tutorial. That is, if you can bare watching this video. The recipe is great but the guy just drives me crazy. It is so sing-songy that I found it nearly unbearable. He actually says "press this in-around the outside, around the outside, around the outside.."

Anyway here is what I did- I grated 1 full cauliflower, using my attachment on my food processor. It can be done by hand as well. This makes cauliflower "rice". I then stir fried it with 1 onion. Easy as that. It made a ton! I then put it in Tupperware in the fridge to have to eat with meals throughout the week, instead of traditional rice.  After eating it as rice a few times I used what was left for this pizza. It actually reminded me a bit of the Cauliflower Fritters we made last summer.
