spicy broccoli and burrata pizza with cauliflower crust


I talk about incorporating balance at meals with most of my patients and clients, and oftentimes patients ask if this means they can’t eat their favorite foods, like pizza. It does NOT mean you have to eliminate or avoid certain foods, more often than not it means adding MORE to your meals.

For example, balance at most meals looks like making 1/2 of your plate vegetables. To make pizza balanced in this way, I chose to use cauliflower pizza crust and add broccoli and snap peas as the topping.


Instead of focusing on avoiding and restricting, what can you think about adding to make meals more balanced :)

ingredients (makes 1 pizza)

cauliflower pizza crust

8 oz burrata (2 balls)

spicy chunky tomato and pepper pasta sauce

1 cup broccoli florets

1/2 cup snap peas

1/4 cup feta

2 tbsp parmesan

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp olive oil

microgreens to garnish

recipe (makes 4 servings)

  1. heat cauliflower crust per instructions on packaging (recommend baking it in the oven at 450F without toppings for 10-15 mins, flipping crust halfway to crisp)

  2. add your toppings starting with this pasta sauce

  3. add broccoli, snap peas, and burrata

  4. sprinkle feta over pizza and place back in the oven for 10-15 mins, then broil for 5 mins to crisp the broccoli

  5. take out of the oven and add parmesan, drizzle with olive oil and honey, garnish with microgreens, and enjoy!

prep time: 40 mins
