Kids Take Over the Kitchen on Football Sunday

Today, Sunday, September 13 isn’t only the kick-off to football season, but it’s also National Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day. We worked with our friend Amy Fischer, RD (@thegreenfisch) to develop this easy and healthy broccoli-cauliflower gluten-free pizza crust that will wow your football guests of all ages.

Add broccoli and cauliflower florets to blender or food processor and pulse until fine and resembles rice. Add broccoli-cauliflower mixture to a steamer basket and lightly steam until soft, 3-5minutes. Let cool slightly and put mixture into a nut milk bag or a towel to squeeze out excess liquid.

In a medium bowl, using a large spoon, combine broccoli-cauliflower mixture with oregano, garlic, pecorino-romano, mozzarella, egg, salt and pepper. Spread mixture onto lined baking sheet for one large pizza crust or divide into individual pizzettes. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until lightly browned.
