Carrot Crust Pizza







Joe and Sue posted this recipe . I  love carrots and WOW is this good!




Ingredients:

1 cup chopped very fine carrots ( 3-4 depending on size)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded 
1 egg- beaten


Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Line a pizza pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Wash then cut the ends off the carrots.

Peel. I used organic carrots so I didn't peel.

Cut into small pieces and add to your food processor and pulse until the carrots are chopped very fine.

Remove the carrots from the food processor.

Place the carrots on a clean white towel ( hint- it will stain the towel. You could use a cheesecloth. Paper towel did not work for me) and squeeze as much juice as you can from the carrots. You might have to do it a few times to make sure you get it as dry as you can.

Add 1 cup of finely chopped dry carrots to a medium sized bowl. Add the beaten egg, garlic and mozzarella. Mix until well combined.


 Spread the mixture with a spatula onto pan lined with parchment paper. It should make about an 8 inch circle. 

Bake at 400 degrees for  12-15 minutes or more. You want the edges to  brown and the "crust" should look dry.

Top with whatever you like. 

Put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes.

Note: Time saver. If you have a juicer don't toss the pulp from carrot juice. Make pizza crust!!!!!!!!!!

  3. This looks so good. I can't imagine how you don't need to use flour in the crust. This is worth a try.

  10. I have made cauliflower pizza crust before but never thought of carrot so I may well give this a go. Now all I need to do is to work out how I can grow carrots better. This ear was a complete fail and with a cold spring in France I couldn't get them to germinate! Popping by from #WasteLessWednesday
