Carrot Crust Pizza
Joe and Sue posted this recipe . I love carrots and WOW is this good!
1 cup chopped very fine carrots ( 3-4 depending on size)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 egg- beaten
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!!!!!!!!!!
