Ditch the pepperoni and try something different on your pizza tonight. Cauliflower, leeks, and mushrooms are a surprisingly fantastic combination!
Course: Main Course
Servings: 6
Ingredients
  • pizza dough for a 12-inch round
  • 2 slices bacon , chopped
  • 3 cups small cauliflower florets
  • 2 whole small leeks , green ends removed, sliced, washed thoroughly, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated Parmesan
  • 4 ounces sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 1 cup Sargento sharp cheddar , fine cut, divided
  • chopped fresh parsley
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add bacon and cauliflower; sauté until bacon is crispy and cauliflower is slightly charred, about 5 minutes. Add the leeks and butter and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Season with the cracked red pepper flakes and some salt and pepper.
  3. Roll out your dough to a 12-inch round. Transfer to a heated pizza stone. Brush the crust with the olive oil, leaving a 1-inch border. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Top with the mushrooms, followed by the cauliflower mixture, and 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake for 13 minutes until crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Sprinkle on the remaining 1/4 cup cheese and cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and top with chopped parsley, if desired. Slice and serve!
