Every so often, I sit down a brainstorm a list of recipes for you guys. I end up with a long list of ideas, and some of them end up becoming a reality. The ones that do are the ones I’m most excited about sharing – I know they’ll taste amazing, are totally innovative, make your lives easier, something of the like.
But when I had this idea for cauliflower crust shakshuka pizza… my brain started SCREAMING. “GET IN THE KITCHEN AND MAKE IT RIGHT NOW!”
Shakshuka has been v trendy for quite some time now. I’m sure you’ve seen it all over social media, especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings. And for good reason! It’s totally delicious and definitely different from the brunch go-tos.
But turning it into a shakshuka pizza takes things to a whole new level. Usually I’ll get bread to scoop up my shakshuka anyways, so why not build it into the meal?
You can use whatever crust you damn well please for this shakshuka pizza. I have a great recipe for homemade pizza crust, you could use storebought pizza crust, or you could DIY your cauliflower pizza crust. I don’t have a recipe, but you could try this one! I made my life easy and used a storebought cauliflower crust – this one is my favorite (unsponsored: I’ve just tried several by now and figured out da best).
Shakshuka pizza is going to change your brunch game forever. For. Ever. Sounds dramatic, but it’s true. Make it, then come back and tell me what you think.
