Today’s Menu: Pizza Bread w/ Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower

 

 

 
Well if you live in or around Cincinnati you know it’s Opening Day. For this area as it’s always been it’s Christmas, Thanksgiving, and all the other Holiday tied into one day, Opening Day! It starts with 95th consecutive Findlay Market Parade that goes through the heart of Cincinnati and the party shifts on over to the Ball Park for the Red’s Opener. It’s the one day where kids can miss school for a day and you can call in sick to work, because they all know what you’re really doing! They might as well make it an official Holiday around here, which they’re trying to do I hear.

It’s a perfect day out today, sunny with a high close to 70 degrees! About time don’t you think. What a Winter we’ve had, along with the rest of the nation. Went to Walmart early and finally got a new gas grill, our other one finally died after 8 years. I haven’t got it together yet but can’t wait to fire it up! I’d like to try to buy a small smoker hopefully here shortly. For dinner tonight something a little different, Pizza Bread w/ Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower. A buddy of mine came over and watched the Red’s Game with me, so I whipped this up for us.

Started by preheating my oven to 400 degrees. I used a loaf of Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I cut the loaf in half, lengthwise, and then cut halves into small slices. I think normally a French Bread Loaf is used but the Sourdough Loaf has fewer calories and carbs, plus it bakes just as well also. After cutting the bread, using a small basting brush, I spread a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil across the tops of each slice. Put them on a foil lined Cookie Sheet and baked them for about 4 minutes, just to lightly crust the tops. Removed them from the oven and assembled y Pizza Breads.

For toppings I used a small can of Sliced Black Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage (crumbled), fresh grated Light Havarti Cheese, fresh grated Light Monterey Jack Cheese, and Ragu Homemade Style pizza Sauce. As always I try to cut calories, fat, and carbs where I can on ingredients. The Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage comes in a roll. So I sliced several pieces of and crumbled them and fried them in Canola oil until they were done. Drained what little grease there was and it was ready to be used as a topping. I had bought the Light Cheese from Kroger, it comes in blocks and I grate and shred them myself. After heating the bread I topped them with the Ragu Sauce, then the Turkey Pepperoni, Crumbled Turkey Sausage, sliced Black Olives, and a blend of the Havarti and Monterey Jack to top everything off. These looked good and tasted even better! The Bread was nice and crusty, the Ragu Sauce added great flavor and seasoning, and the blend of the two Cheese was perfect. Very good recipe for Pizza Bread

 

 

 
I made this for the first time a while back and love it for a side to go with any dish! To prepare it I needed; 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets), 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 cup or more) hot sauce, and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping. Then to make it is really easy I just tossed the cauliflower florets in the oil, salt and pepper, arranged in a single layer on a baking sheet and roasted in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Then, the good part, toss the cauliflower in the hot sauce. Serve it warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping and celery sticks on the side. It’s one delicious and healthy side dish! The Pizza Bread and Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower not my normal dinner but one delicious change! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.
