What To Do:

Garlic-Mushroom Bolognese with Cali

1. Bake Cauliflower Crust: Preheat oven to 400°F. Place cauliflower pizza crust on a vented pizza pan, pizza screen or baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for a minimum of 10 minutes (don’t skip this step as it makes the crust crispier). Once cooled and crisp, cut into strips or wedges.

2. Sauté Mushrooms: While the crust is baking, cook the mushrooms. In a medium saucepan over high heat add 2 teaspoons oil, mushrooms and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms begin to brown (about 5 minutes). Reduce heat to low and stir in garlic and ONLY 1 teaspoon oregano. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms become tender.

3. Finish Sauce: Stir in crushed tomatoes and ¾ cup water. Cook until heated through.

To Serve: Divide sauce between two bowls and top with Parmesan cheese. Serve cauliflower crisps on the side for dipping.

Pro Tip:

Cooking mushrooms on low in the beginning causes them to release their juices and steam instead of browning. Always start high and end low!

Spice it Up!: Tomatoes are a fruit that take to warm spices like cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. So add another flavor layer by adding a very slight pinch of ground cinnamon to this sauce.
