Soooo...this pizza is really good.
1 premade pizza crust (I used Pillsbury)
4 1/2 cups cauliflower, cut into small florets
2 medium to large yellow onions, sliced
5 cloves garlic, smashed and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. vegan butter (I used Earth Balance brand)
1 tbsp. olive oil, divided
2-3 tsp. salt (to taste)
Dash of black pepper
Dash of cayenne pepper
Dash of cumin
Instructions:1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Add the cauliflower, vegan butter, 4 cloves of garlic, black pepper, cayenne pepper, cumin, and a teaspoon of salt to a medium roasting pan. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and roast for about 12 minutes.
2. Remove roasting pan from the oven and stir the cauliflower, adding a dash of salt or two if necessary. Return the pan to the oven and continue roasting for another 5 to 10 minutes, until tender and a little browned.
3. While the cauliflower is roasting, caramelize the onions: add the onions, 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, a few dashes of salt, and one garlic clove to a large pan. Cook on medium heat until tender and sweet, 15 to 20 minutes.
4. Grease a pizza pan and lay the pizza dough out on the pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Follow the baking instructions for the crust. You may have to pre-bake it for a few minutes before adding the toppings.
5. Once the onions and cauliflower are done and once you have pre-baked the pizza dough, add a layer of onions to the pizza dough, followed by a layer of cauliflower, and then a layer of onions.
6. Top with Panko breadcrumbs, drizzle with olive oil, and continue baking for the recommended amount of time. (I baked mine for an additional 10 minutes after pre-baking my dough for 5 minutes).*
*I used Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza Dough. The instructions said to pre-bake the dough on 400 for 5 minutes, add the toppings, and then continue baking for another 6 to 10 minutes.
