Carb-less #Passover Pizza

Carb-less #Passover Pizza


    For the crust:
  • 1 Cauliflower cut into small pieces (or equivalent amount pre-cut)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp grated cheese (preferably mozzarella)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Polenta mixture
  • For the sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic (chopped)
  • 1 can cherry tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • 2 Tsp sugar
  • 1/2 chilli flakes
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • Low fat mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.
  2. Blend the cauliflower in a food processor until it has become a grainy paste. Pour into a mixing bowl and mix in the garlic paste, olive oil, egg and grated cheese. Mix all the ingredients together. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Cover a flat baking tray with parchment paper. Grease the paper with a little bit of olive oil. Sprinkle a pinch of polenta mixture on to the tray.
  4. Take about 3 heaps of cauliflower and flatten it out onto the tray with a spatula into the pizza shape of your choice.
  5. You should have enough 'dough' left over for 1 another medium sized pizza. Repeat sequence with the rest of the dough.
  6. Bake for 20-25 or until golden. With a large spatula, carefully turn the pizza crust over and bake the other side for 10 minutes.
  7. (You may put the crusts under the broiler for a few minutes to make them extra crispy but make sure they don't burn!)
  8. While the crusts are baking, make the sauce. In a pan, heat up a tablespoon of olive oil, add the chopped garlic, sauté until softened a little and add the can of tomatoes. Smash the pieces of tomato so the sauce is a little smoother. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  9. Once the pizza 'dough' is golden and hard, smooth a large amount of the sauce on top and leave about a half inch space around the outside to make the crust. Top with (low fat) fresh mozzarella cheese and top with a little olive oil, salt and pepper.
  10. Add your favourite toppings. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle some basil leaves for decoration and enjoy! (guilt-free!)

Your Fruit Plate- How to Slice a Mango

This Mother’s Day and Shavuot make sure your fruit platter is the hit of your dessert table. Cut your watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwis, strawberries  uniformly, and place your beautifully cut mangos on top or on the sides. When fruit is appealing, your kids and  guests will be just as temped to grab a vitamin C packed chunk of fruit instead of a sugary snack.

The video above shows several ways to slice a mango. Of course all of the different mango shapes are beautiful but my favotite are the decorative mango cubes pictured above!

How to Slice a Mango- Decorative Style:

  1. Stand the firm but ripe mango on its end, with stem side down
  2. Slice the flat sides off the mango, without cutting into the pit
  3. Place half mango on a cutting board, flesh side up
  4. Without cutting through the skin, score the mango with vertical lines
  5. Next, score mango with horizontal lines; leaving squares attached to the skin
  6. Turn the piece of fruit inside out and use a spoon to dislodge the cubes from the skin
  7. Repeat for the other half of the mango. Let the kids enjoy the pit!!!
