There are two types of people in this world. People who can make beautiful cauliflower crust and people who can’t. Guess which category I’m in…Sometimes the pizza vibe is coming on strong but I don’t feel like being stuffed from all of that crust. Enter this delicious rice pizza crust! I was skeptical that it would turn out well but oh my it’s delicious!
Did you know? 85% of the rice we eat is US-grown. That’s right! Farmers in AR, CA, LA, TX, MS, & MO grow 18 billion pounds of rice each year!
September is National Rice Month so we have been experimenting with #alltherecipes related to rice and I must say my love of rice has been rekindled! It is so versatile and with so many varieties the possibilities are truly endless! We made a delicious pumpkin rice crispy treat that I’m still dreaming about. Check out the recipe on our Instagram here.
Now, grab your pumpkin spice candles, boots, and fall scarves because this Fall Harvest Pizza is giving us all the fall feels. For the crust, simply combine eggs, spices, rice, and a bit of cheese. Pour onto greased pizza pan and flatten into a 12″ circle. [Ps. If your pizza pan doesn’t look like this ugly thing then you’re not baking enough. My best roasting sheets look like this one…very loved!] Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, the middle should be firm.

Now for the fun part. Go crazy with toppings! I used what I had in the fridge which included roasted sweet potatoes and purple onion, kale, and fresh rosemary. To further this fall theme I decided to chop 1/2 red apple then microwaved it for about 1 minute to soften. Sprinkled that on top then into the oven. Broil for about 3-4 minutes careful not to burn.
