Somehow Halloween was just about a month ago, Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now the rush is on toward Christmas. I feel like I blink and an entire day goes by.
And I don’t know about you, but I never get enough done. I’ve got a list of things to bake, lots of gifts left to buy, and more decorations to put up than I care to admit. This year, I feel more behind than ever.
Still, I love to come home to a comforting meal that I can share with my family at the end of the day, and sometimes my friends too since during the holidays we all love to entertain. I try to make entertaining easy by shopping at Walmart. They have everything I need to make the holidays brighter from cards and wrapping paper to gifts to food.
I always pick up a few Red Baron® Thin and Crispy Pizzas that I can bake up at a moment’s notice whether I suddenly need to entertain or I just need a quick and tasty dinner. With the thin crust, premium cheese, and hearty toppings, everyone loves these pizzas.
I still like to serve something alongside the pizza that I have made myself. In the warmer months a salad is my go to, but in these chilly winter months when we all crave comfort food, I make Cauliflower Alfredo Dipping Sauce.
This way we all still get a heaping serving for good for you vegetables but we feel like we’re eating an indulgent, creamy sauce. While there are a few steps to making this sauce since you have to prep the vegetables, cook them, and then blend, I like to make a big batch and stick it in the freezer right alongside the pizza. That way I can cook the pizza in the oven and reheat the sauce on the stove or even in the microwave.
Be sure to stock up on Red Baron® Thin and Crispy Pizzas this holiday season. What will you make to go with your pizza dinner?Print
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large head cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 large or 2 small onions, diced
- Cloves from 1 head of garlic
- 2–3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
- ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Heat a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the olive oil. Follow with the onions and garlic. Sauté for about 5 minutes until beginning to brown, stirring frequently. Add the cauliflower and sauté for 5 additional minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add enough stock to come about half way up on the cauliflower. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook until the cauliflower is very tender.
- Blend the sauce using a high powered or immersion blender. If using a blender, you may need to puree it in batches since it is hot. Do not fill the blender more than halfway full. Blend until smooth.
- Return to the pot. Add additional stock if the sauce is too thick. Add cheese, salt, pepper. Cook until hot.
- Sauce may be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days or frozen in freezer containers for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave or a pot until piping hot.
