Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I have one word for you. Wow. That’s it.

Cauliflower pizza crust does not sound appealing but you know what they says, “don’t judge until you’ve walked in a person’s shoes.” How can you judge before you try? It’s absolutely delicious. I wasn’t sure how Evan was going to react to the idea of “cauliflower” being the base of pizza but thankfully he’s open to trying new things and he loved it! Score 🙂

What You Need:

  • 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 
1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp italian seasonings
  • 
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 
pizza sauce
  • toppings of your choice

What You Need to Do

To rice the cauliflower, cut florets into chunks and pulse in a food processor until you see rice-like bits. You could also use a cheese grater to produce the tiny pieces. Do not over process or else it will turn to mush.

Microwave the riced cauliflower in a bowl for 5-8 minutes. If you don’t have a microwave (like me) spread the cauliflower onto a baking sheet for about 10-15 minutes on 400. But keep a close eye on it as it can turn dark very quickly. Remove from microwave or oven and let cool.

To make the crust: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup riced, cooked cauliflower, 1 egg and your cheese. Next, add Italian seasonings, crushed garlic and salt. Making sure everything is well mixed, place your “dough” on the cookie sheet and pat out a 9″ round. Be sure not to press it too thin as it’s easy to create holes.

Bake your dough at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven. Add sauce, cheese, and your favorite pre-cooked toppings to your pizza. Place pizza under broiler just until cheese is melted, be sure to keep an eye on it!

I modified this recipe a tad by using only parmesan cheese and I only uses oregano as a herb.

Seriously, give this recipe a shot. You will not regret it. Its booming with flavour!

Enjoy!
