Pizza Crust made from cauliflower? Sounds like a strange combo but I assure you that this recipe is delicious, easy and gluten and grain free ;). I have been meaning to attempt this recipe for quite a while now and am glad that I finally did. I made this for myself one night and had to make my husband Brian another meal for dinner since he wasn’t too excited about eating cauliflower crust lol. Needless to say I only got one piece out of it. He demolished it. I rest my case.
You can top the pizza with any ingredients of your choice. I went with goat cheese and variety of veggies. I hope that you enjoy this as much as we did!
Cauliflower Crust Pizza
(Gluten & Grain Free)
- 1 cup raw, grated cauliflower (or chopped in a food processor)
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup shredded almond cheese (or light mozzarella cheese)
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tbsp chopped parsley
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Saute the cauliflower for a couple of minutes on a medium heat until translucent (optional).
Cover a baking sheet or pizza stone with parchment paper or spray the sheet with coconut oil.
In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg, mozzarella and spices. Press evenly into the shape of a pizza crust (make sure it is not too thick) on the baking sheet or pizza stone if you have one available.
Bake the crust for 12-15 minutes. You may turn over once if desired.
Remove the crust from the oven and add pizza or pasta sauce and any toppings such as veggies, lean meat and cheese . I used pasta sauce, mushrooms, peppers, basil, spinach, cherry tomatoes and goat cheese.
Place under the broiler, on high heat, until cheese is melted about 5 minutes or so. Just keep an eye on it.
