Cauliflower Crust Pizza
There are a few different ways to make a cauliflower crust. This one (like many of our recipes here) was developed in house by our dietitians. The other great part of this crust is that it can be used in other ways—a crust for a quiche, breakfast casserole, or as a topping for shepherds pie. Enjoy this guilt free cauliflower crust pizza!
Cauliflower Crust Pizza
A guilt free low carb pizza crust that you will enjoy time and again.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Rinse the cauliflower, remove the leaves, & separate the florets from the stem.
Place the florets in a large food processor and process on low for a few minutes until cauliflower is a "rice" consistency.
Transfer the riced cauliflower to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes.
Add garlic, egg, 1/2 cup cheese, and seasonings to the food processor. Pulse a few times until the ingredients are combined.
Remove the cauliflower from the microwave and transfer onto a cheesecloth or a thin tea towel. The cauliflower will be very hot, so be careful!
Gather the cauliflower into a ball in the middle of the cloth. Twist the top of the towel together and squeeze all the water out of the cauliflower. It is VERY IMPORTANT to squeeze all the water out of the cauliflower. The more water you leave in the cauliflower, the more soggy your crust will be. You should get at least 1 full cup of water, if not more.
After you squeeze the dickens out of the cauliflower, add the egg/garlic mixture and stir until it is combined.
Transfer the cauliflower mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can use a pizza stone for this; however, it will be more likely to stick to the stone and cook unevenly. A baking sheet will cook more evenly resulting in a more consistent crust.
Flatten the cauliflower crust with a metal spatula sprayed with cooking spray (or use your hands) until a thin pizza crust forms. Don't worry about spreading it too thin...the thinner the better with this recipe!
Place in a hot oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the cauliflower crust from the oven and top with your desired toppings, including reserved cheese if desired.
Return the cauliflower crust with your topping to the oven for an additional 15 minutes.
