Cauliflower Pizza

In an effort to do this whole “Paleo” thing, I came up with a cauliflower pizza recipe. We love our pizza, so I didn’t want to deprive us of that! This is definitely the best cauliflower pizza crust we’ve had yet. I tried a few variations, and this is the winner! The thing with this pizza is that it’s delicious, but it’s not the white-flour-pizza-dough pizza. So, we just accepted it for a different type of pizza, and it was perfect! Hey, it’s worth a shot!

I started out by blending the cauliflower until it was course, but not pureed (like couscous). Then, I microwaved the cauliflower for 5 minutes so it softened a bit. Once the cauliflower was ready, I mixed it with the other ingredients and formed the pizzas on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.

I baked the crusts for 30 minutes. I like them as crisp as possible. That seemed to work!

I chose basic pizza toppings, but you could honestly top with whatever you’d like! I baked the pizzas for another 10 minutes to melt the toppings. Then I broiled the pizzas for 1 minute just to make the cheese crispy. I topped with some fresh basil for a pop of color. I must say, these were delicious! Let me know what you think!

Cauliflower pizza
Makes 2 pizzas

1/2 large head cauliflower (about 2.5 cups ground)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
2 Tbsp grated parmesan
1 egg
1/2 tsp Italian herbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Pizza Toppings
1 Tbsp sauce per pizza
1/2 Roma tomato per pizza, sliced
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella per pizza
Sliced red onion
Sliced basil

Preheat oven to 400° F. Cut cauliflower into chunks and place in food processor. Pulse until course (like couscous). Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 5 minutes.

In the meantime, add the rest of the ingredients to a large bowl and mix together until well combined. Add the cauliflower and mix well. Divide dough in half. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place each half of dough onto the baking sheet and press into rounds, about 1/4 inch thick. Bake crusts for 30 minutes or until browned and firm. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Broil for 1 minute to crisp up the cheese. Top with fresh basil and enjoy!
