Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pizza. It is one of those comfort foods that I crave. Sometimes I want a yummy  sauceless pizza with prosciutto, goat cheese, fig jam and caramelized onions. Other times I crave a ham and pineapple pizza loaded with cold jalapeno slices while other times it is a saucy, sinful pepperoni pizza with extra cheese! I love it, but I feel so full after i eat it. I’ve heard the hype about cauliflower pizza crust so I decided to experiment. The result was yummy and it was easy to make. Give it a try, you might not want it all the time but if you want pizza without the flour carbs it is a great alternative!  Enjoy!

For an individual pizza ( 9″) – If you want to make a bigger pizza to fit a traditional pizza pan, double the recipe.

1/2 head cauliflower

1 egg

1/2 C cheese (I used half cheddar and half mozzarella )

(Note: You can leave the cheese out as well or substitute parmesan as well)

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp pink himalayan salt

1 tsp dried oregano

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely chopped.

Place cauliflower in a steamer on the stove and steam 15-20 min, until soft. (you can do this in the microwave as well)   Place cauliflower in a towel, and squeeze out excess water so it is completely dry.

In a bowl, mix egg, cheese, seasonings and cauliflower until well-combined.

On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread cauliflower dough out until it resembles a pizza round. Bake for 40 minutes.

Top however you want and bake in a 450°F oven for 7 minutes or until cheese and toppings have baked.
