Anyone who knows me, know that I LOVE PIZZA!!
Unfortunately, my quest for a healthier lifestyle would definitely eliminate pizza, but my unending desire for pizza was ever present. I even tried the “Burrito Crust” pizza, but it was not quite satisfying – the burrito crust was a little too soggy for my taste… Woe is me!!
Until now!!! EUREKA, I have discovered a 100% vegetarian pizza; even the crust is made with a vegetable – who knew – Ta Da – CAULIFLOWER pizza crust!!
The cauliflower crust pizza is not my original recipe; however, I made a few tweeks to my liking… and, I would like to share this awesome delight with all of you.
Things you need:
Finely Ground Pepper
Your Favorite Pizza Toppings
Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees. Grate enough cauliflower for 2 cups.
Remove the excess moisture from the grated cauliflower by heating it in a pan over low heat for about 10 minutes – you do not want to brown the cauliflower.
Set the cauliflower aside to cool. Beat 1 egg in a bowl.
Add 1 cup of mozzarella cheese to the beaten egg – mix well.
Add the cooled cauliflower; 1/2 teaspoon onion power; 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder; and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; to the egg / mozzarella mixture – combine thoroughly to form the “crust”.
Step 6: Shape the cauliflower mixture (crust) into a ball.
Step 7: Place the ball on parchment paper and shape into a round (approximately 10″) or square pizza crust. NOTE: be sure to use parchment paper or the cauliflower crust may stick to the pan and tear after baking.
Step 8: Bake the cauliflower crust for 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 9: Spread pizza sauce and your favorite toppings on the baked cauliflower crust and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Step 10: Remove from Oven and Enjoy!!!
I hope you enjoy this Cauliflower Crust pizza as much as I did – please leave a comment, share, and follow.
