Basic Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza on Dr. Oz

Love pizza but the dough…. not so much. Cheesy cauliflower crust is literally one of the best things I’ve discovered recently.

I made the pizza several times with a few variations. The way I like it best is chock full of veggies including mushrooms and onions. Some people add cheese to the actual crust and then more as a topping but I like it best added it to the crust only to save room for my veggies. Personal choice.

 

Another recent discovery is a pizza sauce that I love – Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce.

This pizza would be great served as an appetizer or small plate at a dinner party. Hope you enjoy it!

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups riced cauliflower* (about 1/2 large head)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or non-dairy cheese)
  • 2 medium eggs or flax eggs
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450℉. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Place riced cauliflower into a medium bowl and microwave for 6 minutes.
  3. Using pot holders, remove from microwave. Add cheese and flax eggs to cauliflower bowl and mix well. Stir in basil and garlic. Place on baking sheet and form into a 9-inch round using a spatula or your hands.
  4. Bake crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and add sauce and toppings to crust. Broil for 7-10 additional minutes, depending on toppings you may need to broil longer. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*To rice the cauliflower, remove stems and leaves and chop florets into chunks. Place in food processor and pulse until grainy and course (be careful not to over-process or it will become soft and pureed). You can also grate using a cheese grater if you don't have a food processor.

P. S. Heading to Costa Rica in a couple of days! Super excited. Ever been? Any tips or recommendations?

    Ooh… this is quite a different take on pizza crust!  It sounds and looks really great, Trish!  And I must agree that that happens to me, too–forgetting to take an after picture because I’m too busy eating it up :-)  Good job on this!

    I also saw this on Pinterest and have been meaning to try it. I love pizza-far more than it loves me! And I know how it feels to forget to take photos, how lucky that you had a photographer on site!! Perhaps I will try this tonight loaded with fresh veggies…to offset the cocoa and chili encrusted rack of lamb with strawberry balsamic sauce I made last night!! Have a great time in Costa Rica and don’t forget to point and click!!

    My client just told me about this yesterday. Can’t wait to try, will I be grating forever? My food processor is small. CR- have fun, haven’t been but so want to.
