Pizza made with a cauliflower crust is so full of flavor and unbelievably easy to make. I have no idea why I waited so long to make this.
This pizza is packed with fiber, protein, gluten-free and is low carb. You can easily make this vegan by replacing the cheese with nutritional yeast or vegan cheese and use a flax seed/water mixture in place of the eggs.
Many thanks to my friend Nina who shared her recipe with me. I used fresh basil and a mixture of white cheddar, mozzarella and provolone cheese for the topping.
Serve it with a tossed salad and you have a great meal. Mmmmm mmmmm delicious! I will definitely be making it again 🙂
Have you ever made cauliflower pizza??
I’d love to hear what your favorite toppings are!
Cheese Pizza with Cauliflower Crust
Makes 2 rectangular pizzas – each pizza can be cut into 8 pieces
- 1 large cauliflower, cleaned and cut into florets
- 1 cup grated cheese, mozzarella or Parmesan or combine both!
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup almond or potato flour
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Shredded cheese
- Fresh basil
- Roasted vegetables
- Sliced tomatoes
- Bell peppers
Preheat oven to 450°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and coat each one lightly with olive oil. Set aside.
Place half the cut cauliflower in a glass bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the cauliflower. Pulse batches of the cauliflower in a food processor until a rice like texture forms.
In a large bowl mix the cauliflower with the grated cheese, beaten eggs, almond flour and seasonings. Mix well using your hands.
Divide the dough in half and place each mound on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten to form a rectangle. It should cover most of the baking sheet.
Bake the pizza crust for 15 minutes. I used the bottom and middle rack and switched them halfway.
When done, top with fresh basil and cheese and bake for another 6 minutes until the cheese is melted and browned.
