Who’s ready to shed a few pounds this season! cauliflower pizza is great because it’s low-carb and contains no flour what so ever.

You will be pleasantly surprised as to how delicious and different this pizza is I promise you will be a keeper. The crust is made of cauliflower, cheese, and eggs and from there, you can customize the pizza any way you like to make your favorite type of pizza.

After processing the cauliflower, place it in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave it on high for 4 minutes. After removing it from the microwave allow it to cool for at least 5 minutes, then place the cauliflower in a kitchen towel and squeeze away.

Make sure to get all the water out of it, like every last bit! I squeezed my water how so hard I ended up with an amazing ball of cauliflower. remember, the trick to making a perfect cauliflower crust is to squeeze out as much liquid as possible out of the cauliflower.


THE RECIPE:

Ingredients:
  • 1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower - should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil or rosemary minced (or dry)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano minced (or dry)
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  2. Remove the stems from the cauliflower and cut into chunks, Place the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse it until it resembles the texture of rice. If you don't have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater or chop it very finely.
  3. Microwave the processed cauliflower uncovered in a microwave safe bowl for approximately 4-5 minutes on high. Remove it from the microwave and allow it to cool for at least 4-5 minutes (trust me don't rush this step!). After the cauliflower is slightly cooled, place it in a kitchen towel and squeeze all the liquid out of it. Be sure to squeeze as much liquid as humanly possible.
  4. Combine the cooked cauliflower, egg, garlic, cheese, and seasonings. Stir until a dough texture forms. Spread the cauliflower mixture out onto lightly greased parchment paper or a pizza pan in the shape of a pizza crust.
  5. Bake the crust for approximately 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven), or until the crust is golden and crispy. I cooked mine for approximately 15 minutes. After the crust is golden remove it from the oven and add your toppings, I used marinara sauce and cheese for a simple margarita pizza.
  6. Place the pizza back in the oven but this time turn on the broiler, bake for about 2-5 minutes until the cheese melts. be sure to keep an eye on it because the broiler can burn the cheese quickly.
  7. Slice and serve warm , enjoy!
