Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I’ve seen several cauliflower crust recipes and thought it would be worth trying. I found a simple recipe and tweaked it a little bit. What I ended up with was an amazing smelling (it smelled just like a big cheese puff!) and tasting concoction. I dressed my pizza up margherita-style with a little tomato sauce, fresh basil, and mini mozzarella balls, but you can top your pizza any way you like.

Cauliflower Crust

1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp crushed garlic

1/2 tsp garlic salt

EVOO (optional)

1. To “Rice” the cauliflower, remove stems and leaves and cut florets into chunks. Run through food processor so entire head is pulsed and looks like grain. {Do not puree} Microwave riced cauliflower for about 8 minutes or until cooked through. This should make about 3 cups of riced cauliflower. Reserve the remainder for another use.

2. Preheat oven to 450*

3. Mix together 1 cup riced cauliflower, egg and cheese. Add oregano, garlic, and garlic salt; stir until well combined.

4. Transfer to a cookie sheet, spread and pat mixture out into a 9 inch round. (I used a rectangular baking stone) Brush top with EVOO to help with browning.

5. Bake for 15 minutes.

6. Remove from oven. Add sauce, cheese and toppings. Place under broiler for a few minutes until cheese is melted.

*Toppings should be pre-cooked since the pizza is only broiling for a few minutes.
