I 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.
This pizza would be great served as an appetizer or small plate at a dinner party. Hope you enjoy it!
Basic Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Author: Dish by Trish
Servings: 2 people
1 1/4 cups riced cauliflower* (about 1/2 large head)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 medium eggs
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
*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.
Preheat the oven to 450℉. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Place riced cauliflower into a medium bowl and microwave for 6 minutes.
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.
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!
