cauliflower pizza crust

Pizza is a staple in every sane person's diet, but sometimes it's not exactly healthy, and mostly because the carbs start to add up...

Cauliflower, however is an excellent substitute for quite a few less-than-healthy, high-in-carbs foods, like popcorn, potatoes, rice, and bread.  So, today, I bring to you...



Ingredients:

2 cups grated cauliflower
2 eggs
2 cups shredded cheese

We have made the crust with two kinds of cheese, gluten and dairy free Supremo Queso Chihuahua (Mexican melting cheese), and mozzarella.

Instructions:

Grate 2 cups of cauliflower.
 Mix it into a bowl with the eggs until blended.  You may want to use your hands for the best result.
 Add the cheese and mix until blended.
 Cover your pizza pan with parchment, and flatten the "dough" to the edges of the pizza pan, like so...
Bake on 450° F for 15 minutes.  It will be golden brown, and, when cool, firm enough to pick up.

You can either top the crust immediately, or cool and refrigerate the crust for later.  (On ours, we put our usual tomato sauce, pepperoni, black olives, mozzarella, and a little parmesan.)

After the pizza is topped, return it to the oven (still 450° F) for about 10 minutes.
And enjoy!
 Pin it!
Don't forget!  If you try a recipe you find here, come back and let me know if it worked out!

  3. As an advocate of gluten-sugar-diary-redmeat free living, this looks amazing!! It's been a long time since I've had a slice of good pizza, so I have to give this a try. Thanks so much! (And by the way, cute blog changes! Loving the horse picture. ☺)

      (Thank you! Heheh, I'm partial to that one myself.)

  4. I'm so glad you posted this! Recent circumstances have made it necessary for me to steer away from white carbs as much as possible, so this substitute is very timely, in addition to looking rather awesome. I'm excited to try it out!

    1. I love accidental wonderful timing. :) I'm glad you ran across it! I must say, it is exceptionally scrum-diddly-umptious.

  5. Looks wonderful! Did grating the cauli create a ridiculous mess though? I made cauliflower "rice" one time by chopping and food processing and it was such a mess that I'd hesitate to do it again. Maybe grating would be better?

    1. Thanks, Becky J! It tasted just as good. ;) It was a little messy, I'll admit that, but considerably less than I thought it would be. I've never used cauli in a food processor, so I don't know what that's like, but grating it wasn't too bad.

  6. Awesome! I need more of these kind of recipes, I'm on a detox (although I do have to say I miss bread a lot)
