Cauliflower Pizza Crust

A number of our gym members know that Friday night is typically family pizza night for us. So, this recipe is something we were looking for to make our pizza night a little healthier. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, there are not many options for pre-made cauliflower pizza crust, especially in our area. I looked at a couple different recipes and this seems to be a fairly easy one, so let’s give it a shot.

Here is what you will need to prepare this cauliflower pizza crust recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 Head of cauliflower
  • ½ Cup Shredded Mozzarella (low fat)
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

To Prepare Your Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Follow these steps:

1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2) Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in the food processor until a fine rice texture.

3) Steam in a steamer basket and drain well.

4) Then drain by placing the cauliflower into a fine dish towel and wringing the excess moisture out. Let cool.

5) In a bowl, combine the cauliflower with the mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, salt, garlic powder and eggs. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet and spread into a pizza shape. Bake for 20 minutes.

6) Add the desired pizza toppings and bake an additional 10 minutes.
