How to Make a Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Pizza is one of the most loved foods out there, but unfortunately, it’s also (generally) among the least healthy that a person can eat. For a healthier (and tasty) take on this worldwide favorite, how about trying a cauliflower crust instead? It’s an easy switch that will get healthier foods in your diet, and still tastes great too! If you’re taking baby steps to better food, this is a great way to start.

Cauliflower Crust for Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sized head of cauliflower
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp almond meal
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp finely grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  • pre-cooked pizza toppings of your choice

Directions

  • Preheat your grill or oven to 450F.
  • Chop up the cauliflower florets until you get a coarse, rice-like texture (you can use a food processor if it's easier). Place it into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave (without adding water, as the cauliflower will release moisture) for 5 minutes. Once it's ready, pour the cauliflower out onto a clean kitchen towel and (once it's cooled off a little), wring out as much moisture as possible.
  • In a bowl, combine the cauliflower, salt, oregano, garlic powder, almond meal, parmesan (if using) and olive oil. Make a little well in the cauliflower, crack the egg in, beat the egg with a fork, and then incorporate it into the other ingredients.
  • Form the dough into a ball and place it on a greased, parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread the dough out into a round, crust-shape (roughly 1/4inch or more thick) and bake it in the preheated oven for about 11 to 14 minutes.
  • Remove it from the oven, top your pizza with whatever toppings you feel like, and then bake it again for 4-5 minutes!
