Description

Craving pizza but needing to be careful with carbs, dairy, and/or saturated fat? Look no further than this incredible Dairy-Free Cauliflower Pizza. Unlike most cauliflower crusts that rely on heavy amounts of cheese for structure, this crust bakes up crisp and sturdy with just cauliflower, cornstarch, and egg.

Ingredients

  • 24 ounces frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 eggs
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce (or marinara sauce)
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese (or shredded “pizza blend”, dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning

Directions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  2. 2Line a large pizza stone or baking sheet with parchment paper, and spray liberally with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. 3Place the bags of frozen riced cauliflower into the microwave. Thaw according to package directions.
  4. 4Set a large fine-meshed sieve over the sink. Turn the riced cauliflower into the sieve and strain
  5. 5Lay a large clean dish towel flat on a countertop.
  6. 6Carefully turn the drained riced cauliflower into the center of the dish towel.
  7. 7Gather the towel into around the riced cauliflower, creating a sack.
  8. 8Hold the towel sack over the sink, and firmly squeeze the riced cauliflower to remove as much water as possible. Continue squeezing until no more water drips out.
  9. 9Transfer the squeezed cauliflower from the towel to a large mixing bowl.
  10. 10Lay two sheets of paper towels on top of the riced cauliflower. Press down firmly to remove any last traces of water. Discard the paper towel.
  11. 11 Season the cauliflower with the garlic powder, salt, and black pepper, to taste. Add the egg and the cornstarch.
  12. 12Using a large fork, mix vigorously until the riced cauliflower is thoroughly coated in the egg and cornstarch. It will be slightly wet and pale yellow in color.
  13. 13Divide the cauliflower into two equal mounds on either side of the baking sheet.
  14. 14Using clean hands, gently pat each mound into a circle approximately ½” thick and 7-8” in diameter. Make sure the mixture is packed firmly together, with no loose pieces of riced cauliflower.
  15. 15Transfer the baking sheet to the bottom rack of the oven.
  16. 16Bake the cauliflower crusts for 30-33 minutes, until browned on the edges and slightly golden on top.
  17. 17Open the oven door and quickly brush the surface of each cauliflower crust with a thin layer of egg white. There will be some egg white left unused.
  18. 18Close the oven and continue baking the crusts for 4-5 minutes longer.
  19. 19Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  20. 20Spoon a generous 2 Tablespoons of pizza sauce onto the center of each cauliflower crust. Use the back of a spoon to spread it into an even layer, leaving a ½” border around the sauce.
  21. 21Sprinkle an equal amount of cheese over each cauliflower crust.
  22. 22Sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the cauliflower crusts.
  23. 23Return the baking sheet to the oven.
  24. 24Bake for 10-11 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden.
  25. 25Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  26. 26Allow the cauliflower crust pizzas to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes.
  27. 27Slice and serve.
