Have you ever made a cauliflower pizza crust? This grain-free crust option is absolutely delicious!
I’ve been experimenting with different grain-free recipes for some of my favorite foods. It can be really challenging to completely change how you eat. Because of that, I wanted to make the challenge a little easier. Eating grain-free has prevented me from eating a few of my favorite foods. And I really wanted to change that! Tonight I was in the mood for pizza and wanted to try a grain-free crust. So I decided to get some inspiration for a good grain-free, crust and I created this one.
Some cauliflower pizza crust recipes call for use of the microwave, but I decided not to do that with this version. It was definitely a hit with my taste buds! And since it was so good, it is going into my menu rotation.
It is naturally gluten and grain-free…and really yummy too!
Cauliflower Pizza Crust
This cheesy pizza crust is absolutely perfect for the grain free crowd!
You can add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of unrefined sea salt, but I omitted it and the pizza was plenty salty...especially if you are going to use uncured pepperoni or sausage.
- Cauliflower- 1/2 lg head
- 2/3 cup mozzarella cheese (grated)
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp basil
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1 clove of garlic or 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp Himalayan sea salt
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a food processor grind the florets of the cauliflower only until it is the consistency of rice.
- In a small saucepan place the ground cauliflower and 1/4 cup of water and cook for 5-8 minutes to soften.
- Allow the cauliflower to sit and cool for 20 minutes.
- Once it has cooled enough to handle, place the cauliflower into a clean dishcloth and wring out as much water as you can (this is an important step, otherwise your crust will be mushy!)
- Add the strained cauliflower to a medium mixing bowl.
- Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Form into a ball.
- Place the ball on a baking pan lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper that has been sprayed with olive oil.
- Spread out the dough until it's in a thin layer.
- Bake the crust for 10 minutes (you will see the crust starting to brown)
- Remove the crust from the oven and top with sauce and your desired toppings.
- Bake for an additional 10-13 minutes.
