I found this recipe while searching Pinterest for low carb ideas. It was on Mom, What’s For Dinner?, a great source of gluten-free recipes. While the texture was not just like a traditional pizza crust, if you can get past that desire for a chewy dough, the flavor with this cauliflower crust is fantastic.
We topped the crust with a little red sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni. We followed the directions and made a 9 inch round. Next time, we’ve make smaller ones, 4 – 5 inches. The large one was just a little too difficult to move from the baking tray a plate.
I can see using this crust for things other than pizza. It’s kind of like a potato pancake, maybe top it with goulash.
for 1-9 inch crust, an average head of cauliflower will make 2 or 3 crusts:
1 cup riced (or grated small side) steamed cauliflower
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 450
- Combine the riced cauliflower, cheeses, egg, oregano, garlic, garlic powder, and salt
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper; brush paper with olive oil
- Transfer the cauliflower mixture to the prepared pan, using your hands, shape into a 9 inch crust (or multiple smaller crusts)
- Bake for 15 minutes
- Add desired toppings and broil for 4 minutes
