Cauliflower Crust Pizza

So, I’ve made cauliflower crust pizza a handful of times, but holy molyyyyy, one has never tasted this good, or looked so pretty. As a health + foodie lifestyle blogger, sometimes you just need to trust your gut and go rouge on your own recipe…

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower (about 7 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons Pizza Flavor God
  • 1 tablespoon Ranch Flavor God
  • 1-2 eggs depending on how large your cauliflower head is
  • Toppings of choice + Sauce of choice; we used
    • 1 yellow bell pepper
    • 1/4 fancy-schmancy salami
    • Sweet cherry tomatoes
    • and two sauces; organic tomato sauce and organic pesto sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups “Pizza” shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tablespoon crushed or minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil or healthy oil of choice
  • Fresh basil, sliced into tiny pieces

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Use a food processor to break up cauliflower until it becomes the consistency of rice
  3. Lay cauliflower out on a large cookie sheet and COMPLETELY dry it out. This is extremely important or your crust will be mooshy and super soft. Use paper towels, a towel, and pop it in the oven for a few minutes; whatever it takes for liquid to be absorbed
  4. Once dry, add into a bowl and mix in with FG seasonings + garlic + egg(s) + oil until it becomes a spreadable consistency
  5. Our “dough” made three medium sized pizzas; keeping them on the smaller side helps crust get crispier. Spray two cookie sheets with healthy oil before adding dough OR preferably, add dough to pizza stone(s).
  6. Once your dough is spread, place in the oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until crust is as crispy as can be, without burning. Check the middle and adjust heat accordingly.
  7. Once crust has reached desired crispiness, add sauce, toppings, and cheese. Sprinkle a little more pizza + ranch flavor god on top
  8. Put back into the oven and bake about 6-10 minutes, or until toppings are lightly browned and cooked to your pleasing!
  9. Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes, and use a pizza cutter to slice, and enjoy!
