Cauliflower pizza crust

Yesterday I tested out the cauliflower pizza crust I’ve been reading so much about.  I had my doubts about it, but it turned out amazing!  The crust had such a good consistency.  It was crispy around the edges and you could pick up a slice without it falling apart.

Crust recipe:

1 cup cauliflower rice

1 cup mozzarella

1 egg

seasonings (oregano, garlic powder, salt)

To rice the cauliflower, I chopped it up into little chunks and tossed it in my food processor until it’s about the size of rice.  If you do not have a food processor, you can use a grater.  Put the cauliflower rice in a bowl and microwave it for 8 minutes.  Do not add water!

Add a cup of mozzarella, beaten egg, and seasonings to the cauliflower rice.  Stir it up.  Put the dough onto a baking sheet and press it out into a 9inch circle.  Make sure it’s not too thick.  Also make sure to grease the pan down so it won’t stick.   I brushed some olive oil on top of the crust as well to make it more crispy.   Pop it in the oven at 450 degrees for around 15 minutes or golden brown.

This is what your finished crust will look like.  Now top it with whatever you’d like!  I put some sauce (tomato paste with a little water and seasonings), mozzarella, parmesan, bacon, and ham.  Make sure to precook the toppings.

Pop the pizza bake in the oven on broil for 3-4 minutes until the cheese has melted.  Enjoy!
