  • Supplies:
  • Ingredients: serves four
    • 1 head of cauliflower
    • 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese
    • 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
    • 1/4 tsp sea salt
    • 1/8 tsp back pepper
    • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
    • 1 tsp dried basil
    • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
    • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
    • 1 whole egg (or egg replacer/1 tbsp flaxseed ground with 4 tbsp water)
    • pizza sauce (or pesto) and toppings of your choice
  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Wash and chop one head of cauliflower into florets.
  • Place the cauliflower florets into a food processor or blender and pulse for about 30 seconds. It should look like snow.
  • Microwave the riced cauliflower in a covered bowl for about 3-5 minutes. Allow to cool.
  • Once the cauliflower is cool, place it in a cheesecloth, nutbag, or tea towel and squeeze out as much water as you are able.
  • Put the cauliflower to a medium size bowl and add mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, basil, garlic salt, pepper, salt, and red pepper flakes. Stir together.
  • Add one egg (or egg replacer) and stir until well blended.
  • Form the dough into a ball and roll out onto baking mat/parchment paper over a pizza stone.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  • Take out of the oven and allow it to cool.
  • Once the crust has cooled, cover with your favorite pizza sauce (marinara, alfredo, or pesto) over the crust.
  • Load it with veggies (and other favorite toppings) and bake an additional 5-7 minutes, until the edges slightly brown.
  • Expect the crust to be soft. It will firm up as it cools. Cut and serve from pizza stone or pan to avoid crumbling.
  • Enjoy!
