Cauliflower Pizza Crust

By Sugar Free Team on


Ingredients 

  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic, crushed
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (use the real stuff!)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg


Instructions 

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a sheet pan with oiled parchment paper.
  2. Slice cauliflower into florets, steam for 10 minutes. Once cauliflower has cooled, place a few at a time in a food processor and pulse until it resembles rice. **
  3. Cool the cauliflower then wring it out in a cheesecloth or clean towel to remove as much water as you possibly can – this will help the crust stick together!
  4. Once you've removed as much water as you can, mix with cheeses, egg and seasoning. Mix until dough is formed then press onto the lined sheet pan. Bake for 9-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Remove from oven, add your toppings, then pop it back in for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. Let it cool for 5 minutes before serving so that the crust can firm up.


Tips & Notes 

  • Suggested toppings: fresh tomato sauce, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and ham are our favorites, but it’s your choice!
  • If your dough seems a bit runny you can add either more parmesan cheese or a bit of flour.
