Ingredients

  • Crust
  • 2 cups riced cauliflower about ½ head
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Olive oil spray or 1 teaspoon olive oil for greasing
  • Toppings
  • cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil
  • Crushed red pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Prep a baking sheet or pizza stone: Line a baking sheet or pizza stone with parchment. Grease the parchment with olive oil spray or rub on regular olive oil. 
  • Prep cauliflower: If using whole cauliflower, remove the stems and leaves from the cauliflower and chop the florets into chunks. Add to a food processor or blender and pulse just until the texture is similar to rice. If you don’t have a food processor or high powered blender, you can grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater or chop it. Another (much faster option) is to buy riced cauliflower. 
  • Cook cauliflower rice: Sauté cauliflower “rice” in a non-stick skillet over medium heat and cook until translucent, approximately 6-8 minutes. (You can use the microwave for this as well. Just place cauliflower in an uncovered microwave-safe bowl and cook for 8 minutes.)
  • Mix cauliflower dough: In a bowl combine the cooked cauliflower with garlic, mozzarella cheese, egg, basil and oregano. The cheese will melt a bit and this is okay. 
  • Spread dough to make the crust: Spread dough out evenly on your parchment lined baking sheet and form into a circle. You’ll want it to be about 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch thick. The pizza should be about 9-10 inches in diameter.
  • Bake: Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden, crispy on the edges and cooked through the middle.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and set oven to broil.
  • Add toppings: Top with pizza sauce and cheese. You can also add additional toppings, but be careful not to add too many heavy toppings as you don’t want to weigh down the crust.
  • Broil: Broil the pizza for 5 minutes, or until the toppings are hot and the cheese is melted. Allow the pizza to cool for 2-3 minutes then cut and serve immediately. Serve with fresh basil and crushed red pepper.
