Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I like pizza but really who doesn’t??  But to eat pizza on a regular basis would not be a good thing and not healthy.  But in moderation it is great.  I really like pizza and sometimes I have one and well most times I make this crust and make my own healthy clean eating pizza.

Who would ever think that cauliflower made into a crust could be good?? But not only is it good it is great in my books.

So, lately I have had lots of interest in how I put this crust together.  I originally got a recipe off the internet but over time I have tweaked it a bit and made it my own.

I am now finally getting around to posting the recipe!  Really, there are LOTS of variations of this recipe to be found but I have finally figured out the one that I like the best.  You can really do lots to this crust to make it your own like add cheese to it or omit the coconut flour if you don’t like it to name a few.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

This recipe makes 1 serving

Ingredients:

135g of cauliflower stemmed, chopped and steamed
1 whole egg
4 egg whites
2 TB of coconut flour
1 clove a garlic crushed (I love garlic, but you can omit this)
Seasoning of choice – I like to use pepper and a some Mrs. Dash Italian

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

I steam the cauliflower for about 3 minutes in the microwave and then “rice” it or just mash it up in a bowl till it looks sort of like rice.  A fork works well for this.  Then I let it cool for a bit.  You could also do this ahead of time and put it in the fridge until you are ready to make the crust.

To it I add: 1 Whole egg, 4 egg whites, 2 tbsp of coconut flour and a clove of crushed garlic. Plus whatever seasonings you would like.

All together…

Give it a good stir to incorporate all the ingredients together.

When mixed it will become a little thicker but not real thick like a pizza dough.

Shape the “dough” into a round shape on a piece of parchment paper that has been laid onto a pizza pan or cookie sheet.  I used my pizza pan.

When you have your dough shaped place another piece of parchment paper lightly on top and put into the oven at 425 degrees for 18 – 20 minutes.

You will know when it is done it will be firm to the touch and puff up a bit and turn a golden brown! YUM!

Then it is time to put your toppings on!  The best part!

Toppings

For my “sauce” I took a couple tablespoons of Organic Tomato paste and mixed it with 1oz of baked sweet potato to make my “sauce” it was delicious!

I usually don’t go too heavy on the toppings just a few work nicely!

Then put your pizza back into the oven for about 10 minutes to warm up the toppings.  Keep an eye on it so you do not burn your masterpiece!

Out of the oven cut it up and onto a plate!  I topped mine with a little green hot sauce!  Yum!

So there you have it!  A clean and healthy pizza for when the craving hits!  Give it a try…you will love it!
