Gourmet Cauliflower Pizza Crust

: 20 min
: 1 hr
: Easy

When making this crust, I prefer using a box grater to grate the Cauliflower. I find that the food processor can over process the Cauliflower leaving it mushy and watery.

By:

Ingredients
  • 1 large head of organic Cauliflower
  • 8 oz of Goat Cheese
  • 2 Organic Eggs
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp dried Oregano
  • 2 tsp dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 6-8 Tbls Organic Pizza Sauce
  • 2 cups Organic Mozzarella Cheese
  • Toppings of your choice: Mushrooms, Olives, Spinach, Peppers, Onions, Zucchini, Garlic, etc
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 400º
  • Step 2 In a large bowl, grate one large head of cauliflower using a box grater. This takes a little more time, but the end result is a better crust.
  • Step 3 Add the goat cheese, eggs, onion, garlic, oregano, basil, and salt to the grated cauliflower. Mix together well until it is all incorporated. This may take a few minutes.
  • Step 4 Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Place the cauliflower mixture on top of the paper. Begin to spread it out with a spatula. Take a second sheet of parchment paper and place it on top. Now you can smooth out the crust to the desired thickness, about 1/3 of an inch thick.
  • Step 5 Remove the top piece of parchment paper and form an edge around the crust with your fingers.
  • Step 6 Place in oven for 20-30 minutes until the crust begins to turn golden brown and the edges start to get dark.
  • Step 7 Pull out of the oven and top with your favorites organic pizza sauce, mozzarella and your favorite toppings.
  • Step 8 Place back in the oven and cook for approx. 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown.
  • Step 9 Let set for a few minutes before cutting.
