Cauliflower Crust Pizza

So we were very sad that pizza was no longer going to be a part of our life. So naturally we try to find a way. Here is a veggi full way to have our favorite toppings. We made one giant pizza and it had to be eaten with a fork. But we believe next time we will do individual pizzas and we may be able to ear with our finders. Now we called it Indian pizza (so not true) so our 4 year old would not wig out about the difference. Spike loved the crust (I avoided the melted cheese parts). We used tomato, mozzarella and peperoni for our toppings. All in all, quite yummy and we will so be trying this again. Instructions bellow or visit the site.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe
  • 1 small head of cauliflower, leaves and stems removed
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Manchengo sheep milk cheese (or Mozzarella)
  • 2 eggs
  • cornmeal, to dust the pizza stone
  • for pizza
  • 1 jar marinara or pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup sheep milk cheese
  • 5-8 basil leaves
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Chop cauliflower florets into chunks. Pulse the cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles a fine grain, like rice or couscous. Pour cauliflower into a large bowl. Add herbs, and salt, then cheese and eggs.
  3. Spread a tablespoon or so of cornmeal all over a pizza stone. Place the cauliflower mixture (note- this won't resemble a ball of dough) on the middle of the stone and use your hands to press it into a circle about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 then an additional 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Crust will be done when it turns golden brown in color.
  5. Remove crust from oven. Change oven temperature to 450 degrees. Add pizza sauce, cheese and whatever toppings you would like, then bake again for about 5 minutes or until cheese on top is melted.
