Cauliflower pizza crusts seem to be popping all over the place as an alternative to traditional pizza crusts. I really like pizza. I really like cauliflower. I had to try them together! I really like the substitute crust and will definitely be making it again. It was easy to put together and, after a few minutes out of the oven to cool and set, could be eaten like your favorite crispy crust.
You will need:
- 1 small cauliflower
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 t pepper
- 1 T minced onion
- 1 T minced garlic
- 1 T parsley (or oregano or basil)
- 1/2 c shredded cheese
Then you will…
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (this is a must since the cauliflower has to cook off water; you don’t want it to stick).
- Cut the cauliflower into florets, removing the stem/greens and the core.
- Use a food processor to chop the cauliflower until it resembles small grains.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the cauliflower with the other ingredients.
- Spread the “dough” on the parchment paper until just over 1/4-inch thick.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 350. Increase the temperature to 400 and bake another 15 minutes until turning golden brown.
- Top with cooked ingredients and return to oven until hot through.
