20130424 Cauliflower Crust

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…

  1. 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).
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets, removing the stem/greens and the core.
  3. Use a food processor to chop the cauliflower until it resembles small grains.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together the cauliflower with the other ingredients.
  5. Spread the “dough” on the parchment paper until just over 1/4-inch thick.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes at 350. Increase the temperature to 400 and bake another 15 minutes until turning golden brown.
  7. Top with cooked ingredients and return to oven until hot through.
