I know what you’re thinking– cauliflower pizza crust, eww. But, maybe you haven’t tried the right cauliflower pizza crust or maybe you haven’t realized the full benefits of cauliflower.
Cauliflower is full of minerals and high in fiber. It’s layered with antioxidants and is super low in calories, which means you can eat a lot of it without gaining weight. Overall, it is just one of those foods that does a lot for you and can be made to taste better than it smells. Plus, you can still top your pizza with the good stuff.
1 head cauliflower, stalk removed
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until fine. Steam in a steamer basket and drain well. (I like to put it on a towel to get all the moisture out.) Let cool.
In a bowl, combine the cauliflower with the mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, salt, garlic powder and eggs. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet and spread into a circle, resembling a pizza crust. Bake for 20 minutes.
Add desired toppings and bake an additional 10 minutes.
