Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe by Lisa Bryan

It’s a simple blend of cauliflower, eggs, cheese, and a few spices that’s flattened and baked into a golden crust. Freeze it for later or top it off with fresh ingredients for a healthy dinner recipe. While you can buy pre-made cauliflower pizza crusts, corn starch or potato starch tends to be the main ingredient in these products. So by making it yourself, you’ll know your crust is made from fresh ingredients without unnecessary additives.

Here’s How to Prep Each Type Of Cauliflower for Keto Cauliflower Crust Pizza :

Fresh Cauliflower

If you’re using fresh cauliflower, you’ll need 1 large cauliflower head (about 2 pounds, which yields 1 1/2 pounds of florets).

  • Remove the florets from the head of the cauliflower, and cut them into even sized pieces.
  • Grate the florets using either the grater attachment on a food processor or box grater.
  • Microwave the cauliflower rice for about 4-5 minutes to soften it.
  • Drain the cauliflower rice by using a nut milk bag and squeeze it until all the moisture is out.

Frozen Cauliflower Florets

You’ll need 1 1/2 pounds of frozen cauliflower florets.

  • Thaw the frozen cauliflower in the fridge overnight.
  • Grate the florets using either the grater attachment on a food processor or box grater.
  • Drain the cauliflower by using a nut milk bag and squeeze it until all the moisture is out.

Pre-riced Cauliflower

You’ll need approximately 5 cups of pre-riced cauliflower.

  • Microwave the cauliflower rice for about 5 minutes to soften it.
  • Drain the cauliflower by using a nut milk bag and squeeze it until all the moisture is out.

Servings 4 Servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 lbs Cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese or 1/3 cup soft cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove the cauliflower florets from the stem or use frozen and thawed cauliflower florets. Grate them using a food processor or box grater.
  • Add the cauliflower rice to a microwave safe bowl, cover, and microwave for 4-5 minutes to soften. Alternatively, you could saute the cauliflower rice in a pan on medium heat on the stove for 8-10 minutes. Then let it cool to the touch.
  • Transfer the cauliflower rice into a nut milk bag or thin kitchen towel. Drain the cauliflower by squeezing it until all the excess moisture is out. Squeeze as hard as you can!
  • Place the drained cauliflower rice in a large mixing bowl. Add the cheese, egg and seasonings. Use your hands to mix everything together to form the pizza dough.
  • On a parchment lined baking sheet, press the dough dough down into an even circle. The diameter should be around 9 inches. If you have a pizza stone, that's even better and will produce a crispier crust.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until slightly golden, then remove from oven. You could also bake for 20 minutes and flip the crust over, then bake an additional 5-10 minutes for an even crispier crust.
  • Add the toppings and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
