Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza/24 Carrot Kitchen

Looking for a tasty low carb pizza?  Here it is!  I actually made and photographed this a few months ago.  However, it is a recipe I plan on making several times over the next few months during the holiday season.  You know, to add some veggies in our lives during the hustle and bustle festive season.  Plus, it is fairly quick and easy to assemble.

The edges of the pizza tended to get very brown, so keep an eye on it in the oven. However, it wasn’t burnt and tasted great.

If you have never had this you are probably wondering – does the crust taste like cauliflower?  Well, everyone is different, but I will tell you my experience.  My husband, Ben, insists he detests cauliflower.  When I made this Cauliflower Crust Pizza, I didn’t tell him the crust was made with cauliflower.  It was only after he gobbled up several pieces and exclaimed he loved the pizza that I revealed the truth.  Ha, ha!  Anyway, he and I both believe that while the crust doesn’t taste exactly like a wheat crust, it is really delicious!

What a great way to add more veggies to your life and your kids’ lives.  This pizza proved to be a challenge to photograph though.  Maybe when I make it again, I will take more photos and update this post. :)

While researching recipes,  I noticed that some recipes said the cauliflower should be squeezed of all excess water (after grating).  I did not find that to be necessary with my pizza, but in the future it may be.  You can judge and decide if it is necessary.

This is a healthier pizza using cauliflower instead of flour in the crust.
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups grated cauliflower (about ½ large head)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 and ½ cups part skim mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper
  • Jarred tomato sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray non stick spray on a pizza pan or line a pizza pan with parchment paper.
  3. Place grated cauliflower crumbles in a microwavable bowl and microwave for about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove and let cool.
  5. In a large bowl, mix the egg, 1 cup mozzarella, 1 tablespoon parmesan, and pinch of salt and pepper. Once combined, smooth out into a 10 inch round (pizza shape) on the prepared pizza pan. Spray the cauliflower “dough” lightly with the non stick spray and bake for 10-15 minutes, until lightly golden.
  6. Take out of the oven and spread some tomato sauce around the cauliflower “dough” and next spread some mozzarella and then parmesan cheese over the top.
  7. Bake in the oven until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Optional: top with fresh chopped basil and then serve.

    I have yet to try cauliflower crust pizza after my obsession with chickpea crust and pancakes. Have you tried any vegan cauliflower crust pizza recipes before? I’m looking for a good one to try and I love pizzas especially with beer crusts!

  1. […] Enjoy this soup nice and hot!  It heats up nicely the next day also.  Here’s a revelation – Ben likes this too and had many bowls of this soup. That’s the Ben who claims he doesn’t like cauliflower very much.   That’s two cauliflower recipes this year!  The other was the cauliflower pizza. […]
