Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

What you need to make the cauliflower pizza dough is as follows:

Riced cauliflower: either make your own or buy it already made.-purchased part-skim mozzarella cheese, dried oregano, basil, and egg.

Several suggestions for toppings:

  • pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • red pepper smashed with fresh basil

Remarks and Alterations

Riced Cauliflower: This dish steals the spotlight. Don’t be scared if you’re unfamiliar with the world of cauliflower rice! All you have to do is put the cauliflower florets in your food processor and pulse them until they are the consistency of rice. If you don’t have a food processor, you can manually prepare rice with a cheese grater or blender. Pre-riced cauliflower is also available, but make sure it is fresh rather than frozen, since the latter has too much moisture and will not combine well with the crust.

Dairy-free: You can try leaving out the cheese or use dairy-free mozzarella. Although some people have tested this dish without the cheese and it worked just fine, I personally prefer it with cheese.

Vegan: You can use a flaxseed egg or a vegan egg substitute in place of the egg in the crust. Although I haven’t tried it yet, it ought to work!

Toppings: Since the pizza will only be broiling for a little while, feel free to top it with whatever you desire. Just make sure the toppings have already cooked. Remember that the cauliflower pizza crust is not as solid as most other dough-based crusts, so avoid adding too many things to it. Maintain simplicity.

Saute cauliflower rice: Cook the riced cauliflower in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until it turns translucent. Drying out the cauliflower is greatly aided by this crucial step.

Mix the ingredients for the crust in a big basin. Add the cooked cauliflower, egg, shredded cheese, dried oregano, and dried basil. It’s okay if the cheese melts a little bit during this process.To make the crust, grease or line a pizza stone or baking sheet with parchment paper and olive oil. Form the dough into a circle by spreading it out evenly on the baking sheet. It should have a thickness of roughly 1/4 inch.

Bake crustBake at 400ºF for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden, crispy on the edges and cooked through the middle.

Add toppings – Remove the crust from the oven and set the oven temperature to broil. Top the crust with pizza sauce, cheese and any other toppings you’d like.
BroilBroil the pizza for 5 minutes or until the toppings are hot and the cheese has melted. Allow the pizza to cool for 2-3 minutes before cutting and serving.
