Great Groceries: Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Posted: Updated:

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Pizza without all the guilt. Make sure you really squeeze the extra water out of the cauliflower so the crust holds together.

1 head cauliflower, broken into florets

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 egg, beaten

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/8 tsp. salt

1 to 2 cups tomato sauce

toppings of your choice: pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, onions, tomatoes, green pepper, etc.

Preheat oven to 400º.

Pulse batches of raw cauliflower florets in a food processor, until it resembles rice. In a large skillet, cook cauliflower in olive oil for about 5 minutes, or until cauliflower is softened. Transfer to a clean, thin dishtowel. Wrap up cauliflower in dishtowel, twist it and squeeze excess moisture out.

In a large bowl, mix strained rice, egg, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Press the dough out about 1/3-inch thick onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Add sauce, your favorite toppings and cheese. Return pizza to oven, and bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes, just until the cheese is hot and bubbly. Slice and serve immediately.
