Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, riced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (additional, for topping)
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (e.g., pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, olives)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a pizza stone or baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To create the cauliflower rice, remove the stems and leaves from the cauliflower head. Cut it into florets and pulse them in a food processor until they resemble rice-like grains.
  3. Place the cauliflower rice in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for about 5-6 minutes or until it becomes soft. Let it cool for a few minutes.
  4. Using a clean kitchen towel, squeeze out as much moisture as possible from the cooled cauliflower rice. This step is essential to ensure a crispy crust.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the cauliflower rice, egg, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix the ingredients thoroughly.
  6. Transfer the cauliflower mixture to the prepared pizza stone or baking sheet. Spread it out into a circular shape, forming a thin and even crust.
  7. Bake the cauliflower crust in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until it turns golden brown.
  8. Remove the crust from the oven and spread pizza sauce evenly over the surface.
  9. Sprinkle an additional 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce, and add your favorite pizza toppings.
  10. Return the pizza to the oven and bake for another 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Note: Cauliflower Crust Pizza is a fantastic alternative for those following a low-carb or gluten-free diet.
