A grain-free alternative to traditional pizza crust, that you can pick up with your hands!
- 1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower – should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil (crush it even more between your fingers)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (crust it even more between you fingers)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- optional a few shakes of crushed red pepper
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1 egg
- optional 1 tablespoon almond meal
- Desired amount of sauce, cheese for topping, and other toppings.
- Place a pizza stone in the oven, or baking sheet if you don’t have a pizza stone. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a cutting board, place a large piece of parchment paper and spray it with nonstick cooking oil.
- Wash and throughly dry a small head of cauliflower. Don’t get one the size of your head unless you are planning on making 2 pizzas. Cut off the florets, you don’t need much stem. Just stick with the florets. Pulse in your food processor for about 30 seconds, until you get powdery snow like cauliflower. See above photo. You should end up with 2 to 3 cups cauliflower “snow”. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover. Microwave for 4 minutes. Dump cooked cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and allow to cool for a bit before attempting the next step.
- Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, wrap it up in the dish towel and wring the heck out of it. You want to squeeze out as much water as possible. This will ensure you get a chewy pizza like crust instead of a crumbly mess.
