Cauliflower Crust Pizza
The absolute best cauliflower crust pizza recipe. This crust is so good, you won't even miss traditional pizza crust!
- 1 head cauliflower chopped
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
- 2 tbsp parmesan cheese freshly grated
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
- 1/4 cup pepperonis sliced
- 1/4 cup basil leaves fresh
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet or stone with parchment paper; set aside.
Add the chopped cauliflower to your food processor and pulse until fine. You'll need about 2-3 cups. Then transfer cauliflower to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 4-5 minutes on high power, or just until softened; let cool. Once the cauliflower has cooled, dump it into a cheesecloth and squeeze out as much water as possible.
Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Stir in lightly beaten eggs, mozzarella, parmesan, and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the cauliflower mixture into a rectangle onto the prepared baking sheet or in a circle on the stone. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and bake for 20-25 minutes, until dry and golden in color. Use the parchment paper to flip the crust over and bake again until the other side is nice and dry and golden, about 10-15 minutes more.
Remove cauliflower crust from the oven and top with pizza sauce, cheeses and pepperoni or your favorite toppings. Place back into the oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 5-10 minutes. Top with basil, Italian seasoning and/or crushed red pepper flakes, if desired. Serve immediately.
