Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Easy, Delicious Cauliflower Pizza Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s a fun food, but unfortunately not very healthy. What if you could enjoy the fun of pizza while making it ultra healthy? Imagine, a pizza you don’t have to feel guilty about eating! Not much is healthier than cauliflower, one of the best cruciferous, anti-cancer vegetables that exist! And yes, the marriage of cauliflower and pizza crust IS a reality and it’s delicious! There are probably 100 different recipes for cauliflower pizza online and I’ve tried a few. This one is my own “spin”. It’s not fussy or time consuming but the result is wonderful. I like to saute some onions, cipollini, shallot or red, plus mushrooms. I chop garlic and add sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper, fresh basil, oregano, capers, basically any plant that you enjoy! You can top it with daiya cheese or your own homemade cashew cheese (here’s my recipe for Vegan cashew cheese). When the pizza is cooked add some red chile flakes if you want a little kick. Please let me know how you enjoy it and what varieties you come up with.Buon Appetito!
- 3 cups organic cauliflower riced in food processor
- 3 Tablespoons organic flax seeds ground
- 9 Tablespoons purified water – to make flax “egg”
- 1 cup organic almond flour
- 1 tsp Himalayan sea salt
- 2 tablespoons organic nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp organic oregano
- 1/2 tsp organic garlic powder
- Preheat the oven to 400 F.
- Mix together the ground flax seeds and water, place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes until thickened.
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Place the cauliflower florets into a food processor, and pulse until the consistency is rice- like. Don’t turn it into soup.
- Place the cauliflower rice in a pan over medium-low heat and dry cook for about 5 minutes or until most of the liquid is cooked off. Set aside to cool.
- In a large bowl mix cauliflower rice, flax eggs, almond flour and the rest of the ingredients with your hands or a large spoon. Add more almond flour if the mixture is too sticky, or more water if too dry.
- Take about 1/3 of the dough, place it on your parchment-lined baking sheet, and shape into a personal pizza crust. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
- Bake for about 20-30 minutes until light brown, crispy on the edges and dry in center.
- Add your choice of sauce (I typically purchase an organic pizza sauce) and toppings, and bake for a further 10- 15 minutes.
