Ingredients

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

  • 1.5 pounds cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese or 1/3 cup soft cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste

Pesto Chicken Pizza

  • 1/3 cup pesto sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded chicken
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 cups (packed) baby spinach
  • 2 garlic cloves minced

Margherita Pizza

  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce
  • 4 oz mozzarella ball sliced
  • fresh basil leaves
  • red pepper flakes (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the cauliflower florets from the stem or use frozen and thawed cauliflower florets. Grate them using a food processor or box grater.

  • Add the cauliflower rice to a microwave safe bowl, cover, and microwave for 4-5 minutes to soften. Alternatively, you could saute the cauliflower rice in a pan on medium heat on the stove for 8-10 minutes. Then let it cool to the touch.

  • Transfer the cauliflower rice into a nut milk bag or thin kitchen towel. Drain the cauliflower by squeezing it until all the excess moisture is out. Squeeze as hard as you can!
  • Place the drained cauliflower rice in a large mixing bowl. Add the cheese, egg and seasonings. Use your hands to mix everything together to form the pizza dough.
  • On a parchment lined baking sheet, press the dough dough down into an even circle. The diameter should be around 9 inches. If you have a pizza stone, that's even better and will produce a crispier crust.

  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until slightly golden, then remove from oven. You could also bake for 20 minutes and flip the crust over, then bake an additional 5-10 minutes for an even crispier crust.
