Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 30 mins 45 mins 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Pizza toppings of your choice (e.g., marinara sauce, cheese, vegetables, meats)

Special Notes: You can use a food processor or a cheese grater to make cauliflower rice. Make sure to squeeze out any excess moisture from the cauliflower rice before using it in the crust.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until they resemble rice-like grains. You should have about 4 cups of cauliflower rice.
  3. Transfer the cauliflower rice to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes, or until tender. Let it cool for a few minutes.
  4. Place the cooked cauliflower rice in a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This step is crucial to avoid a soggy crust.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the cauliflower rice, shredded mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and beaten egg. Mix until well combined.
  6. Transfer the cauliflower mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and shape it into a round pizza crust, about 1/4-inch thick. You can also make individual crusts if desired.
  7. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy around the edges.
  8. Remove the crust from the oven and add your desired pizza toppings. Return the pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Once cooked, remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Serving Suggestions

This Cauliflower Pizza Crust is perfect for those following a gluten-free diet or anyone looking to incorporate more vegetables into their meals. Serve it with your favorite pizza toppings, such as marinara sauce, cheese, vegetables, or meats. It's a great option for pizza nights, parties, or anytime you're craving a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional pizza crust. Enjoy!
