So I've tried to make a cauliflower pizza crust several times about three years ago, and just felt like it was a bit of a downer. It took a loooong time to make, was fairly labor intensive, and didn't seem like it was worth it. It was pretty good, but not amazing. However I've seen so many cauliflower pizza crust recipes online nowadays that I felt like I had to give it another shot.
Previously I had cooked the cauliflower, and then processed it. The recipe I decided to try processes first, and then cooks. I think this may end up with a better result.
- 1 head cauliflower (2-3 cups processed cauliflower)
- 1/4 cup parmesan
- 1/4 cup mozzarella
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 500. Process cauliflower until finely ground in a food processor. Place cauliflower into a large bowl and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Set aside and let cool briefly.
Place cauliflower in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze to ring out excess water. The more you can do this, the better your crust will be. I actually used a nut milk bag to get out all the water- cheese cloth would work well too. This step is CRUCIAL to having good texture on your pizza.
Mix with other ingredients into a dough. You will have to squeeze the mixture together with your friends so it sticks together better. Place on well oiled baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, add your desired pizza toppings (sauce, veggies, etc) and bake again for another 5-10 minutes.
