How often do you hear the word pizza and cauliflower in the same sentence? If you’re like me, it’s probably not that often. Well, that is about to change! This pizza crust is made from cauliflower and goat cheese! Cue the choir singers and can I get a Hallelujah!
I love to make my own pizza crusts. I love to play with different recipes. This pizza crust is particularly exciting to me because I have a 2 1/2 year old that loves pizza but isn’t a huge fan of munching on cauliflower. Problem solved! In addition, there is no flour in this recipe. So for those of you who don’t play well with gluten and grains, this recipe is a winner, winner pizza dinner!
Cauliflower Pizza Crust
- 4 Cups Raw Cauliflower
- 1 Egg, lightly beaten
- 1/4 cup Goat Cheese
- 2 Tbsp Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 tsp Dried Oregano
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until a rice like texture is achieved. Bring a large pot with a couple inches of water to a boil and add the cauliflower. Cover and steam for 5 minutes. Drain the cauliflower into a sieve then transfer to a thin dish towel. Then squeeze the excess moisture out. Let it sit a minute if it’s too hot to handle. Once you’ve squeezed out as much liquid as possible transfer the cauliflower to a large bowl and stir in the egg, cheeses and oregano. Press the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Once the crust has been pre-baked add any toppings you like. Then pop back in the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes.
Steam in the boiling water and transfer to a sieve. Do you have one of these? You need one, I promise you’ll use it all the time!
Plop the interesting creation onto a kitchen towel….
Now squeeze, squeeze, squeeze all the water out.
Combine the remaining ingredients and form into a pizza dough shape on a parchment lined pan. I went with a square-ish shape. It just felt right.
Bake until just starting to brown.
Add your favorite toppings and bake another 5-10 minutes. I went for tomato sauce, vegetarian sausage and mozzarella cheese.
Just look at that crust! Miss Ava devoured this pizza and that makes this Momma so happy!
