As a health nut, I am dedicated to eating next-level food everyday for life! That being said, I do like to treat myself once and a while, and when I do, this is one of my favorite dishes to make!

Cauliflower is such a great substitute for traditional pizza crust. This recipe offers all the deliciousness of a deep dish without the heaviness of white bread and cheese!

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups ground raw cauliflower, grated
  • 3/4 cup almond/coconut flour or gluten-free all-purpose flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 3 flax or white chia eggs (3 tbsp seed + 9 tbsp water + let sit)
  • 2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tsp ¬†sea salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • Pizza sauce + toppings of choice! (by all means, if you eat cheese go for it!)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Chop the cauliflower, and pulse the florets a little in a food processor OR just use a cheese grater.
  3. Mix “egg” ingredients together and set it aside for a few minutes, perhaps stirring once.
  4. Mix all of the rest of the crust ingredients together and form into a ball.
  5. Press the “dough‚ÄĚ ball down onto a pizza stone or baking tray lined with parchment paper that has been ¬†greased with coconut or olive oil. Gently mold the dough into whatever shape your heart desires, and make sure it is no more than 1/4 inch thick; otherwise, it won’t cook all the way through.
  6. Bake the crust by itself for about 20-25 minutes. It should begin to brown around the edges.
  7. Remove it from the oven and decorate it with pesto or tomato sauce, then veggies galore!
  8. Note: If you add pre-roasted veggies, the second bake time will take less time than if using raw veggies (about 10 minutes).
