Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Today is definitely one of those Mondays for me. Stayed up a little too late last night and now can’t seem to snap to attention. Hopefully the coffee will help. Now on to the pizza. There have been lots of cauliflower crust pizza recipes popping up all over the place and I have been wanting to try one after the success of the cauliflower rice and Creamy Cheesy Cauliflower Mash, but I have noticed that most of them have a ton of cheese, usually a cup. In my opinion all though this probably tastes great, it defeats the purpose to some extent because you add so many fat and calories from the cheese. After experimenting a bit, I found I was able to get a pretty crispy crust using just 1/4 cheese and a whole egg. Also just a quick note, I tried it with egg whites and it didn’t really work and nonfat cheese didn’t really work either. I topped mine with an additional 1/4 cup cheese (2 points),1 oz of pepperoni (4 points), sliced tomatoes, peppers, and onions. For half the pizza that added 3 points, or 6 points total for 1/2 the recipe.

Ingredients for Crust

  • 1/2 large cauliflower
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup low fat mozzerella cheese
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp fennel
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower and garlic until it small and looks like rice. You may want to do this in a couple of batches for a better consistency.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes until the cauliflower is cooked through. Do not add any water.
  4. Let the cauliflower cool for about ten minutes. Then mix in the egg, cheese, and spices to combine.
  5. On a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper, press down the cauliflower crust until it is very thin. The thinner it is the crispier it will be when cooked.
  6. Cook for 15-25 minutes depending on the thickness of the crust. Mine took about 20 minutes to get nice and crispy.

7. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and return to the hot oven until the cheese melts to your liking. You could also top with salad or just eat it plain.

    Yummy! I think I will use eggbeaters – any reason not to use them?

    I made this tonight, and I really liked it! I topped mine with a bit of low fat mozzarella, and after it was out of the oven, a teaspoon of homemade black olive tapenade, and some fresh basil leaves. It was great!

    Love your recipes! Will be trying quite a few. Would love to see a ‘Save to Recipe Box’ option and also a Printer fFiendly option as well. I don’t need the photos and notes when I print – just the recipe itself and the PPV’s.

    Made this last night for dinner with my best friend, then we proceeded to make (but not eat any after all they are for breakfasts and lunches over the next few weeks) mac and cheese muffins, meatloaf muffins, lasagna muffins and last but not least ham and egg muffins not what you call them. They all turned out amazing and now are in the freezer bagged and ready to be taken out the night before. Thank you for this site and your amazing recipes it has given me lots of ideas.

    Could you give me an avg as to how many cups of cauliflower to use? The cauliflowers we get here are pretty small.
