Recipe

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.

Directions

  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.
