Cauliflower Pizza Crust

1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets

1 egg, slightly beaten

½ cup mozzarella, shredded

¼ cup grated parmesan

½ teaspoon dried oregano

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

Preheat the oven to 400°. Preheat a pizza stone in the oven for one hour. Set aside parchment paper, and a sheet pan or cookie sheet if you don’t have a pizza stone

  1. In a food processor, pulse chop the cauliflower until it’s finely ground.
  2. Steam the cauliflower, in a steamer basket, until is cooked through and soft, approximately 10 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature
  3. After it’s cooled, place the cauliflower in a tea towel and squeeze the moisture out of it. Do this a few times to make sure it’s as dry as possible
  4. Combine the cauliflower, egg, mozzarella, oregano, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture onto the parchment paper until it’s approximately a 10 inch circle, or a rectangle, or other shape you’d like
  5. Keep it on the parchment paper, and bake until lightly golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. You can do this on the pizza stone, or a sheet pan (which does not have to be preheated)
  6. Remove from the oven, and place your favorite pizza toppings on top, and bake for another 7-10 minutes, or until done to your liking

Notes:

  • You can use a box grater if you don’t have a food processor
  • You can cook the cauliflower in a microwave, instead of steaming. This could take 5-8 minutes

Possible Cauliflower Crust Toppings
