Cauliflower Pizza Crust
  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  1. Prepare the cauliflower: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Chop the cauliflower into florets. Place ⅓ of the florets into a food processor. Give it a few quick pulses and then process for about 10 seconds until the cauliflower resembles rice kernels. Pules a few more times until the cauliflower begins to look paste-like. Transfer the cauliflower rice to a large bowl. Repeat this process 2 more times with the remaining florets.
  2. Cook the cauliflower: Place the cauliflower in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 3 minutes until soft. Let the cauliflower cool for a few minutes. Then, drain the excess moisture from the cauliflower by placing it in the middle of a kitchen towel, gathering the towel into a ball, twisting, and wringing out the moisture.
  3. Prepare the crust: Place the cauliflower back into the bowl and add the seasonings and eggs. Mix well with a large spoon. Line a pizza pan with parchment paper and empty the cauliflower mixture onto the center of the pan. Use your fingers to flatten the dough and form it into a circle, pressing it out to edge of the pan until it’s about ¼-inch thick.
  4. Bake the crust: Place the cauliflower crust into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until the edges are browned. Take out of the oven and using an extra large spatula(s), carefully lift the crust from the parchment paper and flip it over back onto the parchment-lined pan. See notes for an alternative method. Bake for another 10 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
If you don’t have an extra large spatula, try the "flip and peel" method. Take the crust (and accompanying parchment paper) off of the pan and set aside on a heat-safe surface. Place another sheet of parchment paper on the pan, pick up the crust (parchment paper attached) with your hands, and carefully place the crust open side down on the new parchment paper. Then, peel off the parchment paper from the top of the crust.
