Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza ~ Delicious and Gluten Free! ~ Our Cozy Den

I’ll admit, when I was diagnosed with PCOS, I cried a little. Okay, a lot. Not because I was devastated by my illness, but because I was grieving my old lifestyle — you know, the one where I ate whatever I wanted. Including my favorite food: pizza. I could literally eat pizza all day, every day, and not get tired of it. So I was ecstatic when my friend made me some cauliflower crust pizza! It was SO good! {Not as good as Papa John’s, but really good!}

So today I’m here to share the recipe with you!

Ingredients:

For each pizza crust, you need the following ingredients. I keep making crusts until I use up all the cauliflower, so I usually end up with 5-6 crusts from a head of cauliflower. I freeze the rest for future use.

  • cauliflower
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp each of oregano and garlic powder
  • dash of salt
  • pizza sauce
  • additional mozzarella for topping
  • any other toppings you like (pepperoni for me!)

Instructions:

  1. First, chop up your cauliflower really really small. Like rice-sized. You can use a food processor, but I just use my Pampered Chef Food ChopperCauliflower Crust Pizza ~ Delicious and Gluten Free! ~ Our Cozy Den
  2. Cook the flower in the microwave for 8-10 minutes, until it is soft.
  3. In a bowl, mix together 1 cup of the cauliflower with the egg, 1 cup of mozzarella, and spices.
  4. Put the mixture on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Pat the glob with your fingers and push outwards until it is about 3/8ths of an inch thick, and shape into a circle (or whatever shape you desire). Cauliflower Crust Pizza ~ Delicious and Gluten Free! ~ Our Cozy Den
  5. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes.

    At this point, the crust will be sort of soft, almost like an omelette.
  6. Remove from oven. If you are freezing for future use — stop after this step, let cool, then freeze in a large freezer safe ziploc bag. If you are eating now, continue:
  7. Add pizza sauce and toppings.
  8. Reduce oven temperature to 350° and bake until cheese is melted. Cauliflower Crust Pizza ~ Delicious and Gluten Free! ~ Our Cozy Den
