Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Gluten-Free and Grain-Free

 

Produces 4 servings

                                       

1                     Head of Cauliflower

1                     Egg

1/2 cup         Soft Goat Cheese

1/2 tsp          Oregano

1/2 tsp          Garlic Powder

1/2 cup         Marinara Sauce

1 cup             Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1/4 tsp          Salt

 

Directions: 

 

  1.  Pre heat your oven to 400 F

  2.  Wash your cauliflower and pulse it in a food processor until you get a rice like texture. You will want to have about 4 cups of riced cauliflower.  

  3.  Place all of the riced cauliflower onto a clean dishtowel. Pull up the sides of the towel and create a little sac for the cauliflower. Squeeze the little sac that you have made out of the towel and try to  squeeze out as much water as you can from the cauliflower. The more water you squeeze out the better your pizza crust will stay together, so try to squeeze out as much water as you can.

  4. In a large bowl combine the cauliflower, one beaten egg, goat cheese, oregano, garlic powder and salt.

  5. Place your mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  6. Use your hands to form the dough into a rectangle with raised edges.

  7. Put your crust in the oven for 30 minutes or until the crust starts to turn golden brown.

  8. Top you pizza crust with whatever you like.  I enjoy marinara sauce, mushrooms, slices of baked chicken, red onions, spinach and cheddar cheese.

  9. Once you have put the toppings on the pizza put it back into the oven for about ten minutes, or until the topping are cooked and the cheese has melted.

  10. Let your pizza cool and enjoy!
