Directions

Mealthy Tip

The cauliflower crust is easily customizable: Add a tablespoon of almond meal to the crust with the cheese to give a slightly nutty flavor. Add a pinch of crushed chili flakes if you want a bit of heat, or a teaspoon of lemon zest for a little acidity.

This recipe is soooo yummy, and the cauliflower actually holds together like a real pizza crust, as opposed to crumbling like other cauliflower pizza crusts I've tried. There is definitely a hefty portion of cheese in the crust, so I actually just didn't put any cheese on top - just red sauce and veggies - and this was a lovely weeknight dinner!

This successfully tricked my toddler into eating vegetables, which is the highest compliment that I could possibly give. When I made this, I was worried because the cauliflower smells gross, but the smell clears after initially steaming it, and the pizza doesn't have a strong cauliflower taste at all. I've tried recipes like this in the past, and they always fell apart. I think it was because I didn't get enough moisture out of the dough.

I've made a few of these cauliflower crusts before and this recipe holds up really well - the key to a good crust is getting as much moisture out of the cauliflower rice as you can before mixing it in with everything else, a masticating juicer works great for that. Next time I have my gluten sensitive friends over, I'm excited to whip this up for them.

I have a love hate relationship with gluten free pizza crust, but this isn't bad at all! Instead of using dried oregano and basil, I used a basic store-bought Italian seasoning blend. Next time I make this I want to modify to make vegan (without egg and cheese).

I topped with this pizza with fresh, whole basil leaves and tomato sauce. It was delicious, loving the low carbs!
