You Won’t Believe How It’s Made
Do not let the ingredients of this totally grain-free pizza crust scare you away, as the results look and (more importantly) taste spectacular. This may be made from cauliflower, but nobody has to know that and they certainly won’t be able to guess!
Prep Time: 20 min • Bake Time: 50 min • Serves: 8
1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 10-inch pizza pan with parchment paper.
Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor and blend until they are a paste-like consistency. You may need to do this in 2 batches.
Transfer the cauliflower paste to the center of a clean kitchen towel, draw up the ends, and twist the towel to remove any excess water.
Add the prepared cauliflower paste to a bowl and use a fork to mix in the remaining ingredients, just until well blended.
Place the mixed dough onto the center of the prepared pan and cover with plastic wrap. Use a rolling pin to evenly spread the dough out, getting as close to the edges as you can. Discard plastic wrap.
Bake the crust for 45–50 minutes, or until it begins to brown.
Cooking Pizza: Top with your favorite toppings and bake again at 350°F for 8–10 minutes, just until cheese is melted and toppings are hot.
