CAULIFLOWER CRUSTED PIZZA (New & Improved Crust)

This pizza is absolutely packed with vegetables. When I first created the crust it was not firm enough to pick up so you had to use a knife and fork to eat it. Now I have adjusted the recipe and you can pick it up without out it falling apart- you can really get that enjoyment of biting into a pizza.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Ingredients

1 large head of organic cauliflower
2 cups organic full fat cheese from pastured animal, grated I like to use a sharp cheddar
4 organic eggs from pastured hen
1 tbsp organic mixed herbs of choice. I like to use oregano, thyme and basil
1 tsp himalayan salt
1 tbsp organic extra/virgin coconut oil

Method

1) Roughly chop cauliflower- you will need 6 cups measured after processing so you may have to guess a bit but it will be about one large cauliflower. Remove florets from the cauliflower head and blend in a food processor until the consistency of rice
2) Heat a large pan and add the coconut oil. Fry on med-high heat for about 10 minutes. Put the cauliflower into a large bowl and into the fridge to cool
3) Combine the cooled cauliflower, eggs, cheese, salt and herbs. Using your hands, spread mixture onto some baking paper and form a round shape. Alternatively you could use a cookie tray and make a square pizza
4) Bake for 15-20 minutes at 220 ºC or until brown. Let the pizza cool (about 30 minutes) before adding you favourite toppings
5) Bake for about 20 minutes at 200 °C

    I really liked this however i had problems with the base sticking to the paper. I had to make it twice and had problems both time..

      Hi Linda,

      I haven’t had this problem. Are you cooking it for long enough? It should be golden brown. It pays to get a good quality baking paper, sometimes the cheaper brands are not so good. You could try putting some oil on the paper too. 🙂

    I’m going to try this wonderful recipe. Especially, since grains aren’t user friendly towards me, this is perfect. I’ll let you know the taste test results! smile

    Is the cheese crucial to the base recipe? Or would it hold fine without it? 🙂

  5. Love this healthier version. Can’t wait to try it.
