I came across this recipe a few times for a pizza crust made out of forking cauliflower and finely decided to give it a forking try. About a hundred forking people on the web have written the forking same cauliflower recipe. I followed the one from closetcooking.com because many comments were posted about how the crust came out and a few tips were posted too. Many people including the blogger found you had to be very careful with the crust sticking to the pan and someone suggested a silicone mat is what you need for more success with this recipe.
I used the silicon mat and possibly didn’t get the crust as crusty as I would have from my regular pizza pan. I don’t know if I would have had the problem of the crust sticking like others had.
Anyway the crust does come out delicious and anyone would think it’s tasty. I topped the cauliflower crust with home made pizza sauce (my marinara thickened with some tomato paste). Some cheese, seasonings, fresh basil and a drizzle of olive oil. I would totally make this recipe again and maybe try it using my real pan.
Ingredients makes about an 11x14in. Pizza crust so that’s about 4 servings
1 cauliflower medium size grated
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup mozzarella shredded
1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano grated

Now mix in all the cheeses, egg, seasonings salt and pepper.

Put back in oven till cheese is melted.
Serve up and enjoy!
