Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

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

1 teaspoon oregano or a mix of Italian Seasonings

salt & pepper

Directions set oven to 450 degrees

    Okay, I must say this was a fantastic recipe. My wife and I destroyed the entire pizza. The toppings were fantastic, I slightly sautéed some different colored Bell peppers, some Asparagus, mushrooms and onion in a bit of Olive oil and a little garlic, salt and pepper. I found it helpful to squeeze the cheesecloth to get all the moisture out of the cauliflower.
