We love our veggies. Yes the little one too, thankfully! When we first heard of a cauliflower crust we didn’t really know what to think although we were intrigued!
Since we weren’t sure if we’d like it or not we decided to get a head of cauliflower from the discount rack that was is good shape. This way if it just so happened that we didn’t like it we wouldn’t be wasting as much money!
Thankfully, it was absolutely delicious 🙂 So delicious that I had to make it again and share the recipe!
I don’t know the exact site that I found my recipe but it’s pretty much the same anywhere you look.
Gluten Free Cauliflower Crust Recipe
- 2.5 cups grated cauliflower
- 1 egg slightly beaten
- 1 1/4 cups shredded/grated cheese
Line a rimmed baking sheet/pan with parchment paper &preheat the oven to 425° F.
Grate cauliflower & microwave for 7-8 minutes or until it’s soft. Set aside to cool!
Mix the egg with the grated cheese. Remove any excess juices from the cauliflower using a cheese cloth or paper towels. Mix the egg & cheese into the cauliflower and pat into the lined baking sheet/pan.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden. For a crispier crust bake for 20-25 minutes. Add your favourite pizza ingredients bake for an additional 10 minutes and you have the best tasting healthy pizza that anyone will ever eat!
*I personally like to add spices such as garlic powder, celery salt, pepper, green onions and dried chive rings to give a bit more flavour to the crust. These can also be frozen for later use.
*Update* We tried to make a crispier crust which ended up sticking to the parchment paper which I’ve never been a fan of anyway! We’ll attempt this again but without the paper and let you all know how it turns out 🙂
