Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Can we talk about fads for a second?

Most fads are entertaining. Usually somewhat annoying, but mostly entertaining. And then there are some fads that should have been over before they even began, like the words ‘swag’ and ‘yolo’. And ebooks (please just buy a real book, people! There’s no comparison). And are ‘gangnam style’ and the Harlem shake going to be leaving any time soon? Please say yes.

But there are some fads that I hope stay around for a long time, like Duck Dynasty (oh, how I love Jase Robertson). And Instagram. And the gluten-free/Paleo thing is really big right now. And speaking as a carb-addict, I am seriously hoping gluten-free food stays popular for a while. My waistline would appreciate it.

Makes one 8″ pizza.

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 450℉.
Break the head of cauliflower into florets. Add the cauliflower florets to a blender or the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until cauliflower breaks down and resembles rice (Be careful not to overblend or the cauliflower will turn into puree). Place ⅓ of broken-down cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl (1 head of cauliflower will make enough for three pizzas). Microwave on high for 7-8 minutes until cooked thoroughly.
Mix cooked cauliflower, beaten egg, and mozzarella cheese until fully blended. Dump mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and pat into an 8″ circle. Sprinkle pizza crust with dried oregano and garlic powder. Place baking sheet in oven and bake 13-15 minutes until golden brown.

Cover crust with toppings of choice and broil at 500℉ for 4-5 minutes.
*In the photo below, I covered my cauliflower crust with slices of tomato, strips of green pepper, vegan Italian sausage, and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese.

Bonus points if you pick anything from the 90s.
Slap bracelets and Dunkaroos, anyone? No?
I’ll stop now.
