I am neither gluten intolerant nor following a Paleo diet. I am an omnivore and will eat anything that doesn’t eat me first.
I do love my healthy diet though and am always on the lookout for food that is healthy, delicious, and interesting. This cauliflower crust pizza is a winner in all of those categories. Here’s the recipe.
1 head cauliflower, stalk removed
1/2 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until fine. Steam in a steamer basket and drain well. (You can squeeze it in a light towel or cheesecloth to get all the moisture out.) Let cool. In a bowl, combine the cauliflower with the mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, salt, garlic powder and eggs. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet and spread into a circle, resembling a pizza crust. Bake for 20 minutes. Add desired toppings and bake an additional 10 minutes.
I used half of a large head of cauliflower and only one egg. I topped it with fresh garlic, sliced cherry tomatoes, and sausage. Dried basil and hot pepper flakes finished it. Try it, you’ll love it!
