Cauliflower Crust Pizza 2 Ways

This is a healthy gluten free pizza that is absolutely mouthwatering delicious. And guess what the crust is made from? CAULIFLOWER! Finally, a healthy gluten free pizza option without all that corn and tapioca garbage. This pizza is unbelievably satisfying, with a crunchy crust and a doughy center that you can actually pick up, fold and devour. You are probably very skeptical right not but please trust me, it’s even deep-dish pizza, white bread loving boyfriend approved. I experimented with two separate pie toppings- one topped with caramelized onions and prosciutto and the other Caprese style with fresh mozzarella, basil and heirloom tomatoes. Each equally delicious!

ImageThe following recipe makes enough for one medium sized pizza but double, triple or quadruple the recipe depending on how many hungry people you want to feed.

Ingredients:

1 Small Head of Cauliflower

¾ Cup Shredded Mozzarella

1 Organic Egg

1 ½ Teaspoon Italian Seasoning (ex- dried oregano & garlic powder)

½ Teaspoon Sea Salt

For the Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Topping:

½ Large Sweet Onion, caramelized in a pan

½ Cup Shredded Mozzarella

3 Slices Fresh Prosciutto

½ Tablespoon Olive Oil

For the Fresh Mozzarella & Heirloom Tomatoes Topping:

2 Medium Heirloom Tomatoes (try to get two different colors)

5 Ounces Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, thinly sliced

1 Small Bunch Fresh Basil

Directions:

For the crust:

Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees. Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Wash and dry the head of cauliflower very well. Cut off the florets and place in the food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower resembles rice. Place contents in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place mozzarella, egg, seasoning & salt into a large bowl and mix until everything is fully incorporated. Mix in the microwaved cauliflower. Spread out the mixture on the baking sheet, flattening it out depending on how thick you enjoy your crust. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove & let cool.

For the topping:

After the crust has cooled top with the desired toppings. Broil the pizza in your oven for 3 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Remove and enjoy!Image
