For the last couple months I have been on a serious pizza kick enjoying all sorts of different pizza pies. My husband and I love making our own homemade pizza, whether it be on our grill or in our oven. We also love trying to find local joints that provide a great slice when our mood suits it. However, I think our favoritre is our pizza parties at our uncle’s house. He has a wood fired oven that pops out the most authentic and satisfying pizzas in about 90 seconds. The oven rests at about 700-800 degrees which means you need to act fast. You can imagine we pop over there from time to time for some red wine and fireside pizza making, which clearly I highly reccommend.

This week, a favorite vegetable of mine has sparked some interest in taking pizza in a different, less filling, but still satisfying direction. CAULIFLOWER PIZZA! I have made it years ago, but wanted to re-visit it and just have an explosion of mouth watering veggies on a delicious crispy crust.

You won’t believe it until you actually make it and taste it on how delicious a cauliflower pizza crust is! This is a low carb and low calorie option and is just downright mouth watering. Gluten Free you ask…you bet!

Cauliflower Crust

  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup light mozzarella, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon  dried oregeno
  • 2 tablespoon fresh basil, sliced thin

Pre heat your oven to 400 degrees. Chop the cauliflower in a food processor or by hand…a food processor would be my first choice. Make sure the consistency is a rice type feel.

Place chopped cauliflower in microwave for 10-12 minutes to steam. Remove the cauliflower with hot pads!

Now add in garlic, mozzarella, oregeno, basil and eggs. Blend completely.

Once you have all the ingredients combined, drop onto a pizza baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Begin to flatten the dough with your hands until you have the thickness and consistency you want. I would suggest a thin crust style pizza.

Place in oven for 10-15 minutes or until edges begin to brown.

Onto the fun part – decorating your pizza!

Topping Suggestions

  • pizza sauce (homemade or store bought)
  • pesto sauce (kale pesto – hint hint)
  • mozzarella cheese, shredded or torn fresh mozz
  • fresh basil
  • zucchini or yellow squash (or both!)
  • thinly sliced onion
  • tomatoes
  • sausage, chicken, bacon, ham or pepperoni (for you carnivores)
  • peppers, mild or spicy (for you crazy heat lovers)

Once you have your pizza dressed, which I wouldn’t go too overboard because you want it to cook evenly, place back in the oven for an additional 20 minutes.
