INSTRUCTIONS FOR Quick N Healthy Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe 

◾Preheat oven the 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

◾If using raw cauliflower: steam cauliflower (24 Ounces) in a covered medium pot with a few inches of water, until tender. Add steamed cauliflower to a food processor and process until “rice” sized.

◾If using raw cauliflower rice: steam cauliflower rice in a medium pot with a few inches of water until tender.

◾If using frozen cauliflower rice: defrost until no longer frozen.

◾Wrap riced cauliflower in a clean kitchen towel, and squeeze to release all liquid. Then squeeze some more.

◾Add cauliflower “pulp” to a large bowl, along with eggs (2), Italian seasoning (1 teaspoon), grated parmesan (1/4 cup) and salt (1/2 teaspoon). Thoroughly combine using your hands.

◾Press the cauliflower into a 6″ round disc on your prepared baking sheet.

◾Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the cauliflower pizza and bake for another 10 minutes.

◾Crank the over up to broil, add toppings, and bake pizza for another 3-5 minutes. Be careful, as ingredients tend to burn at this temp, so keep a careful eye.

◾Allow pizza to cool before slicing, and enjoy!

NOTES:

⭐Cauliflower. I prefer using FROZEN cauliflower RICE and allowing it to defrost before getting started. It saves a ton of time and dirty dishes.

Recipes Variations:

⭐The best thing about this pizza crust (besides the way it tastes) is that it’s so easy to personalize. Here are some easy variations that can enhance the flavor of your keto cauliflower pizza without wrecking the recipe:

⭐Make cauliflower pizza bites. Making cauliflower pizza bites is a bit like making meatballs (but not quite as messy). Simply use the same recipe and form into smaller bite-sized portions. Top and bake as you would a large pizza, but you may need to cut the cooking time a bit. If you’re looking for even easier bite-sized pizzas, check out this eggplant pizza.

⭐Turn this into a casserole. Turn this into a keto pizza casserole by lining the bottom of a casserole dish with the crust, then top and bake!

⭐Switch up the pizza sauce. You can use whatever works with your pizza vision here! Some of my faves are pesto or keto bbq sauce.

⭐Make this crust dairy-free. Simply use 3 eggs and skip the Parmesan.
