Cauliflower can easily take on the flavors that we love in pizza! If you're dairy-free and low carb, paleo, or on the GAPS diet, you'll love this recipe! It's also great for those who are on keto but don't want to eat so much cheese (I'm looking at you, Fathead dough!).
It's tempting to skip the cheesecloth step, but it is essential for creating a crust that holds together and isn't just mashed cauliflower with pizza toppings on it ;) In our Keto Family Class we make 3 weeks' worth of cauliflower pizza crust at once, and then carefully freeze for later weeks. All the yum of Pizza Friday, and only making a mess in the kitchen once!
Cook cauliflower by steaming on the stovetop or microwave for 5 minutes. Cauliflower should be soft. Allow to cool until it’s not too hot to touch and pile cauliflower into a cheesecloth and then gather cheesecloth at the top and twist to press out all the excess water. This will mash the cooked cauliflower. Do not skip this step or your cauliflower crust will not hold together.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and divide your cauliflower dough into 2 even portions. Press into two pizza-shaped circles, about 3/4 inch thick.
Bake pizza for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and add toppings. Return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes or until edges start to turn golden brown and toppings are cooked.
Yes, half a pizza is one serving! This is a very low calorie pizza crust, so you get to enjoy all the yummy toppings and many slices! :)
