Oh man!!!!!!!!! This was a GREAT TASTING recipe! And this man in the video is so funny and cute!
This is the best cauliflower crust I’ve seen recipe-wise, and he definitely tried out a few different combinations before landing on this one, which he explains in his video. So I decided to try it out myself…
My oldest son’s face when I told him what I was making 😀 LOL
Anyway… it was really easy. The only thing I did differently was use frozen (de-thawed) cauliflower which in hindsight, made it harder to get into the right texture, but it did still work and it still held together as a “crust.” But next time I try this, I’m doing it this man’s way using raw cauliflower and grating it down – just would have saved so much time.
- 2 cups cauliflower, (or however much you want to make as many pizzas as you want) 2 cups = only ONE medium sized pizza
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or other hard cheese)
- 1 large egg
Grate cauliflower into little rice-like shavings (best to do this with raw cauliflower, if using de-thawed frozen, you have to try to blend it in a food processor)
Gently cook cauliflower shavings in a pan over medium heat to get all the moisture out. You’re not browning it – just getting it to be a dryer texture so that it meshes together better to make a perfect crust!
Whisk egg in a large bowl, add in the shavings along with the parmesan. Mix together and then your ready to put it on a pizza pan.
Use oven paper or parchment paper over your pizza pan to prevent it from sticking (and help with super easy clean up!), spread out the crust mixture evenly into a circle. Lift up edges of pizza to create a slight “crust.” It’s important that the edges are thicker so that they don’t burn since the edges tend to cook quicker!
Now just bake at 400’F for 20 minutes to get it into a nice bread-y texture:
That’s it!! It’s gorgeous!! This (above) is what it looks like after it’s baked to prep. It is CHEESY because of all that Parmesan mixed into the crust! We thought this was awesome!! Now add your toppings once it’s cooled a little (5 min), and pop back in the oven at 400’F to cook for about 10 min more.
DELICIOUS alternative to pizza!!!
The only down side is that it does takes some time and only produces ONE smallish pizza – good for two adults for 2 days of lunches. My usual (normal) recipe of making homemade pizza from scratch produces typically FOUR LARGE (HUGE) pizzas that last a long time.
So you have to really want to make this to keep to lower carbs. It’s great though! I’ll definitely be making it again ❤
And the leftovers the next day are GREAT! 😀
Another tasty & healthy recipe in the bucket… now excuse me while I indulge in some gorgeous cheesy healthy pizza 😉
