Cauliflower Pizza Crust

A pizza crust made with cauliflower? This can’t taste good… but it DOES!

Magic, I’m tellin’ ya.

Ryan and I tried this recipe several months ago and were amazed at how fantastic the crust turned out.

We decided to spend our Friday night in, eatin’ pizza, staying warm and messing with Sadie. ;) (Maybe those lingering Christmas decorations will come down tonight…)

To make the cauliflower pizza crust, we first riced cooked cauliflower in the food processor that I got for Christmas (thanks Mama!) until we had one cup of the prepped veggie.

We then added an egg and a cup of light mozzarella cheese to the cauliflower and mixed it until the ingredients formed a “dough.”

Pizza "Dough"

After pressing it onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and sprinkling the dough with spices, we baked it at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Ready for Toppings

We then took the crust out and topped it with the pizza toppings of our choice (lots o’ veggies puh-lease!). We stuck the crust back into the oven, placing it under the broiler until the cheese melted.

It smelled fantastic.

We split the pizza in half and dug in. Bon appetit!

Dessert

For dessert we split two little bowls of banana soft serve (just frozen bananas blended for a while in the food processor)… one plain banana and one chocolate banana. Can you guess which one I enjoyed more?

Answer: Chocolate. Always chocolate.

This evening has been quite delicious!

Hope you’re all enjoying your Friday night. Happy weekend! :D

    How interesting!! Ryan is great for eating stuff like that. I don’t think Andrew would be smiling for the camera if I asked him to make that with me, haha! BUT, it is gluten free, so it’s pizza he could eat!! I should give it a try!!

    Wow! Who would have thought this for a pizza crust! Pizza is probably one of my all time FAVE foods…I just might get up the guts to try this! One question – does the crust get crispy????

    Wow – this is interesting! …Did you find it was alot of cheese though…I would eat the WHOLE pizza myself…would that be too much?!?! ;)….I’ve heard of zucchini crust too…of course, nothing beats a nice soft or crispy dough ultimately :)

      it was definitely cheesy & i could easily eat it all myself if i didn’t have a side of veggies or something else to eat as well. i think the entire crust has less than 500 calories though.

    I have made this crust many times, it just gets better each time!! I did the HCG diet plan and lost 31 lbs, and with wonderful recipes like this one, I have managed to keep it all off!!
    Love the Banana idea, I will have to try this!
    Thanks

    I made this pizza last night and it was so, so good! I threw some spinach and roasted red peppers into the dough of the crust and it was great! I love your blog it’s adorable and I love reading about your wedding since I am also planning a wedding :) Thanks for the recipe!

    The pizza crust is a great idea, and I intend to try it later this week. But I’m especially wowed by your simple banana soft serve! Amazing.

    Banana softserve, a favorite of mine for a while…
    Cauliflower crust, never tried or heard of it so SUPER excited to give it a shot. I usually do tortilla pizzas on Ezekial Sprouted Torillas but this recipe is awesome because it has more of a dough-y constistancy. Thanks!!!

    Has anyone tried this, replacing cheese with tofu? It’s on my todo list for when my detox is over in a month or so, I’ll let you know how it goes!

    For the banana soft serve, did you just freeze a banana and then put it in the food processor? Or is there something mixed in with it (milk, icecream, etc?)
