I am resolving to finally get all of my friends and fans HOOKED on cauliflower pizza crust. There is absolutely no reason (OK, maybe a few) for you to ever eat regular pizza again. Cauliflower as a pizza crust is one of the best ideas ever, and you will be shocked at how incredible this recipe is. If I can eat guilt-free pizza almost every night of the week, sign me up! Try it out and let me know what you think.
2 1/2 cups raw cauliflower (processed in a food processor)
1 egg white
1/4 cup Romano cheese, shredded
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning blend
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
salt and pepper as desired
Preheat oven to 400 degrees with a pizza stone if you have one. Heat the cauliflower in the microwave for 2 minutes. Once the cauliflower has cooled enough to handle, press out as much water as possible. The cauliflower should resemble uncooked large-grain grits at this point. Add in the cheeses, seasonings and egg white. Mix well. Pour mixture onto a piece of parchment paper (the paper should be on a pizza peel or baking sheet). Shape the mixture into a pizza crust 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the crust has browned fairly well all over. Remove from the oven and add toppings. Place back into the oven, turn the oven to broil and allow the pizza to cook until the cheeses are bubbly and browning. Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes if you can stand it before cutting and serving!
This recipe makes one 10-inch pizza. You can divide the recipe into two personal pizzas or double it up, or even triple it to make as many different varieties of pizzas as you need. I topped this one with lowfat mozzarella, turkey pepperoni and bell peppers. Y-U-M! Oh, and if you don’t have a food processor, you can use a small cheese grater, as well The texture is just a little more moist, so make sure you really wring out as much water as you can.
