This might sound crazy, but it does work! Cauliflower pizza crust is definitely a great healthy alternative to a conventional pizza. Since staying off gluten and grains, I've tried many recipes to create the closest resemblance to a regular pizza crust. This recipe, by far, has become a favorite of mine. It's a smart way to enjoy pizza; it's not only nutritious for you but it does taste like a regular thin pizza crust.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 head cauliflower (or 2 1/2 cups coarsely grated cauliflower)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup part skim grated mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Spray cooking spray on a large baking sheet or pizza pan
  3. Remove stems and leaves from cauliflower and coarsely grate cauliflower florets to resemble rice to make 2 1/2 cups.
  4. Place grated cauliflower, garlic, salt and pepper in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and cook until tender, about 7-8 minutes.
  5. Place cauliflower in a medium bowl and cool slightly. Add in mozzarella, Parmesan, egg, basil and oregano and stir until combined.
  6. Press evenly on baking pan or pizza stone.
  7. Bake  at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  8. Remove the crust from the oven.
  9. Top with pizza sauce and toppings. You don’t need much cheese on top since there is a lot of it already in the crust.
  10. Bake for an additional 5-7 minutes until the toppings are hot and the cheese is melted. Allow the pizza to cool for 2-3 minutes, then cut and serve.
