There are a lot of recipes out there on the internet, but when I find one that I know I cannot live without, I HAVE TO SHARE IT! There is a pretty good chance this will change the way you eat pizza forever. It even won the hearts of my not so adventurous eaters. It can be vegan, gluten-free, low carb, paleo, but one thing will remain, it is delicious.
What you need:
1 medium head of cauliflower (this should work out to 3-4 cups of cauliflower rice)
1 egg (or make a vegan egg, with one tbsp of ground flax or ground chia, mixed with 3 tbsp of water)
1/3 cup of cheese (soft cheese is recommended, like feta or goat cheese, but you can use hard cheese that is shredded, or no cheese at all)
2 tsp of Oregano
A pinch of Himalayan salt & a pinch cayenne
A food processor, parchment paper, a cookie sheet, and a pot or steamer for the cauliflower.
How to make it:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut the cauliflower up into florets and steam for 3-4 minutes. Mine wasn’t totally cooked through, but that worked out great.
In meantime make your vegan egg, which simply requires you to mix the water and ground up chia OR ground flax, add the cheese and spices.
Or beat a regular egg, add the cheese, and spices. (Option to omit the cheese).
Once the cauliflower is cooked, you need to food process it until it looks like rice. Once complete, take the cauliflower rice, place in a clean dish towel, and squeeze out the excess water. (You would be surprised how much moisture is in there.) I left a little moisture just so it would stick together, but I rung out the rice twice. Once rung out, mix (well) the egg, cheese, and spices with the cauliflower.
Line the cookie sheet with the parchment paper (the parchment paper is necessary), spread the dough into whatever shape you enjoy your pizza, leaving it 1/3-inch thick.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
Take it out, add your pizza sauce, and topping of choice. Put back into the oven for ten minutes. Take the pizza out, let it cool for a few, and boom. PIZZA PARTY!
