Yup, it’s true. Cauliflower acts as a crust for our favorite sauce-and-cheese combo. I didn’t believe it until I tried it either.
- head fresh cauliflower - 1 head, or about 5 cups broken down
- egg - 1
- shredded pizza cheese - 1 cup
- pizza seasoning, dried basil, or oregano - 1/2 tsp,
- your favorite pizza sauce -
- your favorite pizza cheese -
- pinch of salt -
Preheat oven to 475°F (240°C). Place the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse until it is the consistency of fine couscous. Place the cauliflower onto a tea towel and close towel tightly. Squeeze it on both ends over a sink. Let the excess water drip away. Transfer to a bowl and mix with egg, cheese, and seasoning.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour the contents of the bowl onto the sheet and spread it with your fingers to create an even crust. Bake until it begins to darken around the edges, about 15 minutes.
Spread with a thin layer of homemade or store-bought sauce. Sprinkle with your favorite pizza cheese and add a pinch of salt. Place back in the oven at the same temperature for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
