Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 drops Basil Vitality™
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, whipped
  • Pizza sauce
  • Desired toppings

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Wash the head of cauliflower and break off all florets.
  3. Grind in a food processor until texture becomes rice-like.
  4. Place on parchment paper on a baking sheet and roast for 5–8 minutes, watching carefully. You don’t want the cauliflower to brown, just to become soft.

  6. Combine cauliflower in a bowl with all the other ingredients. Clean hands mix the best!
  7. Place parchment paper on baking sheet and oil it.
  8. Pat down the cauliflower mixture until a flat circle.
  9. Bake for 8–10 minutes or until golden.
  10. Remove from oven and cool.
  11. Once cool, evenly spread sauce over dough.
  12. Add desired toppings.
  13. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
