Filed Under: Recipes at 3:40 pm | By: Madeline Reiss

Those following a ketogenic (or generally low-carb) diet can rest easy knowing they can still indulge in pizza! This recipe features delicious, crispy, guilt-free, easy-to-make pizza crust made from cauliflower!

Recipe Source: Ourbestbites.com

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups grated or ground cauliflower (use a food processor or cheese grater)
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
kosher salt
1 egg, slightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Place cauliflower in a heat-safe bowl and cover with BPA-free plastic wrap with a few holes to vent. Microwave for 4 minutes, remove plastic and stir to cool it off a little.
  3. Place cauliflower in a fine mesh strainer and use a rubber spatula to press cauliflower against strainer, pushing out any liquid.
  4. Use several paper towels and press down to absorb more liquid. You could also ring it out in a clean, dry tea towel.
  5. Place cauliflower in a bowl and fluff with a fork. Add basil, oregano, garlic, Parmesan, and mozzarella. Add salt to taste. Add egg and stir to blend completely.
  6. Press mixture out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper that’s been sprayed with non-stick spray. Press mixture out to about 1/4 inch or slightly thicker circle.
  7. Place pan in oven and bake until golden brown. Pizzas tend to vary in cooking time, so sight is the best indicator. Generally, 15-20 minutes is a good time frame.
  8. Remove from oven, top with desired toppings and return to oven to melt cheese. Let rest for a couple of minutes and then slice and serve.

  1. Health advocate says:

    Am I reading this right? Cover with plastic wrap and a microwave?? You will do yourself some good with cauliflower but kill yourself using plastic wrap in the microwave as it leaches it’s many chemicals into the cauliflower crust. This is according to 100s of studies easily found in a google search. Very disappointed to read this instruction in a recipe from a blog purporting itself to be healthy.
