Cauliflower Pizza Crust

It’s Pizza Time !

So I didn’t do much meal planning this week with the whole back to school back to work chaos. And I was improvising last night with whatever I had in my fridge. The kid suggested Pizza! Sure why not! I remembered I had seen a cauliflower crust pizza on Pinterest a few days before, and since I had a good healthy cauliflower in the fridge I took it upon me to make my Paleo Friendly Pizza.

Here is what I used:

Crust:

1 medium cauliflower

2 table spoons of flaxseed meal

2 table spoons of flour (it can be coconut flour)

Egg whites (about 2 eggs or 4-5 table spoons of egg bitters)

Salt, Oregano (for seasoning)

First grate or process your cauliflower in a food processor. It will look similar to couscous once it has been grated. Then cook this as you would cook couscous, add salt. Steam in a pan for a few minutes until tender; careful not to overcook you don’t want it to be too mushy. Set aside to cool.

Once cooled add flaxseed meal, egg whites, flour, oregano and check to see if It needs more salt.

Line some parchment paper on a pizza pan or cookie sheet and place the mixture. Distribute evenly. You can make one big pizza or a few small ones, I went for the small ones just because it is easier to eat and kid friendly.

Put in the oven (preheated at 400F) until crust is golden.

For the topping:

You need some tomato basil sauce or marinara sauce.

Cheese (if you are vegetarian/vegan and don’t consume cheese you can always use a substitute)

And I Used spinach but really you can add whatever you want to your pizza.

Take the golden crust, add your toppings and put back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese melts and it starts looking like a pizza.

TA-DA!
