Ingredients (makes 1 pizza)

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • a few cracks pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • as much as you like favourite pizza toppings

Method

  1. Preheat oven on 200 degrees. Wash and dry a head of cauliflower. Cut off the florets. Put them in a food processor for about 30 seconds, until you get powdery snow like cauliflower. You should end up with 2 to 3 cups.
  2. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover. Microwave for 4 minutes. Place cooked cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and allow to cool for a bit. Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, wrap it up in the dish towel and squeeze out as much water as possible so the crust won't be mushy.
  3. Add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano , 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and a dash of red pepper if you want. Add a whole egg and mix it together.
  4. Form the dough into a crust on an oiled parchment paper and bake for 8-10 mins.
  5. Add what ever toppings you like and bake it for an extra 5-7 min.

  • We’ve been doing this for many years now and it’s so good, much better and far easier to digest then the bread-type pizza base.


    • BTW, the egg is only mentioned in the method, not in the ingredients list.
