Yield 1 pizza (8 slices)
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

For the topping:

  • ½ cup sugar free pizza sauce
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella
  • Pizza toppings, as desired

Instructions

  1. Chop the cauliflower into florets and add to the bowl of a food processor. Process until you have small rice like pieces.
  2. Steam, boil, or microwave cauliflower until very tender, about 5 minutes. 
  3. Let the cauliflower cool for 20 minutes and then dump into a clean tea towel. While cauliflower is cooling, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Fold the towel up over the cauliflower and squeeze out any excess moisture. Keep squeezing until no liquid is left in the cauliflower. See notes. 
  4. Transfer cauliflower to a mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients for the crust. Stir well to combine.
  5. Line a pizza pan with parchment paper and press the dough out into a circle around 9 inches in diameter. 
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until pizza crust is golden. 
  7. Remove from the oven and top with your pizza sauce, cheese, and preferred toppings. Return to the oven for 5-10 minutes more to melt the cheese and warm the toppings.
  8. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

Removing as much moisture from the cauliflower as possible is key to getting a sturdy crust that holds up well.

You may use one pound of frozen riced cauliflower in place of fresh. Use the same method and release as much liquid as possible.

The pizza crust should hold up well and be sturdy enough to pick up, so long as you don't overload it with heavy toppings. If you'd like extra toppings, just eat your pizza with a fork.
