I tend to be on the late side when it comes to trends. I’m a classics kind of girl, so new fads don’t typically get my attention just because everyone else is doing it. But if it makes sense, then I’m all over it. And using cauliflower instead of wheat sounded like a great plan to me – I just had no idea it would be this easy!

One of my friends commented that this was the most ‘real’ looking cauliflower crust pizza she’s ever seen. Yaaa-uuuh. That’s because I considered it an art form to shape the crust and all that. So tap into the creative chef/starving artist inside of you, and go make some awesome cauliflower crust pizza. And then snap several shots of it and post for all your friends to drool. (Better yet, teach them how to make their own so you can enjoy yours without the guilt!)

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup Sliced red onion, mushroom or toppings of your choice

Directions

Cook riced cauliflower in the microwave per package instructions.

Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Drain any excess liquid, and mix cauliflower with egg, 1/4 cup cheese and spices.

Spread out onto baking sheet into a large pie-shaped circle, with raised edges to mimic pizza crust.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crust is light golden.

Spread with marinara, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and then top the pie with your favorite veggies and spices. (Slice the veggies thin and small, as the cauliflower crust won’t hold heavier pieces like traditional crust. Alternatively, plan to eat the pizza with a fork and knife like dignified folk!)

Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Remove from oven, slice with a pizza wheel, and serve hot.
