I really like the zucchini variation. I make a double batch and bake individual crusts and freeze them. Makes a good wrap for tacos, and quick and easy personal pizza.

shredded cauliflower (you can shred it raw in a food processor with the shredding tool in seconds). Steam lightly before using in this recipe.

tofu crust

Thanks for your cauliflower crust recipe...I tried it and I could not make it hard enough to stay like a real pizza slice, but the taste was wonderful, so we eat it with a fork from the plate.

I have my own tofu crust recipe:

Crust:
1 piece of tofu (I buy them from Costco) shredded on the lime shredder
mozzarella shredded on the small shredder
2-3 eggs
oregano, black pepper, garlic powder, dried parsley

Topping:
low-carb ketchup
salami
mozzarella
mushrooms

I prepare it on my George Foreman grill. Place the crust for 5 min, then roll it over, place the toppings and grill it for another 10-12 min.

It does cut up nicely in the picture.. and looks great! I am wondering .. How does it stand up to the hold test that you mentioned? Tofu in a crust? Not exactly in line with cauliflower crust tread.. but I bet you could incorporate it in your pizza.. (grin)

I am assuming that when you did Cleo's recipe you tried flipping it and browning it on both sides before topping it? -- seem that is the key.. esp if you dont drain the cauliflower so well.. etc

Thanks for sharing.

I do like that Foreman you have.. Havent seen one like that.
Nice open space to cook..

The cauliflower pizza crust is a gluten free god send!! I was worried I'd have to go the rest of my life pizza-less! I make mine with pepper jack cheese and lots of jalapenos, bacon, onion and green pepper!! Yummy!!

The fat gives the pizza its staying power. I can't eat more than two slices at a time if I tried.
I second the staying power! If I have it for lunch...I'm pretty much full for the rest of the day!

Post # 497 in this thread explains the zucchini variation. Basically, you substitute the same amount of zucchini for the cauliflower. Post 570 shows the taco zucchini pizza.

Here's the recipe, I like this one better - the zucchini has a much more mellow flavor to me. Just make sure to squeeze the heck out of it or you'll end up with a gloppy mess! This makes great individual wrap/pizza bases too, just make smaller ones.

Large raw zucchini
2 eggs
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or pizza cheese*)

Instructions
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Grease cookie sheet.

Shred a large zucchini. Squeeze handfuls of zucchini to remove excess water. Add egg and cheese, and mix well (I always use my hands).


Spread the dough onto the pan evenly (watch to distribute evenly. The middle of the crust can be too thick, causing edges to brown and the center to remain thick) and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is cooked. Let cool/rest.


Makes a large crust (14")

I am new here and am so thankful to have found this thread. I made the pizzas last night and my kids (who run from a veggie as if their hair were on fire) gobbled it down and had no idea. Dh said he couldn't tell the difference and kept going back for more.

Thank you so much. Why are you not on the Food Network? You could seriously be Food Network Queen.

LOL. I am not worthy of the Food Network. I actually looked into taking chef classes because I'd like to know more about the process and chemistry of foods, but it's a little more expensive than I can swing at this time. I do love to play in the kitchen, though.

Thanks for being so sweet!

Sorry for the long break. I've got a lot going on right now, and my basement flooded (it's also my downstairs and it's been a disaster).

Just one more quick endorsement. My Dh is a fireman and he actually called me to get the recipe so he could make cauliflower pizzas for the guys at the station. He fooled them.

Also, my 9 year old requested it for lunch yesterday.

Woohoo! I'm glad you guys have found it to your liking. Not everyone likes cauliflower. I know there are days I don't too. lol The zucchini version is pretty awesome, too, but the greater moisture content can be a bit tricky.

I made this today and it was incredible! I made a small error though with the cauliflower. I didn't realize it said 1 cup COOKED. What I did was shred the cauli before it was cooked and I wasn't even thinking that the amount would shrink in the microwave. :blush: So I ended up with 1/2 cup cooked cauli, so my crust a bit on the thin side, but still awesome none-the-less and I could still hold it in my hands. It was just more of a super thin crust. I also have the breadsticks in the oven now.

I love the bread sticks the best, but they take a long time to cook. My 8 year old likes them better than real bread bread sticks.

I think you handled the cooking just fine. If you like the flavor then maybe skipping the cooking step would make life that much easier. Cooking cauli takes time and produces more liquid. I'm lazy.

I totally forgot you made the cauli dough into breadsticks, Cleo (I filed that away and never tried them but make the pizza version all the time). I made the breadsticks last night with some amazing mozzeralla cheese and they were SO good. YUM! Sprinkled with garlic powder and more cheese at the end, I can tell I'm going to make these often. Thanks!

Ooh where do I find the breadsticks? ETA: nevermind I found them. Yum!

FYI: I'm eating cauliflower pizza for lunch today and let my co-workers taste it.. They really like it.

I finally made one tonight & it was delicious. I pulled a good one on my hubby he hates cauliflower or so he thought. I didn't tell him what it was made out of until he had eat 1/2 of the pizza. You should have seen the look on his face. Simple & quick will definately be making on a regular basis.

My kids whine about the cauliflower pizza, but they swipe the bread sticks ALL the time, soo....

It's like hello? The bread sticks are twice the thickness with none of the toppings.

Kids.

ok we tried this crust for the first time tonight. OMG it was SO good! The fennel in the spices makes it I think! This is what we did:



Toppings: mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, zucchini, onions, artichokes, mushrooms and a little alfredo sauce instead of tomato sauce. DELISH!

has anyone ever tried pre-making the crusts and freezing them for future use? Just wondering if this would work. Would be a really nice way to have a quick meal on busy nights!
