I just made this and it was GREAT! It only took 5 minutes to prepare, cooked in the amount of time it took me to put in a load of laundry, and the toppings took maybe two minutes under the broiler. My 4 year old had about 1/4 of the pizza and I had the rest!
I would recommend this recipes to anyone, no special ingredients or skills. Just fast, simple, and yummy.
And yes I could eat it with my hands, I had a pretty good size pizza crust from the single batch recipe...I'd say 10" or so.
Thanks for the recipe!

can low fat cream cheese be used with the cauliflower instead of mozzarella?
I just find mozarella too high in calories

I am not on a low carbdiet but rather trying for lower calories. Anyway saw this online and had to try it! i grated uncooked, fresh cauliflower and simered so it was softer burt with some bite. I only had 3/4 of a cup of mozzarella to the 1 of cauliflower.

Mine holds up ok (bit thicker next time, i think will help even more with the right amount of cheese) and the parts with correct cheese and herbs didn't taste of cauliflower whereas the parts without did taste of cauliflower.

sour cream, mozzarella and pear topping

I had this for dinner today! So delicious. I love the crust as just bread too, nothing added.

I just have to say, HOLY CRAP! I made it and it turned out exactly as promised/pictured...and my partner would have had NO idea there was cauliflower in it if I hadn't told him. I was just gobbling it up, thinking how NOT deprived I am! You SO rock!

I did take a picture because I was so impressed, but haven't uploaded it yet.

I had to make cauliflower pizza. I was getting hongry watching everyone else. I made mine into small, mini crusts for quick meals!

And here are some chewy cauliflower bread sticks, covered with cheese and garlic.



Both are super easy to make!

Hey! You know what I tried this time?

On this batch I subbed out 1/4 of the cauliflower for Parmesan cheese. (For a 2-cup recipe, I subbed out 1/4 C cauliflower for 1/4 cup Parm). You can change out up to half of the recipe with Parm, but Parm starts becoming pretty pungent if there's too much. I loved the 1/4 sub. I was inspired by Nancy the delicious who was inspired by mine! lol


So for a little extra Parm:

You Won't Believe it's Cauliflower Pizza Crust + Parm


3/4 cup cooked, riced cauliflower*
1 egg
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp fennel
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley

One more thing:

I just had an inspiration based on potato planks.

You take the bread sticks and slather them with sour cream, cheddar and bacon (and chives if you have them)... it tastes so amazing! I just ate the picture for dinner. It was phenomenal!

hmm

mine did not firm up properly. i think either i overprocessed the cauliflower (i processed it raw, then nuked it for 3 mins) or i didn't bake long enough, or both. hrm. grr.

clearly, more experimentation is needed. it was still delicious, just ended up more like a casserole than a pizza.

Wow... mmmm... paula!

gluten-- For mushy results, I definitely recommend extra liquid removal of the veg + maybe adding less veg and Parm. So if you remove extra cauliflower liquid and it's still too moist, try making a recipe with 3/4 cup cauliflower and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (grated) to soak up some of that excess moisture.

thanks cleo,

i dry-nuked the cauliflower, so it didn't have that much moisture, and actually i did add some parm...

i still have some cauliflower left, so i just need to get more cheese and i can try it again.

I dry nuke and I still have to squoosh water out of the veg! It's insane. Insane. Seriously. Definitely use a cheesecloth or your fists to squeeze out the moisture. (Zukes are way worse, but don't smell like cauliflower, so it's give and take).

ok, i will squeeze it. have you ever tried adding a little ground flax to the mix? like a tablespoon in a recipe? i didn't want to go messing with things on my first try, though.

I haven't tried ground flax, but I have sprinkled the greased pan before with parm (as some do with cornstarch). You could try a quarter of the recipe with the flax and make a mini crust and see what you think. For me, flax doesn't necessarily harden and could end up being not as pleasant in terms of final product.

Just bumping this thread to tell you that you are my new favorite person EVER. Seriously!

1 year of low-carbing on boring, basic meat/veg ... first slice of pizza today ... heavenly!

Thanks so much for your blog!

Thanks so much for your kind words. *slips you a $20 under the table*

It's nice to meet you. I keep some of the mini crusts in the fridge and when I need a quick meal, I just top 'em and toss them under the broiler until the cheese melts.

I'm making more right now, to save for quick meals.

Thanks for the $20

I had a mini crust this morning, topped with spinach, cheese, sun-dried tomato and more. It's so easy! Just top, broil for a couple minutes and it's breakfast.

I seriously cannot wait to try this on Sunday. This is pretty much the thread that got me to join the forum!

Have just got my hands on some Italian 'Lardo' which should give my attempt a nice little kick!

Also: I passed this to a guy I work with (he's got celiacs (sp?) and seriously misses pizza...he seemed rather excited).

I made an oopsie with my pizza today and I think I like it! I always use 1 cup cauli, but I had a cup and a half left over in the fridge that I was gonna use 1 cup to make a pizza and then use the other half cup for fried rice. I totally forgot and dumped the cup and a half of cauli in the bowl. It made for a thicker crust and I like the crust thick like this so from now on its a cup and a half.

Yummy !!!! 5/5

I made this last night! It tasted just like the real thing.... Thin crust pizza with Alfredo sauce, mushroom, chicken and spinach.... Yum
My hubby said that it was 1 of the best pizzas he'd ever had. And i had never even made a pizza before this in my life . It was so easy. Thank u 4 dis recipe.

Some tweaking-
I also added a tsp of garlic paste to the mix and I'm glad I did.
I used 1.5 cup Riced cauli instead of the 1 cup.
