I have been wanting to make this and may try it this evening. However, I do not have fennel. Is this definitely required?

Cleochatra,

I don't have a ricer or shredder. BUT, I do have fennel!

What could I use to shredd the cauliflower? I plan on using frozen (have that too).

Thanks for a wonderful recipe... hope I can make it!

Nikki

You can mince the cauliflower with a knife in the absence of other tools.

Someone asked about fennel--it's not a requirement.

Hello...love, love, love this! Thanks to Cleo and all the great ideas! I don't have a ricer, but have always taken either my potato masher or pastry cutter and it always turns out great! When I mash or cut, I don't give a the "smooth" consistency...done in a jiffy though!

Cleo you deserve an award! I finally made this tonight. My cauliflower was a little too moist so I added just a bit of canned parm to stiffen the batter a bit. I have to be honest and tell you I didn't believe it would not taste of cauliflower. However, I did not detect the taste of cauliflower at all!

I just cannot believe how good this is. I made homemade pizza sauce from a can of tomato sauce with some herbs and spices.

Also I had a small Cheddarwurst sausage in the fridge so I sliced it and put it on part of the pizza. YUM!

I am so happy and this is so easy.

I you!

You guys are totally, seriously, off the chain sweet.

I have a ricer, but I keep forgetting I have it. I'm such a dork! I need to try that.

happy-- ooh! That looks delectable! It's definitely restaurant quality!

I'm so glad, JPsixta!

My cauliflower pizza recipe was also featured this week on Dr. Oz's program. It is an honor to have a recipe show up on a national tv program like that!

Your Lighter Side...: My cauliflower recipe has gone mainstream!

Delicious

I saw this post for pizza made with a cauliflower crust and I was intrigued by it. I made it and, wow, it was delicious. It's a gift because the crust really does firm up and the cheese "carmelizes" slightly (if that's the right word).

Cleochatra, you have a gift for cooking and inventing. I am going to check out your other recipes!

I was hoping on the oopsie rolls as a 'batter/crust' of sorts, but saw that the results were extremely mixed.

Then it hit me... cauliflower. Yes. Cauliflower! I made this this afternoon... it is amazing!

Don't knock it until you try this! My husband is eating it faster than I can make it!

Recipe can be doubled.


You Won't Believe it's Cauliflower Pizza Crust


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

pizza or alfredo sauce
toppings
mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 450 degrees farenheit.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Press evenly on the pan. Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley.

Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe).

Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese.

Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted.










**I use frozen cauliflower prepared according to package directions. After cooked and slightly cooled, I shred cauliflower with a cheese grater, and then measure for the recipe. (Don't pack down the cup with cauliflower. Just fill it with a spoon or the cup itself.)

Mark-- Wow. Thank you so much! You know, the crazy thing is I was looking for ways to mask vegetables. I don't like them. I could do without them. They're pretty, but I prefer to keep them at a distance. So when I was desperate for pizza, it just made sense to use something I'd never normally eat on its own. Cauliflower is one crust base, and I also use zucchini as a second. I'm going to try spinach and Parmesan cheese in the base this weekend.

Cleo, if this cauliflower pizza crust recipe is not a sticky yet, you should bring it before the admins. This is a very popular thread and deserves to be a sticky. Use my quote if you like.

If you'd like to let them know, that's cool! I'm super behind on projects right now and wouldn't even know whom to contact. I've had things made sticky before, but not due to my insistence...

Thank you!

Cauliflower rice is shredded cauliflower. Here are a couple of threads to get you started.

FYI, I've had trouble finding cauliflower lately and just been using shredded zucchini. It's not quite the same, but good in a pinch. Also tried baking it in my new (well new to me) convection toaster oven, and it turned out great.

I have trouble finding the cauliflower, too! The zukes you have to squeeze the snot out of to remove all of the liquid, but it lends itself so well to taco pizza. I love taco pizza. LOVE!

If you google "cauliflower pizza crust" on Youtube, there are a few different videos on how to make the crust.
