Recipes for this are all over the internet. Here is my recipe.

1/2 LARGE head cauliflower (or 2+ cups shredded cauliflower)
1 large egg
1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese (or try another kind!)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or fresh garlic)
1/2 teaspoon onion salt

1. Shred cauli well , cook in microwave w/ a sm bit of water for 8 mins., cover bowl w/ saran

2. Mix all after cauliflower has cooled a bit. Press out onto a pan and bake at 450 for 15 mins. Put on toppings and place under broiler until done
Use parchment paper for easy removal and clean up, no sticking.

Try the Fathead pizza crust recipe. Extremely easy and real crust like:


Minutes to Prepare: 5
Minutes to Cook: 20
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

Mozzarella Cheese, whole milk, 1.5 cup, shredded
Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour - per 3/4 Cup
Cream Cheese, 2 tbsp
Egg, fresh, whole, raw, 1 large
Garlic, 2 clove

Directions

Microwave for 1 min, stir and then another 30 sec, stir (very hot!)

-Stir in egg & almond flour

-Wet hands and spread “dough” thin on parchment paper. It should spread evenly with dough-like consistency (if “stringy” then your cheese has hardened too much—just put it back in the microwave for maybe another 20 seconds)

-Dock (poke rows of holes) with a fork to avoid bubbling

-Sprinkle with garlic salt

-Put in 425 degree oven

-After about 8 minutes, check it and poke holes where any large bubbles may be.

-continue cooking for a total 12-14 min, or until slightly brown on top.

Serving Size: makes 6 servings

I have tried the cauli crust and did not care for it.

This is our fave and has been for years!

My vote is for the Fathead-type pizza crust, too.

I had tried numerous other crusts and DH tolerated them for a time and then went back to his favorite frozen variety, spiffed up with extra sauce, cheese, and toppings. I was not about to spend the time and effort to make a homemade high-carb pizza dough from scratch that I can't eat!


I made Fathead only once, but DH said he'd happily it again. I didn't use as much almond flour as called for, but subbed in about one-third of the Fantastic Flour mix.

I think the Fathead type doughs have a lot going for them and approach "real" dough, IMHO. YMMV

I use this recipe as well, but use frozen TJs cauli rice instead of ricing my own.

The trick is that you have to have clear expectations- it is still cauliflower. To me, it is more like a casserole with pizza-type ingredients. I really like it.
