Recommended Posts

Made this for new years with Hemp cheese topping, and Jack Fruit BBQ, Might want to add a second Flax egg if using this method to firm it up a bit more

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

1 medium head cauliflower (1lb)
2 tbsp coconut oil divided
1 egg (Flax Egg will work here 1tbsp ground flax +2 1/2 water let sit 5min)
dash of salt
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
pinch of red pepper
1 cup fine shredded(4oz) vegan cheese (Lisanatti Mozzarella Almond Cheese is what I used)
2 tbsp almond meal
1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1.Preheat oven to 450, with a cooking sheet or pizza stone in it.
2.prep parchment paper rub 1 Tbl coconut oil all over it
3.Cut the cauliflower into florets, removing the core.
4.In batches in a food processor with a grating blade, grate the cauliflower into a rice like texture. (This can also be done with a hand grater.)
5. Put 1 inch of water in a sauce pan and put the grated cauliflower in it and bring to a boil on high then turn to low and cover stirring occasionally for 10-15mins The cauliflower will be soft when done, drain into a clean towel or cheese cloth and press ALL THE WATER out when cool enough (this makes sure it is firm and not crumbly when done)
6.In a large bowl beat the egg well.
7.Add the cauliflower rice, 1tbsp coconut oil, salt, pepper, basil, nutritional yeast, almond meal, oregano, red pepper, and vegan cheese. Mix well.
8.Shape mixture in a large circle on the parchment paper, and place the paper with the dough on the sheet/stone.
9.Bake for 13-15 minutes, until golden brown.
10. Add your toppings and cook another 5-7mins then remove parchment with pizza from sheet and let cool 5-10mins so it firms up.
