Cauliflower Pizza Recipe

Cauliflower pizza is a healthy, convenient and low-carb dinner. Sharing a recipe that’s a hit in our family and quite easy to put together. I make the pizza half-and-half, since my kids like a plain cheese pizza. I add different toppings for my husband and I on the other half.

CauliFlower Pizza Recipe

Ingredients:

  • One Cauliflower head
  • One cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon ginger/garlic paste
  • Salt to taste
  • Pizza sauce
  • Olives for toppings
  • Cooked meat for toppings (use leftovers)
  • Basil/Mint/Cilantro for toppings (according to preference)
  • One egg beaten

How To:

  1. Put the cauliflower in the food processor and shred
  2. Now put the shredded cauliflower in the microwave for five mins
  3. Place in the fridge to cool for 15 minutes
  4. Now in a bowl add 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, egg, ginger/garlic paste and salt to taste
  5. Preheat oven to 400F
  6. Mix it all well
  7. Slightly grease a baking tray and layer the mix evenly on it as the pizza crust
  8. Place in the oven for 15 minutes
  9. Take out the pizza crust and now prep the toppings
  10. Layer pizza sauce on top of the pizza
  11. Combine 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup parmesan and sprinkle on top of the pizza
  12. I make the pizza half-and-half and leave the kids’ half with just the pizza sauce and cheese
  13. For the other half, you can add toppings you like such as: cooked leftover meat/chicken, olives, basil/mint/cilantro. Get creative! You can leave the pizza vegetarian also.
  14. Place inside the oven for another 5 minutes for the cheese to melt. You can also switch on the broiler for the last one minute.

And that’s it! The super healthy pizza is ready! It will be a little crumbly but the health benefits out-weight the less-than-perfect texture. The best part about this pizza? I don’t fall in a food coma like I do after having a regular pizza.

You might worry that cauliflower will make you gassy? The ginger and garlic paste takes care of that. You can add a little apple cider vinegar in the crust also if you’re still concerned.

One thought on “Cauliflower Pizza Recipe

  1. I do not use chicken mince for cooking purposes and instead i grind chicken cubes which i wonder sometimes can be used as pizza crust. Have you tried using ground chicken as pizza crust? the only thing i worry is that it needs a very little time for cooking and using it in pizza might make the crust hard as my family need over cooked cheese.
