Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
1) Shredding/Steaming/Straining Cauliflower:
Shred 1 large cauliflower (remove leaves/stem) in a food processor using either the grater blade or s-blade. Can also manually grate with a grater. Steam the shredded cauliflower for about 4-5 minutes.
Then onto the SECRET STEP! Place the steamed cauliflower onto a clean thin dish towel and wrap it up. Then SQUEEEEEZE all the excess moisture out! You will be surprised at how much water will come out. Make sure you have about 4 cups of cauliflower when you’re done.
2) Making Pizza Dough & Shaping It
Add the strained cauliflower in a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Place the “dough” onto parchment paper (I use a Silpat) on your pizza pan and shape it. Keep the dough about 1/3 inch thick. I actually just spread the dough on a stoneware bar pan. This makes a thin crust, which we love. Place the crust in the oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes. Crust should be firm and golden brown.
Note: Parchment paper or Silpat is a must to use for this recipe because the cauliflower crust will stick to the pan otherwise. Do not use wax paper – it will burn at high heat. Also, the crust will shrink a little when it’s cooked.
3) Add your toppings!!
Top the baked crust with your favorite pizza toppings. We typically use sauce, cheese, tomatoes, and mushrooms. You can use any veggies or meat. Be creative! Return the pizza to the oven and bake for another 10-13 minutes – or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Slice and serve! Mmmmmm…..Enjoy!!!
Make Ahead Tip: Recipe can be made ahead and crust can be kept frozen (in foil) until ready to use. You can also double the recipe to make 2 crusts, freezing one of the cooked crusts for later. Simply thaw, add toppings, and bake at 400* when ready to use.
