DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Break the cauliflower into floret's and use a food processor or cheese grater to shred the cauliflower into little bits. It takes about 10-12 pulses in the food processor to get the right consistency, being careful not to over process and make a puree.
  • Transfer to a large bowl and cook in the microwave, uncovered, for 8 minutes on high heat. It is not necessary to add water, the cauliflower will steam on it's own.
  • Let the cauliflower cool slightly and mix in all remaining crust ingredients.
  • Spray a pizza pan or sheet pan with non-stick spray liberally and spread out the mixture. Go for a pretty thin pizza, this will ensure crispiness. Spray the top lightly with cooking spray.
  • Place the crust in the oven and cook for 20 minutes. It will get crispy and dark in many areas. Important tip: before you top the crust with toppings, be sure to take a large spatula and very gently loosen the bottom of the crust from the pan. This will prevent it from sticking as you cook it further.
  • Top the crust with your favorite toppings and bake until cheese is melted, about 10-15 minutes, and turn on the broiler for 2-3 minutes to crisp the top to your liking.
  • Tips for the perfect low carb pizza crust:
  • Spray a non-stick pan liberally with non-stick spray.
  • Be sure to cook the crust on a high temperature, 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until crispy on the bottom and firm on the top. Every oven varies but the key is to have a crispy bottom so that the pizza stays together and slices up nicely.
  • After the crust is pre-baked, loosen it gently with a spatula so that it does not stick to the pan as you continue to cook the pizza with toppings.
  • If you go a little lighter on the sauce and toppings, the pizza will hold together better. The Margherita Pizza toppings of buffalo mozzarella and vine ripe tomato slices are a perfect choice.
  • Follow these tips and you will have perfect low carb pizza that is so delicious that you won't feel like you are missing a thing.
  • I hope you let me know how it works out for you and what your favorite toppings are!
