Cauliflower n Cheese Crust Pizza

Cauliflower n Cheese Crust Pizza

I had been planning on making the cauliflower crust pizza for a while but kept putting it off indefinitely. The reasons are many, one of them being its high fat and high calorie composition. And more importantly, it also felt like one hell of an effort. But ultimately my curiosity to taste it took over and here it is!!

Cauliflower florets (riced) - 2 cups
Parmesan cheese or Mozarella cheese - 1cup
Egg - 1
Mixed herbs

For topping
Tomato sauce (Tomato puree, fresh garlic, mixed herbs, black pepper powder, salt)
Any vegetables of your choice
Little cheese


Wash and dry the cauliflower well
Cut it into florets
Pulse the florets in a food processor or grate it to form rice like granular consistency
Take 2 cups of riced cauliflower and transfer to a non-stick pan to remove the moisture
Keep stirring on low heat till most of the moisture is gone
Do not brown it
Let it cool
Beat one egg in a bowl
Add the cheese and mix well
Add the riced cauliflower
Mix well with salt and herbs
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and transfer this mixture onto it to make a pizza base
Gently pat the mixture to make a base of your desired shape with a thickness of quarter of an inch
Keep the edges slightly thick so that it doesn't burn
Now place it in a pre-heated oven at 200 c for 20mins
Remove and let it cool

Spread the tomato sauce and add any topping of your choice with little cheese (if required)
Bake it again at 200c for 10mins
Your pizza is ready!!
