Trying to find low carb/gluten free recipes that taste really good has been a challenge. I often think that because something is "healthy" for you, people think it has to taste bad. SOOO NOT TRUE with this pizza. To say I love this pizza would be an understatement. My son, who HATES cauliflower, steals my pieces when I'm not looking. And my skeptic husband, well.....let's just say this is on the menu for dinner tonight... AGAIN! :D

The way I prepared this and cut into 12 pieces, the nutritional information is: 115 calories, 2g carbs, 8g fat, 11g of protein.

This low carb and gluten-free pizza crust is so good. It makes you feel like you're cheating on a diet, but you're not. This does not turn out like traditional pizza crust and get perfectly crisp like a regular dough. It's still super good, though, and a delicious option if eating low carb. We used the seasonings Laura suggested and they were perfect. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy! We think with the toppings this crust could fool someone who claims they don't like cauliflower.

The edges of this crust will get a little dark and almost seem burnt, but don't worry. The rest of the crust is golden brown. Picking up a slice, though, may be hard to eat so have a fork handy. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Low Carb/Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza

Step-by-Step

  1. TO RICE THE CAULIFLOWER: Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks.
  2. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater).
  3. Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself. After microwaving, squeeze the excess water from the cauliflower.

    One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  4. TO MAKE THE CRUST: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg, and mozzarella.
  6. Add oregano, crushed garlic, and garlic salt; stir. You can tweak this recipe by adding or subtracting ingredients to more suit your family's tastes.
  7. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9" round, or whatever shape pan you are using. I use my Pampered Chef rectangular baking stone.
  8. OPTIONAL: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning.
  9. Bake cauliflower crust at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Over temps vary so please don't forget to check on your crust.
  10. Remove crust from oven when golden brown.
  11. Now is the time to add your sauce, toppings, and cheese.
  12. Place pizza back in oven and broil on high just until cheese is slightly browned and melted.
  13. ENJOY! :D
