How to make cauliflower pizza crust

The main ingredient for your pizza crust is cauliflower rice. Nowadays, it can be found in many shops but read the ingredients list carefully to avoid unwanted substances.

If you prefer your crust without cheese, you can replace cheese with flaxmeal or almond meal (almond flour) or coconut flour. You might need to adjust the amount to make it work. A little bit of xanthan gum or psyllium husk powder will help as it acts as binding agent to prevent ingredients from separating.

Also if you want the best result, try making your own riced cauliflower. All you need is just 10 minutes and a blender. You’ll be rewarded with a big bowl of homemade rice that can be kept in the fridge for days or in the freezer for weeks, always ready for your culinary experiments.

How to Make Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Preheat the oven to 450 F. If you use raw cauliflower head, process cauliflower using a food processor until it becomes as small as rice grains. You can cook the cauliflower in a microwave or saute it in a hot pan for 1-2 minutes. Let it cool and squeeze out all its liquid. Mix all the crust ingredients in a bowl and season it well.
