Looking for a healthy spin on pizza night? I have just the recipe for you. This cauliflower crust is loaded with fiber, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, and omega-3 fats. Cauliflower also helps support our detox system, and contains protective anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It is the perfect healthy spin to make pizza night even better!

Ingredients:

1 large cauliflower

2 eggs

2 tsp oregano

1 tsp basil

2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp pepper

¼ tsp chili flakes

¼ cup mozzarella cheese

¼ cup parmesan cheese

¼ cup almond meal

Directions:

  1. Chop cauliflower into medium pieces and place in a food processor. Process until cauliflower resembles small pieces of rice but is not mushy.
  2. Place cauliflower in a steamer over simmering water and steam for 2 minutes to soften. Let cool.
  3. Place cooled cauliflower in a clean dish towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. Add cauliflower to large mixing bowl.
  4. Add eggs, spices, cheese, and almond meal and mix well to combine and form a dough.
  5. Form dough into 2 balls and place on parchment lined pizza or baking sheets.
  6. Flatten dough with your hands to form desired pizza shape about ¼-1/2 inch thick. Bake at 375o for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, top with your favourite pizza toppings and bake another 8-10 minutes, until lightly golden and bubbly.
