Low Carb, Cauliflower Crust Pizza


Finally. It's here.

Guilt-free pizza.

That's right. No more avoiding pizza, or limiting yourself to that tiny sliver of a piece that's only a tease anyway -- just to leave you feeling as guilty afterwards as if you'd eaten a whole pie.

Say good-bye to those days.

You may be asking, "how is this even possible?"

Cauliflower. Yes, my friends, cauliflower. The pizza crust is made from a blend of cauliflower that's been thrown through a food processor, combined with eggs and seasoning -- and that's it. Mind blown yet?

Now, you might be a little hesitant. I get it. I was too -- that is until I ate a slice of that deliciousness and my life was changed forever. Yup. Changed. Forever.

Check it out!

Ingredients:
CRUST

2 cups cauliflower
2 eggs
1 tsp-1 tbsp olive oil
seasonings of choice (Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, etc.)
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

TOPPINGS
(Use any you like, of course, but here are some of my favorites)
pizza sauce
mozzarella cheese
green peppers
onions
mushrooms
kale or spinach
tomato slices

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

For crust, cut 1/2 a head of a small cauliflower into small pieces, then run through a food processor until it becomes the consistency of grits. To remove excess water, place cauliflower into a cheesecloth or a towel and ring out the water. Measure out two cups of cauliflower and add to a bowl. Add eggs, olive oil, seasonings and cheese. Mix with fork or hands until all ingredients are mixed well.

You'll have enough "dough" for one large pizza or two small individual pizzas. Form dough into a ball and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Press the ball down until you form a circle. Continue pressing it out until you get your desired thinness of the crust.

Place in oven for 20 minutes.

Now, it's time to have fun. Add any and all toppings you like. Place back into the oven for about 10 minutes, long enough for the cheese to melt.

Enjoy!
