This is a great and healthy substitute for pizza crust!IMG_4786

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups raw cauliflower rice
  • 1 egg, beaten, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
 (or any other seasonings you want)
  • pinch of salt

 

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400F,

Step 1: Begin by making your cauliflower “rice.”

Simply pulse batches of raw cauliflower florets in a food processor, until a rice-like texture is achieved.

Step 2: Cook & Strain the rice.

Fill a large pot with about an inch of water, and bring it to a boil. Add the “rice” and cover; let it cook for about 4-5 minutes. Drain into a fine-mesh strainer.

Now here comes the secret: Once you’ve strained the rice, transfer it to a clean, thin dishtowel.Wrap up the steamed rice in the dishtowel, twist it up, then SQUEEZE all the excess moisture out! It’s amazing how much liquid will be released, which will leave you with a nice and dry pizza crust.

Step 3: Make & Shape the dough.

In a large bowl, mix up your strained rice, beaten egg, and spices.

Don’t be afraid to use your hands! You want it very well mixed. It won’t be like any pizza dough you’ve ever worked with, but don’t worry– it’ll hold together!

Press the dough out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (It’s important that it’s lined with parchment paper, which is not to be confused with WAX paper– they’re very different!)

Keep the dough about 1/3″ thick, and make the edges a little higher for a “crust” effect, if you like.

Step 4: Bake!

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400F. (or until edges are crispy. Flip if desired. Parchment paper or a pizza stone are ideal!)

Top with favorite toppings and bake a further 15-20 mins
