Low-Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust 

• Nonstick Spray

• 2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 a large head)

• 1 large egg, lightly beaten

• 1 1/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (or vegan cheese substitute)

• 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

• Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

• 1/2 cup tomato sauce (aim for sugar-free!)

• 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half

• 2 cloves garlic, sliced

• 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

• Fresh basil leaves, optional


Step 1: Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425ºF.

Step 2: Grate the cauliflower using a box grater or food processor until you have two cups of cauliflower crumbles. Place in a large bowl and microwave for seven to eight minutes, or until soft. Remove from the microwave and let cool. (Alternate: Place cauliflower crumbles into a sauce pan, add 1 tbsp water, cover and allow to cook on medium heat for 5-6 minutes, or until soft)

Step 3: Mix in the egg, one cup mozzarella, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Once combined, pat into a 10-inch round on the prepared pizza pan. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.

Step 4: Top the pizza with sauce, 1/4 cup mozzarella, grape tomatoes, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, another 20 minutes. Top with basil before serving.

Bon appetit!
