Easy Homemade Cauliflower Pizza ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

Pretty much the easiest and, best tasting cauliflower crust that we’ve tested!

It’s nicely crispy, and just the right amount chewy. Great flavor & texture. It’s just really GOOD.

I’ve discovered that if I keep the method and the ingredients simple, then I’m more likely to actually make homemade pizza more often!

We have 6 teenagers, and while they might *say* that cauliflower crust pizza “isn’t their thing” …

I’ll casually pull one of these out of the oven, and it’s gone 2 minutes later – so you be the judge…๐Ÿ˜‰

Be sure to use YOUR favorite marinara sauce, because that’s where this pizza gets a lot of its flavor!

๐Ÿ’ก When shopping for store-bought sauce:

I like to make sure the marinara has no added sugar (tomatoes naturally contain sugar, but there shouldn’t be sugar on the ingredients list)

Store-bought jarred marinara sauce, or tomato sauce should only contain just a few simple ingredients such as tomatoes, garlic and herbs.

Why Cauliflower?

Cauliflower is a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous veggie family. (Learn more here)

Cauliflower is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich, and may boost both our heart and brain health!

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

Pizza Crust

  • 1 medium cauliflower, broken into florets
  • โ…“ cup shredded mozzarella
  • โ…“ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsps chopped fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt and
  • 1/4 freshly ground black pepper

Pizza Toppings

  • ยฝ cup marinara sauce
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella, shredded
  • 4 oz thinly sliced nitrate-free pepperoni
  • fresh picked basil

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees f. and line a 12-inch round pizza baking tray with parchment paper.

Place your cauliflower florets into a food processor and pulse until it resembles a fine meal. Transfer to a large bowl.

Add in the mozzarella, Parmesan, eggs, oregano, sea salt and pepper. Stir thoroughly to combine.

Place the cauliflower mixture onto the prepared baking tray and form into a ยฝ-inch-thick circle. Make sure the edges are not thinner than the center or they may brown too fast.

Bake your crust at 425 degrees f. for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are golden.

Once done, remove from the oven and layer your marinara sauce over the crust.

Top with shredded mozzarella and pepperoni. Return to your preheated oven and bake for additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Garnish your pizza with basil and serve.

Enjoy!
