Cauliflower Pizza Crust
I decided to try my hand at the Cauliflower pizza crust that I've seen popping up here and there on Pinterest.
Little did I know that the real challenge would be in keeping the kids out of the kitchen while I made it. I was concerned that if they saw what the crust was made of they would decide before they tried. And the decision would not be the one I would like.
I'm not going to lie, this is pretty labor intensive. You can cut down on a lot of the time spent if you have a food processor. I do not.
2 out of 3 kids approved of the pizza. Out of those 2, 1 of them suspected the crust was made of cauliflower and went on to eat 3 pieces.
The cast of characters
Begin by grating or processing the cauliflower. I used two heads and that made two medium sized pizzas. You want the cauliflower to look like rice.
One of the tricks to a crispy crust is putting the cauliflower in a thin kitchen towel and wringing all the water out of the cauliflower.
In a bowl, mix your cauliflower, 2 eggs, 2/3 cup ricotta cheese, 2 tsp Italian seasoning.
I preheated my pizza stone in a 400 degree oven.
Take half of your cauliflower mixture and spread it out on your hot pizza stone. I sprinkled the spread out crust with garlic salt and black pepper for flavor.
Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. The edges got very crispy and the middle was strong enough to hold up straight.
Once the crust is baked, add your sauce, cheese, and other toppings you choose.
