Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Sunday Lunch/Daily Dinners

Guess what I’m having for breakfast?

If you haven’t yet tried a cauliflower pizza crust, I’m here to tell you to jump on the bandwagon and join the crowds.

Oh, you can tell it’s not a real pizza crust, but, if you’re like us, you won’t really care.  It’s made with raw cauliflower, eggs and cheese — a lot of cheese — which is why you won’t care that’s it’s wheat free.

There are recipes all over the internet, but I used this one from YourLighterSide.com.  It comes together like a dream.  I got (2) 12″ crusts from a regular-sized head of cauliflower, pre-baked both as per the instructions, then froze one for later.  I’d much rather pull that out of the freezer than a DiGiorno, wouldn’t you?

cauliflower pizza crustI topped ours with a smear of Boursin cheese, a handful of slow-roasted tomatoes, chorizo, red onion, carmelized fennel, homemade pesto and a little more mozzarella, just for good measure.

The real test for a pizza, IMHO, is the next morning.  This one passed with flying colours.  The crust is still formidable enough to hold together pick up with one hand, which leaves me the other hand to type.

Go on, make this.  You know you want to.

    You know I want to…Wonder if I can get this one past my husband – who’s very serious about his pizza.

    Wow. It looks fantastic and sounds delicious. My brother has been on a low carb lifestyle for almost 20 years now and I know he loves his pizza but always has to pull the toppings off the crust to eat them. This is the perfect solution for him.

      It’s also great for diabetics looking to lower their carb count!

    If I can get this past my dad who doesn’t like cauliflower, he says cauliflower looks like brains, I would be very happy.
