Olive~Me & Co. Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Adapted from www.domesticate-me.com

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 2 ½ cups cauliflower, chopped in food processor or blender
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg

 

Topping:

  • 3 teaspoons Olive~Me & Co. olive oil (Citrus Habanero, Italian Herb, Roasted Garlic, Parmesan, Basil, Oregano, Jalapeno, etc)
  • Veggies and meats of your choice
  • ¼ cup pizza sauce or pesto
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

  1. Place a pizza stone or baking sheet in your oven and pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees. On a pizza peel or cutting board, place a piece of parchment sprayed with non-stick cooking oil.
  2. The cauliflower should be the texture of sand.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and microwave, covered, for 4 minutes.
  4. Let your cauliflower cool completely. When cool, place the cauliflower in a towel and wring it tightly (do it in 2 batches). You want to remove as much moisture from the cauliflower as possible.
  5. Place the cauliflower in a mixing bowl and add the cheese, spices, and the egg. Mix until well combined.
  6. Form the dough into a ball and place it on the parchment-lined pizza peel or cutting board. Place a second piece of sprayed parchment on top of the dough ball and roll it out into a circle about 1/6-inch in thickness. Remove the second sheet of parchment and briefly set your pizza aside while you prepare your toppings.
  7. Roast, grill, or sauté the vegetables and meats.
  8. Carefully transfer your dough to the hot pizza stone/baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the dough is golden brown. Carefully remove it from the oven.
  9. Spread the sauce over the pizza dough and sprinkle with an even layer of mozzarella. Top with the rest of your toppings.
  10. Return the pizza to the oven for another 5-7 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling slightly.
  11. Drizzle your favourite Olive~Me & Co. Olive Oil on top of pizza. Let your pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing to make sure that the crust stays intact.
