Makes one 12-inch Pizza (2 servings)
For the Crust:
1 Head of Cauliflower
¼ Cup, Almond Flour
¼ cup, coconut flour
2 tablespoons, nutritional yeast (optional)
2 Tablespoons, fresh chopped parsley
1 Teaspoon, Salt
1 Tablespoon, Olive Oil
For the Toppings:
1 Can, Tomato Paste (sugar-free)
Kite Hill Dairy-Free Ricotta (or dairy free cheese of your choice)
Applegate Farms Pepperoni (or sugar free pepperoni of your choice)
1 Tablespoon, Oregano
1 Tablespoon, Fresh Chopped Parsley
1 Tablespoon, Fresh Chopped Basil
1 Teaspoon, Salt
For the Crust
Preheat oven to 450 degrees farenheight
Chop cauliflower into florets (or buy pre-chopped, I get Trader Joe’s brand)
Add cauliflower florets to food processor and “rice” by pulsing until you are left with rice-like pieces of cauliflower (If you don’t have a food processor, you can buy pre-riced cauliflower)
Place steamer in pot of water filled about ¼ of the way up, ensuring the water does not soak the cauliflower.
Steam cauliflower for approximately 5 minutes, or until slightly tender.
Pour steamed cauliflower onto cheese cloth or thin cloth towel, wrap, and thoroughly squeeze out all water from the cauliflower. The more you can drain, the better.
Place cauliflower in a mixing bowl and add egg, coconut flour, almond flour, and nutritional yeast (optional), parsley and salt. Mix with hands until it forms a dough-like texture, adding more flour if needed.
On your pizza sheet (or whatever baking sheet you are using), line with parchment paper and grease with a layer of extra virgin olive oil.
Place cauliflower mixture on parchment paper and press out into pizza crust shape using your hands or a floured-rolling pin (Tip: roll with a piece of parchment paper on top). Note: crust should be about 1/3 of an inch thick.
Place crust in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust begins to brown and harden.
Build your pizza
Remove crust from oven and add tomato paste, ricotta, pepperoni, basil, oregano and sprinkle with salt.
Place pizza back in the oven for another 5-7 minutes.
Remove pizza from oven and allow to cool (this step is important to allow the crust to harden).
Slice it up, serve warm and enjoy!
