Cauliflower Crust Pizza (Gluten-Free & Nut-Free)

I have posted a Cauliflower Crust Pizza recipe before.. But I changed it up a bit for those of you who are allergic to nuts and couldn’t make it with the almond meal/flour. To be honest, I preferred the crust made with the almond meal a bit more than the brown rice flour. Both crusts are very tasty…. but if I had to choose between the two (and if you do not have any allergies) try my original recipe! — click here!

Cauliflower pizza #2

Crust Ingredients:
1 Medium head of cauliflower
2 tbsp fresh Basil
1/2 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1 egg
1 tbsp egg whites
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup brown rice flour (or gluten-free flour of your choice)
1/4 tsp salt

Directions:
1. Chop up cauliflower into fine pieces or use a food processor (yield approximately 2.5 cups).
2. Once processed, put in a covered microwavable container and microwave for 4 minutes.
3. Allow cooling on a kitchen towel. When ready to handle, ring out as much water as possible from the cauliflower using the towel.
4. Add dry ingredients, mix. Followed by the wet ingredients, mix.
5. Use your hands to form it into a dough ball.
6. Lay out the dough on a baking sheet with parchment paper sprinkled with olive oil in your desired pizza shape.
7. Cook at 450 F until golden brown (~10 mins)
8. Remove from the oven and add your desired toppings.
9. Cook for another ~12 minutes at 450 F.

Once you have added your toppings, change the oven temperature to 375F. Bake until the cheese is fully melted toppings are browning. I added chicken to mine — it was precooked on the barbecue.
