There are few things I adore more in life than my family and pizza.

Before I go on to share my wonder drug of choice with you, I’d like to acknowledge a person and a vegetable for making my dreams come true.  First, like to profess my undying gratitude to cauliflower… for being the most versatile, interesting, low fat/carb/calorie and delicious whole food on the plant.

I didn’t use dairy cheese in this recipe, so instead, it’s Daiya Mozzarella (made from almonds) and it worked beautifully, but use whatever works for you.  I love using a non-dairy cheese because the texture when melted is even gooier than regular cheese. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with the following at all.  As a matter of fact, you may just feel a need to profess your undying love for me for enlightening you all to the magic of truly guilt-free pizza that you can eat every freaking day for the rest of your life if you want to.

You’re welcome.

Low Carb Oven Roasted Cauliflower Pizza

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 2 to 4
Ingredients
  • ½ head of cauliflower (or a bag of Trader Joe’s frozen cauliflower rice)
  • 3 egg whites
  • ¼ cup Daiya Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon oil of your choice
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ tablespoon oregano
  • ½ tablespoon rosemary
  • salt and pepper
  • Pizza sauce and toppings of your choice (I used Mike’s Yellow Curry Love in place of standard pizza sauce and it was freaking amazing…just sayin).
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425
  2. Prep a pizza pan or stone with a little oil or parchment paper
  3. Run the cauliflower through the food processor until it turns to a fine grain (finer than rice).
  4. In a pan, sauté the garlic in the oil for 2 minutes, then add cauliflower. Sautee for about 6 to 7 minutes.
  5. Add cauliflower to a large mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients.
  6. If the consistency is very moist, you can add a little flour of your choice (up to 2 tablespoons) until you have almost a dough-like consistency, but I prefer to wrap the dough in a clean tea towel and wring the shit out of it in the sink until all the water is gone.  But make sure you let the dough cool off first, okay?
  7. Spread dough on pizza stone or pan in a round 10 to 12 inch diameter (aim for ¼ inch in thickness)
  8. Pop the pan into the oven and cook the dough mixture for 15 minutes or until slightly browned.
  9. Meanwhile, prepare your toppings.
  10. Carefully remove pizza crust from the oven and add sauce and toppings. You can add more cheese here as you generally would with a regular dough.
  11. Bake for another 20 to 30 minutes depending on topping choices.
  12. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
  13. Slice and enjoy (note that the dough will not have a hard consistency like a crust, but should have a firmness to it).

Enjoy!

  1. While the phrase ‘low-carb’ didn’t catch my attention and made my eyes roll a bit, I am all into reducing/eliminating grains and sneaking in more and more veggies whereever I can. This is a fabulous idea that I will pin now and will certainly try. Looks great!
