How To Make This Cauliflower Pizza Crust
This recipe is ridiculously easy to make. All it takes is 3 base ingredients and 15 minutes of prep.
- Cauliflower – it’s a low-carb vegetable that needs to be turned into fine rice to make the base.
- Egg – the beaten egg in this recipe provides some of the binding to the crust. It’s possible to use a flaxseed egg as an egg-free replacer.
- Grated Mozzarella – this low-carb cheese brings crispiness to the keto pizza crust. Use full-fat cheese for a crispier pizza.
Before you start, you need to make cauliflower rice.
How To Make Cauliflower Rice
Keto pizza crusts made of cauliflower are very easy to make. Let’s have a look at what you need to succeed in this delicious crispy cauliflower pizza crust anytime.
First, you need a food processor to pulse your cauliflower florets into a rice-like texture.
Otherwise, you can directly buy cauliflower rice from the store. We call cauliflower rice the result of grated or pulsed cauliflower florets.
Cooked cauliflower is an excellent Keto-friendly vegetable. Carbs in cauliflower only reach 1.7 grams of net carbs per 100 grams once cooked. So this great recipe is perfect if you’re on the keto diet!
After your cauliflower is pulsed, you need to steam your cauliflower rice. The best technique is to steam your cauliflower in a microwave-proof bowl.
Obviously, if you don’t have a microwave, you need to use a vegetable steamer or boil your cauliflower rice in water.
Finally, for a perfect result, drain all the residual water left in your steamed cauliflower rice. You need a clean towel for this.
You must obtain a ball of steamed cauliflower, like a dough, very dry and compact.
Making The Crust
Transfer the cauliflower rice to a mixing bowl. Add the cheese and beaten egg and combine the batter thoroughly.
Line a baking sheet with lightly oiled parchment paper and press the keto cauliflower crust onto it.
Give it the shape you want, round or rectangular.
The thinner you press the cauliflower crust, the crispier it will be after baking!
Pre-bake the crust for 15 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
To make the perfect, crispy under-crust, flip it after it’s prebaked before adding any topping.
Topping The Pizza
This keto crust recipe can be used as a pizza crust replacement, and therefore most regular pizza toppings can be used.
In order to limit carbs, opt for a no-sugar-added tomato paste or tomato sauce or, my favorite option, a homemade keto pizza sauce.
You can also use sour cream as a zero-carb option. Our favorite keto pizza toppings are:
- Italian Seasoning
- Some spicy olive oil
Mushrooms, zucchini, or eggplant release water on your pizza crust and soften the crust.
I recommend cooking these ingredients in a frying pan before adding them to the crust.
You can store the baked pizza slices in the fridge for a few days in the fridge. Rewarm it in the oven for 10 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
It’s also possible to freeze the pizza slices in zip-lock bags for up to 3 months in the freezer.
