Best Foolproof Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Prep Time 30 min
Cook Time 30 min
Yield 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups fresh cauliflowerets
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence or Italian seasoning

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a food processor, pulse cauliflower until it resembles rice (do not overprocess). Spread cauliflower on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes, rotating halfway, until lightly browned and tender. Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Place cauliflower on a clean towel; roll up and squeeze to remove excess liquid. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. On a parchment-lined 12-in. pizza pan, spread mixture to 1/4-in.-thickness, forming about a 10-inch circle. Bake until dry and golden brown, 22-25 minutes. Gently loosen crust from parchment. Place another 12-in. pizza pan over top of crust and flip over; peel off parchment. Slide crust back onto original pizza pan. Bake until golden brown and dry to the touch, about 5 minutes longer.
  4. Top as desired; bake until toppings are heated through, 8-10 minutes longer.
