Cauliflower Crust Pizza

A low carb, low calorie, low sodium, healthy and yummy, gluten free vegan pizza? Why yes, I like that, I like that a lot. This my dear friends is what I like to refer to as a little slice of heaven here on earth.


ingredients:
Serves 4. 

execution:
  • wash and chop the cauliflower into small pieces
  • boil in water for 4 minutes until softened
  • place in a food processor until it looks like pieces of rice
  • preheat the oven to 450 degrees
  • in a bowl, combine riced cauliflower, 2 cups of Daiya cheeze, oregano, and garlic
  • on a non-stick oiled cookie sheet, use your hands to form and pat the cauliflower mix into a 12" round pizza "crust" that will look like this:


  • Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes
  • While crust is browning, boil the tomatoes in hot water until mushy. Drain water, and chop tomatoes as they become a sauce like texture.  
  • Remove crust from oven, and add remaining Daiya cheeze, tomatoes, and your personal toppings.
  • Place under broiler for 4 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes, and then enjoy!
We ate this up quicker than you can say "low carb, low calorie, gluten free vegan pizza." Seriously though! Delicious, light, fun, and different, it's a guaranteed hit. Serve with a side of kale for a heart-healthy meal.

If you personalize your cauliflower crust pizza with some awesome veggie toppings, please do share.

  2. What if I can't use the Daiya? DO you have a suggestion for a substitute?

    1. Are you OK with soy cheese? If so, any soy cheese or regular cheese will work! You can also replace the Daiya with egg-replacer or egg when making the crust. Let me know.. hope this help. xo
