Cauliflower-Crusted Low-Carb Pizza

Hey y'all-- I apologize for disappearing for a few days. Work has been crazy, but things are just now starting to settle back into their usual routine.
 
Luckily for y'all, I'm back with one of my new absolute favorite low-carb recipes!
 
Cauliflower-Crust Pizza! I know it sounds strange, but you have got to try it! I'd even venture as far to say that it's some of the most delicious pizza I've ever had!
 
Plus, it's pretty healthy!
 
First of all, I shredded up about 2 1/2 cups of cauliflower into a bowl, which I then microwaved for about seven minutes.
 
Then, I added three eggs, 2 tablespoons of shredded parmezan, and about 4 ounces of mozarella cheese and mixed up all the ingredients until I ended up with a dough-like mixture. Then, I patted it down onto a greased pan (I chose to use tinfoil, to help with the clean-up) in the shape of a pizza. I stuck the dough mixture in the oven at about 425 degrees for ten minutes.


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Once the "dough" had warmed up in the oven, I took it out and began adding my pizza toppings - low carb pasta sauce, 4 more ounces of mozarella cheese, cut-up cherry tomatoes, and diced pancetta bits.

 
Then, I popped the pizza back in the oven for about 15 more minutes on 425 degrees and just kept an eye on it to make sure it didn't burn. Once it came out, I let it sit for about 15 minutes to cool and settle, and then it was time to dig in!
 

Hands down, some of the best-tasting pizza ever. You don't have to believe me-- try it for yourself!

  1. Hello, I really like this idea, I am saving this and when I go to town tomorrow I am going to pick up the cauliflower! The carbs is what makes so many peoples sugar readings high. This was good Thanks!
