This IS really good. I have tried to do this a few times with a FAIL… but then I found this recipe and it is really great. This is like ‘pick it up off the plate’ pizza crust. Not soggy like others I have tried. Ok here we go..
Things you need:
1 head cauliflower (roughly chopped)
2 cloves garlic (or powder)
1/2 cup Mozzarella grated
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp fresh chopped oregano
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil ( or dry is that’s what you have)
Toppings of your choice:
Put chopped cauliflower in the food processor and blend until it turns into a pasty mush.
Now you want to put the cauliflower into a cheesecloth and squeeze until all liquid is out. This takes a little work. You can do this the night before and let the cauliflower dry out more but I just squeezed the crap out of it until there was no more liquid
This was a bit of work so I had a glass of wine to help me along.
Mix all remaining ingredients in with the cauliflower. Mixing it well.
Grease your pan and form an even layer on the bottom of the pan with cauliflower mixture. I used as icing spatula.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and slightly firm.
Now this is where you can make a decision. If you add your cheese topping and melt it in over and then add the rest of the ingredients and just put back in over for 5 minutes it will be less likely to get soggy… or don’t add any really moist ingredients until it’s out of the oven, like the tomatoes.
I added everything and then baked it for 15 more minutes.
This turned out really good. I used this crust recipe for garlic cheese fingers for the kids too.
Hope you all give cauliflower crust a try. So healthy and yummy.
