Cauliflower Crust Ingredients:
- 1 package Trader Joe’s Frozen Riced Cauliflower (thawed)
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (or 1 tsp each oregano, basil, thyme)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules (or powder)
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Thaw the cauliflower in advance of cooking.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
I used a large tea towel to absorb as much water as possible, then put in a large, non-stick skillet to light cook and get any remaining moisture out. Let it cool in the pan. If it still feels too wet, squeeze more out with a towel or paper towels. You want it as dry as possible!
While it’s cooling – lightly beat the 2 eggs and shred your mozzarella and Parmesan.
Add cauliflower to a large mixing bowl. Stir in eggs, mozzarella, Parmesan, seasonings and salt and pepper. Mix everything together until fully combined.
Put a sheet of parchment paper on a 9×13 baking sheet. Smooth out your crust mixture until it’s about 1/4″ thick. Make sure you don’t have any holes! Bake for about 15-18 minutes or until golden.
Gently slide the parchment paper and baked crust on a rack and put it back on the pan. (This isn’t necessary but it will help keep the crust a little more “crusty”.
Top with pizza sauce of your choice – or my easy homemade sauce is below – and whatever toppings you like. I did a mix of mozzarella, black olives, mushrooms, sausage and pepperoni. But you do you! Place into oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 3-5 minutes.
Cut into 8 pieces and serve!
Easy Homemade Pizza Sauce
- 8 ounce can tomato sauce
- 6 ounce can tomato paste
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon dried basil
- ½ teaspoon dried parsley
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Emeril’s spice blend (more or less to taste)
In a small sauce pan, mix all ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes. If your sauce is too thick you can thin it with a little water. If you have leftover sauce you can freeze it for next time!
