Since most people enthusiastically replied oh yes I made it, but did not supply recipe I looked online and did a little picking and choosing.
1 box of cauliflower rice (what happens naturally when you use a food processor)
1/2 of a mozarella cheese ball
A handful of big slized parmassean cheese
Red pepper flakes
Put cauliflower in a bowl and microwave for 5 min. Make sure you use a potholder to take it out or you will burn your fingers! 😉 or you could use a microwave safe bowl if you like that sort of thing!
Here comes the tricky part, the cauliflower becomes very watery when you cook it so you are supposed to put it on a paper towel and squeeze it. I recommend putting the cauliflower in the fridge for 15 minutes after microwaving to avoid 3rd degree burns.
It took practically a half a roll of paper towels to squeeze the water out. It works great then splits and all your cauliflower starts escaping. So after I lost some I put a strainer under it in case that happened again!
I’m sure I could have squeezed some more but I was hungry and wanted to get this experiment going.
In a separate bowl, or plastic carry out container from your favorite take out place, don’t judge….
Combine mozzarella, parmasean, egg (beaten) or it doesn’t work very well, and add your spices then pour your cauliflower in.
Now for the messy stuff, pretend your making meatloaf and just start squeezing it all together.
Apparently you need parchment paper to put this on so tear off a sheet and put it on your baking sheet, or if you don’t have a baking sheet use the broiler pan like I did. Cost with some sort of spray then put your pizza dough right in the middle and start smashing it down. I made a circle because I don’t like rectangle pizza.
Bake in oven 400 for 15 minutes. I ended up cooking mine about 3 min more and this will be the place you have to decide how crisp you like it.
Bring it out add your toppings. I took a little pizza sauce, mozzarella and then my pepperoni and then baker for another 15 minutes and viola!
Cauliflower pepperoni pizza!
It’s not like real crust but if you are craving pizza and trying to avoid the crust this does very nicely!
Try it and let me know!
