Instructions

Using Fresh Cauliflower:

  1. Cut the head of cauliflower into florets, discarding the thick stem. 

  2. Pulse cauliflower florets into coarse crumbs and transfer into a bowl. You can steam riced cauliflower in a microwave fast and easy. Cover the bowl with a microwave plastic plate cover, or use a microwave steam bowl. (If you don’t have a microwave plate cover, you can use a ceramic plate to set on top of the bowl to cover it.)

  3. Cook riced cauliflower for about 6 1/2 minutes. Let the bowl stay in the microwave for another minute or so before taking it out. Use a towel to take out he bowl because it will be hot.

  4. The goal is to steam riced cauliflower until it’s very soft.

  5. Let the cauliflower cool down a bit so it’s not too hot to handle. Transfer riced cauliflower into doubled cheese cloth or a mesh vegetable bag and squeeze out all the liquid. 

  6. Place squeezed cauliflower into a mixing bowl and mix it with egg and fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Add salt, garlic powder, oregano, and a little dry parsley and mix the dough well. 

  7. Transfer the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure the baking sheet is wide enough for the size pizza you’re making. Pat the cauliflower dough out into a circle that’s about 1/4 inch thick. Shape the edges to make them smooth if it’s cracking.

  8. Bake the crust at 400° for 22-24 minutes, depending on the size, until crust is golden brown.

  9. Add your favorite toppings and bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.

Using Frozen Riced Cauliflower:

  1. Some packaged frozen riced cauliflower comes in a bag that can be easily put in a microwave to steam cauliflower right in the bag. Some packages are not safe to be used in a microwave. So make sure to read cooking instructions carefully first.

  2. Steam frozen riced cauliflower according to the package instructions but add extra 30-60 seconds of cooking time. This will make cauliflower softer and easier to mix into dough.

  3. Once riced cauliflower is cooked, used the same instructions as above to squeeze the liquid out and mix the pizza dough. 

  4. Bake at 400° for 22-24 minutes, until golden brown.

  5. Add your favorite toppings and bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.
