Cauliflower makes a great pizza crust because it takes on the taste of what it’s cooked with. Plus it’s good for you, with just one serving of cauliflower you’ll receive 77% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. Cauliflower also contains sulforaphane, which has been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby slowing tumor growth. Strive for a healthy lifestyle and enjoy your Cauliflower Crust Pizza!
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425ºF.
Grate the cauliflower using a box grater until you have two cups of cauliflower crumbles. Steam until soft and let cool.
Mix in the egg, one cup mozzarella, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Once combined, pat into a 10-inch round prepared pizza pan. Coat lightly with melted butter or coconut oil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
Top the pizza with the sauce, ¼ cup mozzarella, grape tomatoes, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, another 10 minutes. Top with basil before serving.
