Cauliflower Pizza Cooked

Ingredients:

3 cups Cauliflower, cooked, mashed
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
2 large Eggs
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
2 tbsp Parmesan Cheese, grated
1/2 tsp Oregano, ground
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Parsley, dried
1/4 tsp Half Salt

Preparation:

Chop a whole cauliflower and boil until fork tender.  Let cool and place in food processor and puree.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and cauliflower in a bowl.
Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet brush olive oil.
Spread a thin layer of mixture in the pan and bake for 20 mins or until golden brown.
While the crust is in the oven, you can prepare the pizza toppings.

Pizza Topping:

Pizza sauce
Mozzarella
Olives, sliced
Pepperoni, sliced
Mushrooms, sliced

Bake at 350 or broil until the cheese is melted.  Let the crust cool and slice it into 12 pieces.  It keeps quite well wrapped in foil in the fridge.

    I think that’s why mine didn’t do so well – I’m too impatient for that ‘let it cool’ portion of recipes. ROFL.
    Doing it on the parchment is a great idea. I’ll have to get some.
    What does the coconut flour do for it?

  4. I think the coconut flour helps bind everything.
    The taste was so good, as you can see I didn’t have time to add pizza topping it was yummy all on it’s own.

  5. Marisa, does the addition of the coconut flour dry this crust enough to allow one to pick up a slice of pizza and eat with hands? Or is is soft and will require a fork?

  6. Yes the coconut flour helps keep the crust together so you can pick it up as if it was a slice of pizza. It has to be crispy on the bottom.

  7. Ok, the recipe I used was identical to yours accept that I used atkins baking mix in place of the flour and ommited the parm. The original recipe that I had called for garbanzo (chick pea) flour. So that means that the coconut flour would be the one big thing that is different if I were to try it your way. The trouble I had with the recipe I used before you suggested this one was the texture. It was nothing like bread. It was like, well it was like crushed veggies lol. I don’t see how swapping to coconut flour will make that big of a difference. What do you think Marisa? The texture is the the whole issue for me. I see no point in eating mock pizza if the pizza crust is not bread like.

  8. It’s not like a real pizza crust but it’s still really good. Swapping the coconut flour won’t change that.
