Homemade Cauliflower Dough For Pizza

For this recipe you will need:

  • One small cauliflower
  • Two eggs
  • Two minced garlic cloves
  • 200 grams shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
  • One teaspoon of dried oregano

Preparation:

First, preheat the oven to 200C. Take one large baking pan and place one baking sheet on the pan, so the dough doesn’t stick to the pan. Next, separate the fresh cauliflower from the head and put them in a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower turns into crumbs (almost like rice texture). You will need about 4 cups of these crumbs.

In a large bowl mix the cauliflower crumbs with the eggs, garlic, spices, and cheese. Then, split the mixture into two equal parts, and distribute one portion per each baking sheet to get a round shape of a pizza.

Cook the cauliflower dough in the oven for 25-30 minutes, and then remove it. The dough should have golden almost brown color and should be crispy. Next add the pizza toppings (you can put pieces of mozzarella, cherry tomato slices, and olives), and continue to bake another 5-8 minute or until the mozzarella starts to melt.
