Cauliflower Crust - Pretty damn tasty

Cauliflower Crust - Pretty damn tasty

If you follow us on instagram you know how much we love pizza.  So when people started making a fuss about “cauliflower crust” for lower carb pizza dough, we were very, very skeptical. There is nothing like a soft doughy pizza crust to make your mouth water, and cauliflower didn't seem to have that same allure (or any allure at all, tbh). 

However, one should never dismiss something without trying it, and sure enough our cauliflower crust recipe is damn good.   Try this if you are cutting carbs, or just want to shake things up. .

Cauliflower Crust

  • 3 heaping cups fresh cauliflower
  • 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 cornstarch egg (1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Roughly cut the cauliflower into medium sized pieces and put in a medium sized pot.  Boil for 15-20 minutes, or until cauliflower is very soft. Drain the water and allow it to cool.  With a cheese cloth, squeeze remaining water from the cauliflower. You should be able to squeeze the cauliflower into a smooth paste.  Removing the water is essential to making your dough stick together.  Add the garbanzo bean flour and cornstarch egg then mash or blend it into an even paste.  Add the spices and nutritional yeast and mix again.  On an oiled pan or parchment paper spread the cauliflower dough evenly.  Bake for 30 minutes, or until the bottom is browned and top is golden. Top with your favorite sauce and toppings and enjoy!

 Ideas for toppings:

  • spinach
  • barbecue sauce
  • pineapple slices
  • seitan
  • broccoli
  • vegan pesto
  • textured vegetable protein
  • vegan cheese
  • leftover stir fry
  • leftover anything!
