Cauliflower Pizza Crust - Phase 3

Yield: 6 slices.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Serving size: 2 slices 

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 medium head of cauliflower (4 cups of small florets)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together chia seeds and water, then refrigerate at least a 1/2 hour.
  3. Chop cauliflower into small florets, then steam until fall-apart soft. Drain fully.
  4. Stir the almond flour with the oregano, garlic, and salt.
  5. Preheat oven to 450 F. Once cauliflower cools a little, place it in a clean dish towel or cheesecloth over a sink or bowl, and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. At least 2/3 cup water should come out – You want it as dry as possible.
  6. Place the squeezed-out cauliflower into a medium bowl and add the chia mixture. Mash and stir well. Then stir in the almond flour mixture. Form into a ball, and place on top of the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  7. Pat into a circle, then use another sheet of parchment on top (and a rolling pin, if desired) to spread the circle to about 1/4 inch thick. (Take off the top sheet of parchment before baking.)
  8. Bake 25 minutes, or until lightly browned with crispy edges. Remove and add toppings of choice (you can add melted cashew cheese with it). Bake an additional 8 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes, then slice and enjoy!

    Made this for my family last weekend and everyone loved it!! That includes a 3 yo and 6 yo. Tasty and easy to make. Only edit would be to double the cauliflower and chop it really fine
