Cauliflower Crust Paleo Pizza

13 Jul

There are tons of paleo cauliflower crust recipes out there, this is what I used, you can put pretty much add any toppings you want on it.  I don’t eat dairy so there’s no cheese on this one but honestly this was so good I didn’t miss the cheese at all!

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • no sugar/salt added tomato sauce (I use Frank’s Fra Diavolo found at Highland Park Market, it’s AMAZING!)
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 small summer squash
  • Handful of sliced mushrooms of choice (I use baby bellas)
  • 3 leaves of fresh basil
  • 3(ish) strips of bacon
  • garlic powder
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • Coconut or Olive Oil

Cauliflower Crust

Instructions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Using a hand grater or food processor, finely chop/grate the entire head of cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl
  • Microwave grated cauliflower for 8 minutes
  • Once cooked, allow to cool and using paper towels get all the excess water out of it
  • Mix in 2 eggs and a little bit of garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper (depending on your taste) – I mix by hand to make sure everything is combined really well
  • Use a little olive or coconut oil to grease a cookie sheet or pizza pan
  • Spread out cauliflower mixture on the pan into a pizza shape (I’ve seen rectangles but I like my pizza round) as thin as you’d like it
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes

Toppings

Instructions:

  • Heat skillet on medium heat
  • Slice zucchini and summer squash into about 1/2 inch thick slices
  • Once skillet is hot, add bacon, sliced zucchini, summer squash, and mushrooms and cook until they’re a little soft (I don’t like mushy veggies) and until the bacon is cooked enough for you (I cook my bacon for a few minutes before adding the veggies because I like crispy bacon)

Now, lets put it all together!

  • Add the sauce to your cauliflower crust (however much you like, I like mine a saucy)
  • Chop (or break apart with your hands) the leaves of basil and put that on top of the sauce
  • Add your veggies and bacon (I break my bacon into pieces before putting it on top)
  • Bake in the 350 degree over for 5-10 minutes just to heat everything up and let it come together
  • ENJOY!
