In the battle of fathead vs cauliflower crust the cauliflower has by far the least amount of calories:
Calories Per Slice:
- Cauliflower Crust 66
- Fathead Crust 144
While I have to admit I do prefer the fathead style, at less than half of the calories, the cauliflower crust is a great alternative when calorie restricting.
Seriously though... I could not live without pizza. It's just a fact at this point. Some people have chocolate, I have pizza. I love it. And the discovery of keto friendly pizza crust was a game changer. More importantly it is incredibly easy to make.
- 2 cups cauliflower (Trader Joe's Organic Riced Cauliflower ⅔ of bag)
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 2 teaspoon parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup of pizza sauce
- 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
- Garnish with Basil
- Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven at 425°
Microwave cauliflower for 7 minutes on high. (I use the Trader Joe's frozen organic cauliflower rice, It's ⅔ of the bag), mix half way through.
Blend in food processor so it's almost like mashed potatoes.
Mix all dry ingredients evenly: Mozzarella, Parmesan and all seasonings.
Add cauliflower and mix, followed by egg and mix thoroughly. Use a hand mixer if available.
Place the ball of dough on a sheet of parchment paper with another sheet over it. Roll out the dough to preferred size. Note: this dough doesn't need to be super thin to work well.
Once rolled out shape the dough and flip up the edges a bit to mold a crust.
Slide parchment and dough onto baking sheet and let cook for 12-15 minutes.
Once it's done let it cool and add your topping.
Dressing the Pizza...
Spread ⅓ cup of pizza sauce evenly leaving a little bit of room around the edges.
Spread 2 cups mozzarella cheese over the pizza sauce
fresh sliced basil and Parmesan garnished on top
put back in oven for 7-10 depending on preference
