Cauliflower Pizza Crust


You guys, my picky eater ate vegetables, and I totally tricked him into it.  I didn't even have to lie!  I said, hey Jack, want to help me make pizza?  He said, yes, of course, and so we made the crust together.  Crust, that is, made up entirely of cauliflower.  Of course, I had turned the vegetable into "dough" before he came to help, so all he saw was this:

...and he never asked me what it was.  No lies!  But I'll tell you what that is, it's cauliflower.  An entire head of florets, coarsely chopped and then pulverized in a food processor.  Next, any excess water is squeezed out (I used a paper towel) to ensure a crispy crust, and then the cauliflower is combined with cheese, spices and egg whites.  Pizza dough!  

The crust is crispy and cheesy and delicious.  I made a plain cheese version for the kids and topped ours with thinly sliced zucchini and sautéed mushrooms.  This would be fun to make for the Super Bowl, and then you don't have to feel guilty about eating an entire bag of potato chips dipped in an entire bowl of french onion dip!    

Recipe here.

I'm usually with you, but I'm a bit leery of this one. I shall give it a try next week, but, if it sucks, I demand a refund! ;)

I'm so glad you made this! I have been wanting to, but then always read reviews that the crust doesn't form, falls apart, is soggy, etc. I will follow your recipe to a T and hopefully it works!
