Gluten-Free Cauliflower Crust

 

Aghhh!  Work has been so hectic I haven’t had a chance to cook much of anything, let alone write something about what I’m cooking.  So here is a recipe I’m SUPER excited about sharing after over a week without posting.  Unfortunately (well fortunately for us!) I won’t be posting for at least another week because we’re heading on a most excellent adventure.  I will be sure to fill in all of the details when we return…and I’ll also be introducing a brand new section of the site for product reviews.  Stay tuned!

Now let me give a quick introduction to this recipe.  Since my cauliflower Alfredo seemed to be wildly popular, I wanted to share another super easy recipe that uses this cruciferous vegetable which is fairly easy to find at this time of year.  This may also be just as trendy as the cauli-fredos.

Meet my cauliflower based pizza crust! This crust can be whipped up rather quickly and gets nice and crispy on the edges but is still easy to cut and not too hard in the center where you add the toppings.  This one really needs no big introduction because the pictures will speak for themselves.  Please leave comments and let me know what you think of this!  I love to hear from you all!

Ingredients (1 Pizza Crust)

  • 1/2 cup water mixed with 3 T flax seed meal
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower (measure after pulsing in food processor)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 1/3 cups garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 generous pinch of salt
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1 t fines herbs (mixture of chervil, parsley, tarragon, and chives)

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare large baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Hydrate the flax seed meal in water in a small bowl. Let sit at least 5 minutes.

3. In food processor with S-shaped blade, pulse cauliflower. Measure out 1 1/2 cups after processing. Texture should be coarse and grainy.

4. In large mixing bowl, mix the almond meal, flour, salt, cayenne, and herbs. Add the cauliflower and hydrated flax and stir until fully mixed. You can use your hands if needed.

5. Transfer the mixture to the baking sheet and spread evenly. It will be very sticky and batter-like.

6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

7. Remove from oven, add your pizza toppings and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until toppings are fully cooked.

8. Remove from oven, cool for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
