Pizza Crust
Surprisingly good!!
1 small head Cauliflower
¼ cups Parmesan Cheese
¼ cups Mozzarella Cheese
¼ teaspoons Kosher or Real/Sea Salt
½ teaspoons Dried Basil
½ teaspoons Dried Oregano
½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
1 Tablespoon Almond Meal (optional)
1 whole Egg
Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 450ºF. On a cutting board, place a large piece of parchment paper and spray it with
nonstick cooking oil.
Wash and thoroughly dry a small head of cauliflower. Cut off the florets—you don’t need much stem. Pulse
in your food processor for about 30 seconds, until you get powdery snow like cauliflower. You should end
up with 2 to 3 cups cauliflower “snow”. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover. Cook for 4
minutes. Dump cooked cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and allow to cool for a bit before attempting the
next step.
Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, wrap it up in the dish towel and wring it. You want to squeeze
out as much water as possible. This will ensure you get a chewy pizza like crust instead of a crumbly mess.
Dumped squeezed cauliflower into a bowl. Now add Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, kosher salt,
dried basil, dried oregano, garlic powder, and a dash of red pepper if you want. You may also added 1
tablespoon almond meal if your cauliflower yield is closer to 2 cups; this is optional and not necessary if you
have closer to 3 cups of cauli snow. Now add the egg and mix away. Hands tend to work best.
Once mixed together, use your hands to form the dough into a crust on your oiled parchment paper. Pat it
down thoroughly, you want it nice and tightly formed together. Don’t make it too thick or thin either.
Using the cutting board, slide the parchment paper onto your hot pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven.
Bake for 8-11 minutes, until it starts to turn golden brown. Remove from oven.
Add sauce, cheese, and toppings (veggies). Slide parchment with topped pizza back in the hot oven and
cook for another 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese is melted, bubbly, and slightly golden.
Allow it to cool for 2 minutes.

brownies-the cacao adds an extra great chocolate flavor!
Hint: if doing no sugar then just take out the honey and add
stevia about 15-20 drops and more or less as desired!

ingredients in a bowl! pour batter in 9
