Obviously we LOVE pizza in this house, and we were really missing out by not trying the cauliflower crust sooner. CAULIFLOWER CRUST PIZZA FOR THE WIN! It still has crunch, tons of flavor, and is super light on carbs. WIN WIN WIN!! I like it.

I was so excited to join in on the Chopped At Home Challenge again presented by Sargento. You might remember when I participated last year. I still dream about that yummy recipe! This year, the flavor challenge was Cauliflower, Mushrooms, and Leeks. And of course CHEESE! Sargento Sharp Cheddar Finely Shredded to be exact. Only the best! It was so fun to dream up a recipe that used all four ingredients. You can see all the entries HERE. What would you have made?

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups cauliflower
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon good quality pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup Sargento Sharp Cheddar Finely Shredded
  • 8 pepperonis
  • 1/4 cup crimini mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 tablespoons chopped leeks

Instructions

  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and add a splash of water. Cover. Microwave for 3 minutes or until tender. Allow to cool.
  3. Place cauliflower in a high powered blender or food processor and pulse until fully chopped and in tiny pieces. It will almost be grated.
  4. Add the egg, 1 1/4 cups mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and basil. Stir to combine all of the ingredients.
  5. Pour the cauliflower mixture onto the baking sheet and form the shape of crust you want. Pat down to create a flat surface.
  6. Lightly spray with cooking spray, then bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch.
  7. Spoon on the sauce, followed by both types of cheeses, leeks, mushrooms, and pepperonis.
  8. Bake for other 10 minutes until melty.
  9. Enjoy!

Just finished this...not a crumb left! Question: Can the crust be made ahead and frozen or would it become mushy after thawing? Could I make the night before and add toppings the next day? Thanks for any advice...This was delicious!
    Becky Hardin
    Yay! So glad you liked it! I'm totally not sure about freezing...although you could prep it and keep it in the fridge premade and I think that would work. Let me know if you try it that way!
Krissy
Hi Becky! This looks so good and I would love to try it. Can you tell what the approx kcarb count would be if I made it just like yours? Thanks so much!
