Mediteranian Pizza and Cauliflower Pizza Crust

First of all "Paleo Pizza" is pretty much an oxymoron. So if you are expecting this to taste like Round Table, you're dreaming. There cannot be bread or cheese with Paleo, so it can be quite the challenge. This was my first attempt at a crust without almond flour. I figured that since my cauli-tots were pretty hearty, why not stiffen the mixture and try to make a pizza crust. For the most part I was happy with the results. My only regret was that I made it late at night and never tried it fresh. I ate it reheated at lunch and I still found it pretty satisfying. (hence the beautiful picture on a paper plate) I will try it again soon and eat it fresh next time! I could have easily eaten half the crust since the portion isn't too large. I would recommend eating it all fresh that night! Or if you must wait, store the crust separately and put the toppings on just before eating.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

1 bag frozen cauliflower
2 heads of garlic
1 cup pork rinds, ground 
2-3 eggs
1 teaspoon oregano
olive oil  in a misto sprayer
parchment paper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Defrost the cauliflower in a large bowl. Drain off excess water.
2.  In a food processor grind up pork rinds. Add pork rinds to drained cauliflower as well as remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Note: Start with two eggs into the bowl and only add the third if the mixture is too dry.
3.  Lay parchment paper on a baking sheet and spray generously with olive oil. With a spatula, spread out the cauliflower “dough” mixture into a 14-inch circle. Bake for 45 minutes. Carefully separate the crust from the paper using a large spatula or flipper. Flip the crust over and bake for another 15-20 minutes until browned on top.  Add on marinara and favorite pizza toppings.

  1. that looks good!! I'm adding this to my recipe box in the kitchen! I'm eating paleo, too... but I haven't cut dairy 100% ... I still do occasional yogurt, cheese, butter, and ice cream for a treat. I haven't had milk in a while.. but I won't turn it down if I'm offered it.

  2. If your not dairy free, I'd add cheese!!

  3. Looks great Kelly! Thanks for sharing this on Chowstalker!!

  4. A couple of questions ... How big a bag of cauliflower did you use--10 or 16 oz? Also, just to clarify, is it 2 heads of garlic (20-30 cloves) or just 2 cloves? Thanks!
