  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp water

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cheese cloth
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Take one medium head of cauliflower, wash and chop up the florets.
  3. Place chopped cauliflower in a food processor, pulse for around 30 seconds until cauliflower looks like snow.
  4. Place cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 3-4 minutes covered.
  5. Let it cool before the next step.
  6. Place cooked cauliflower in a cheese cloth and squeeze out as much water as you can.
  7. Add cauliflower to a medium size bowl and add mozzarella, salt, pepper, basil, oregano, garlic, onion powder, and flours. Stir together.
  8. Add the eggs and stir until combined. If at this point, if the dough seems dry and crumbly, add 1-2 tbsp of water so that the dough sticks together. (I know this seems counterintuitive since we squeezed at the water out of the cauliflower, but just trust me). It doesn't need to be "wet" but it does need to stick together nicely.
  9. Form cauliflower dough into a ball with your hands and place on parchment paper over a pizza pan.
  10. You can either make 1 larger pizza or two smaller pizzas. It really depends on the size of your cauliflower and how much water you squeeze out. Spread the dough out to the edges of the pan. Make sure you don't press the crust too thin or it won't hold together once it's cooked. It should be about 1/2 cm thick.
  11. Bake for 20ish minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  12. Then spread your favorite pizza sauce over crust, add toppings of your choice and bake another 5-10 minutes. You can turn down the heat of the oven to 350 if you want to minimize the chances of burning your crust.

    What is your suggestion if I don’t have a microwave?

      You would need to steam the cauliflower before you process it. Let it cool after steaming it, before you process it. It might blow the lid during processing if it’s too warm. I’m not sure if you’d be able to squeeze water out of the cooled, processed cauliflower but I would try anyway…
