Cauliflower Pizza Recipe!

Hi! Before I begin, follow our instagram @cactuscollective for updates and more information. Okay so so so I found this recipe from a Youtube video and I thought it would be fun to do a blog post on it. (Also this is the first food recipe post thing on this blog so I hope you like it)

Here's watcha need:
1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 egg
optional 1 tablespoon almond meal
any sauce, cheese or toppings you want for on the pizza!
To start, preheat yo oven to 450 degrees and place a baking sheet in the oven.

Next, place a large piece of parchment paper and spray it with nonstick cooking oil on a cutting board. (We'll be using that l8rrr)

Wash and throughly dry a small head of cauliflower. Then cut off the florets.

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 of cauliflower snow. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover. Microwave for 4 minutes.

 Dump cooked cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and let it cool.

Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, wrap it up in the dish towel and ring the heck out of it. Squeeze out as much water as possible. Now you'll have a chewy pizza like crust instead of a crumbly mess.

Place ringed out cauliflower into a bowl. Now add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and a dash of red pepper if you want. Add an egg and mix away.

I used my hands to mix but use whatever floats your boat ya feel. (You could use a whisk or electric mixer or something)

Once mixed together, form the dough into a crust on your oiled parchment paper. (Told ya)  Pat it down thoroughly, to make it nice and tightly formed together.

Slide the parchment paper onto the baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 8 - 11 minutes, until it starts to turn golden brown. Remove from oven.

Now you can chop up the vegetables you want to use! I used mushrooms, zucchinis, onions, tomatoes and basil. For sauce I used pesto (my fav) and classic marina sauce. And the cheeses I used where parmesan and mozzarella!

Once you're done topping your pizza, slide the parchment paper with the pizza back in the hot oven and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese is melted, bubbly, and slightly golden.

Wait for two minutes, and you're ready to eat your delicious and gluten free pizza! I put pesto, mozzarella, tomato, onion, mushroom and basil on mine. My sister put marina sauce, parmesan, tomato, onion, basil and zucchini on hers. I'd like to give a huge shout out to her for helping me photograph and cook! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and try out this recipe -Iris xoxo
