cauliflower mini pizzas healthy recipe

Cauliflower Pizza Crust (Mini Pizzas)

Recipes
Food

Made into easy, single-serving portions, these tasty cauliflower mini pizzas are healthy with a crispy crust. Whether you more of a marinara fan or feeling pesto for dinner, you've gotta try this low-carb (but high in taste) meal. 

Ingredients
  • ¼ teaspoon of pink salt
  • 3 tablespoons of vegan parmesan
  • Flax egg (1 tablespoon of flax meal and 4 tablespoons of water)
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped basil plus more for topping
  • Homemade basil pesto or jar of marinara sauce
  • Sliced red bell pepper
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Sliced red onion
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Olives
  • 1 head of cauliflower
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash and cut green leaves off of the cauliflower.
  • Place pieces of the cauliflower in the food processor and pulse until it becomes cauliflower rice.
  • Bring a pot to boil and add cauliflower rice and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Combine ingredients for your flax egg and set aside for five or so minutes to thicken.
  • Remove from heat and use a fine strainer to strain the rice and let cool.
  • Once cool, take a nut milk bag and strain all the water out of the rice (an important step to get it as dry as possible).
  • While the cauliflower rice is cooking, warm a skillet and add sliced onion, sliced bell pepper, and mushrooms. Sauté them enough to be cooked since they won’t be in the oven long.
  • Once the cauliflower is dry, place in a large mixing bowl and add in salt, vegan parmesan, flax egg, arrowroot flour, chopped basil, and dried oregano. Mix all ingredients into a dough.
  • Line parchment paper on a baking sheet and sprinkle gluten-free flour on the paper to avoid dough sticking.
  • Take a section of the dough and flatten it into a circle shape and line it on the baking tray, continue making little pizzas until you are out of dough.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 or so minutes and then flip the mini pizza crusts over and bake another 10 or so until firmer.
  • Add a light spread of marinara sauce, or homemade pesto, and veggies, vegan parmesan cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes, and rebake for another 10 minutes.
  • Take out and top with fresh basil. Enjoy!
