Oh dear, oh dear…June 6th.
The year after we got married, June 6th fell on a Saturday and it seemed to be the hottest day to get married. And by hot, I mean not only hot as in the temperature, but hot as in, ‘the coolest’. 😉
It’s also the anniversary of D-Day. My husband is obsessed with World War II, so I’m reminded of this day every year. Thanks, dear!
Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff about June 6th…
I’ve seen cauliflower crusted pizza numerous times on pinterest, and was always skeptical about it. But, I’m so glad I finally tried it!
It was amazingly easy to whip up…
…much better than having to wait for hours for your dough to rise. It was just a quick trip in the Blendtec, spread on the baking sheet, top with your toppings, pop it in the oven, and eat it! 😀
And since pizza nights are often followed by ice cream, I didn’t feel bad to melt in some indulgences after dinner, having had an all vegetable pizza!
My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful flavors of this pizza.
So, moral of the story. You can trust recipes on pinterest and you should give this pizza a try!
adapted from Deliciously Organic
- 5-6 cups chopped fresh cauliflower
- 2 cups part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup garbanzo bean flour
- 3 tablespoons Italian seasoning
- 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- Combine all of your ingredients in the Blendtec (or food processor) and blend until puréed.
- Dividing the dough into fourths, spread out two 8″ diameter circles with the dough on each of your two baking sheets that have been lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper. You will have four mini pizzas.
- Bake for 15 minutes until light brown.
- Top with toppings and bake for another 5-10 minutes. I put two spoon fulls of marinara sauce on top, then topped with sliced tomatoes, basil leaves, and fresh mozzarella.
Servings: 4 personal pan (6-8″) pizzas
I love the sound of this!! So simple and so fabulous.
Great alternative, especially for after-work dinner!
could you use regular flour instead of the garbanzo bean flour?
I’m not sure. I’ve seen some recipes for cauliflower crust that don’t have any sort of flour in it. Search around and I bet you’ll find one! Happy Baking!
I tried it with the same amount of regular flour and it worked fine. I loved this crust. Next time I think I will try different spices and a different topping. Maybe curry?
Ooo, good call with the curry! Glad you enjoyed the pizza Aileen!
this looks delicious and can definitely be altered for various diets – love it!
Gotta try this pizza ~ I LOVE cauliflower crust 🙂
What a great idea! I love when Pintrest inspires wonderful recipes. This looks amazing!
I have been wanting to try cauliflower pizze for a while! Great idea to add the chickpea flour.
I have been wanting to try cauliflower pizza for a while and now i am certainly going to. btw do you think I can substitute chickpea flour with all purpose or whole wheat?
I’ve seen this a few times too and I’ll admit, I’m a major skeptic! I’ll probably cave and try it eventually but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to pull it over on my veggie-hating husband 🙂 Your pizzas look so delicious, I wish I had one for lunch!
I’ve been wanting to try this too. Adding to my list for next week!
This looks amazing. I think I might try this. The bf doesn’t like cauliflower but I think I’m going to have him try it anyway.
Maybe try Burrata cheese instead? Thoughts?
Can you hold the dough in the fridge? Bottom line – what to do with “leftovers” or should I just reduce the recipe?
I have not had luck with Cauliflower pizza, but I think I will have to try it with the chickpea flour. Maybe that will work out better for me.
I’m so glad you tried this. I’ve been hearing about it and wondered how it was. Looks great!
I haven’t tried this version but another and it wasn’t crunchy enough, even on a stone. Yours looks wonderful!
And D-day! I told my husband, the German, yesterday that we had to celebrate “the beginning of the end” for… yeah, you know. It’s something that you’re obviously not supposed to talk about here, so he’s on the receiving end of my all WWII anger and disgust. Poor guy.
I love cauliflower pizza and was pleasantly surprised when I tried it for the first time as well. It’s so easy too!
i seriously want to make this crust so bad, i’m hearing such great things about cauliflower crust!!
Seriously, talk about a guilt-free pizza! I cannot wait to try this one out (I need to get a blender or food processor first). But anything with the word pizza in it deserves a try… well maybe thats not totally true, but this one sure does! 🙂
Where do I find garbanzo bean flour?
I buy it at my local organic store, but you can also buy it on amazon. 🙂
