Flourless Pizza

Flourless Pizza

This guilt free flourless pizza is AMAZING!  My friends were skeptical, but ended up loving it and wanting more.  What is the secret? Check out the recipe below to find out!

Servings: 3

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of frozen cauliflower florets
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 cups of mozzarella cheese
  • Pizza sauce (amount up to you)
  • Any toppings you wish! (I used mushrooms, cheese, and green pepper)

Steps:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place your cauliflower into a food processor or blender & blend until the cauliflower is shredded into small pieces (it is okay if there are a few big chunks).
3. Pour your cauliflower base into a big microwavable bowl & microwave for 8 minutes.
4. Mix in an egg and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese into the cauliflower. Once these ingredients are mixed together, mash with a fork until you arrive at a smooth texture.
5. Spray your pizza pan with non-stick spray and lay the cauliflower base onto the pan. Shape into a circle using your hands or a fork.
6. Place your “dough” into the oven for 10-15 minutes.
7. Remove your “dough” and add your pizza sauce and chopped ingredients.
8. Place the pizza back into the oven for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!
