(Gluten Free, Low Carb Crust)
2 Cups Cauliflower Powder (from one
head of Cauliflower) see below
Cup finely shredded part-skim
Mozzarella Cheese (I use Pepper Jack)
¼ Cup grated Parmesan Cheese
¼ tsp dried thyme
2 large eggs
½ - 1 tsp Celtic Sea
Hot Pepper Flakes
Pizza Sauce (see
Pizza Sauce is thicker than marinara sauce.
Peppers, olives, onion, mushrooms, broccoli, anchovies, etc
You will need a food processor. Tear off about
three or four
florets at a time from the cauliflower and process that until it is powder.
Place that onto a large cookie sheet (with edges) or into a cake
pan. Process the rest of the cauliflower head the same way and add
that to your cookie sheet. Place
the powder into your oven and set at
about 160 and dry for three hours (either bake or drying setting). Every half hour or so, open the oven
and turn over the powder with a spoon, spread it around, etc, so
that everything gets evenly dried.
When dried and cooled, separate two cups of
cauliflower powder and pour those into a larger bowl. Add the soft
cheese. Many use mozzarella but I must be the only Sicilian on earth
who dislikes mozzarella cheese. It's just too bland for my tastes. I prefer Pepper
Jack. So add your soft cheese to the dried cauliflower powder, then
add the Parmesan cheese, salt, thyme, hot pepper flakes (optional)
and two good sized eggs. Stir it all up and then form a large ball.
Lightly grease up some baking parchment. I always
mix coconut oil with liquid lecithin. Place the ball in the middle
of the baking parchment and press it out. It will stretch out to 10
inches at about a quarter inch thick.
Put this in the oven at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.
When it's brown, it's done and you can add your toppings and sauce.
If you want to make your own sauce, we have a Nutribullet version
here: Marinara Sauce.
I never add the cheese till the pizza is fully
cooked. It will only take about 10 - 15 minutes at 350, so here's a
trick my Sicilian grandmother taught me. Shred the cheese for the
topping and add some finely grated Parmesan. Then crush up a clove
or two of garlic and add that to the cheese. Then add some spices:
basil, thyme, marjoram, oregano, powdered fennel. Mix it up all
together. When the pizza with sauce is through cooking, add the
cheese, turn the oven off, and place the pizza back into the already
warm oven to allow the cheese to melt.
