Mini Cauliflower Pizza Crusts  

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough

In case you haven’t jumped aboard the Pinterest train yet (in which case, hello, what are you waiting for? Endless streams of crafts, recipes and pictures of cute puppies sleeping await!), cauliflower pizza crust is all the rage.

What is it, exactly, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you.

It’s awesome. It’s tasty. It’s the low-carb alternative to regular pizza crust. And these Mini Cauliflower Pizzas are the perfect way to try them.

So let’s get on it, shall we?

Head of cauliflower

First, we start with a gigantic head o’ cauliflower (duh).

Shredded cauliflower

Shred that head into crumbles and reserve about four cups. You can save the rest in the fridge or freezer for when the cauliflower pizza crust craving strikes again – and trust me, it will.

Cauliflower mixed with other ingredients

Cook the cauliflower in the microwave, then let it cool and mix it with eggs, garlic powder, Italian seasonings and shredded mozzarella cheese. If you’re not a fan of mozzarella, feel free to use a different kind of shredded cheese (Cheddar? Manchego? Swiss? Go crazy!).

Pizza crusts on baking sheet

Divide the mixture into 12 pieces, and pat each piece into a small round on a lightly greased baking sheet (or ungreased pizza stone, though I found it more difficult to get those dang pizzas off the stone after baking. They still tasted great, though).

Bake the crusts for 15 minutes or so before topping with ingredients

Bake the crusts for 15 minutes or so until they’re nice and golden brown. They might char on the edges, but that’s OK. It’s a small price to pay to get the underside of the crust perfectly baked through and golden.

Put toppings on each pizza

Heat the broiler and top each pizza with your favorite toppings. I went the classic margherita pizza route with pizza sauce, fresh basil leaves, mozzarella cheese and tomato slices, but pretty much any toppings will go well with these guys.

Broil the pizzas until the cheese is melted and the toppings are warm, about 5 minutes.

Mini Cauliflower Crust Pizzas

Let the pizzas rest a bit (they’ve been through a lot!), then serve. Sure, they don’t taste just like real pizza crust, but they don’t taste anything like cauliflower, either. You know what they taste like? AWESOME. So dig in!
