You will find the answers in this “What are Ketones and How Does Ketosis Work in Your Body” blog.
This Cauliflower crust may surprise you!
A crust made with cauliflower when made correctly, will be deliciously crispy, cheesy and is super low in carbs.
However, if you made a cauliflower pizza crust in the past and found it too soggy, then the recipe may have been missing something. I will talk about it shortly!
4 ingredient keto pizza crust
I promise you this 4 ingredient low-carb cauliflower pizza crust will be crispy and delicious, just the way you like it.
Total net carbs per slice are about 2 grams, depending on the toppings you add.
How to make the crispiest keto pizza crust?
The keto crust is super easy to make. You will need only 4 ingredients. Cauliflower rice (grated cauliflower), mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and an egg. That is it! You don’t have to add salt because the cheese is salty already.
Sometimes I add a pinch of garlic powder or oregano for extra flavour.
The secret to making crispy cauliflower pizza crust!
We all love crispy pizza crust! And yes, low-carb cauliflower pizza crust can be just as crispy.
Steam the cauliflower rice until tender but not mushy.
Using a cheesecloth or a thin dish towel, squeeze out as much liquid as you can. This is the secret to having a crispy cauliflower pizza crust.
Mix the steamed cauliflower rice with mozzarella, parmesan and egg to create a dough. Spread the dough over a pizza pan and par-bake for 20 minutes. That is all there is to making a low-carb cauliflower pizza crust.
Toppings are important
The crust is ready to be topped with your favourite toppings. But, as with most pizzas, don’t overload the crust with toppings.
I like to use no more than 4 toppings plus the cheese on this keto pizza crust. Otherwise, you can’t taste the individual flavours and textures of the delicious toppings.
Return the pizza to the oven and finish baking until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Done, the crispy crust keto pizza is ready!
