♥ How to make the crispiest keto pizza crust?

The keto crust is super easy to make. You will need only four ingredients. Cauliflower rice (grated cauliflower), mozzarella cheese, cheddar 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. Now the most important step to having a crispy cauliflower pizza crust. First, you steam the cauliflower rice until tender, but not mushy, THEN, using a cheesecloth or a thin dishtowel squeeze out as much liquid as you can. This is the secret to having a crispy keto pizza crust. Now you mix the pizza ingredients with the cauliflower and spread over a pizza pan—Bake for 20 minutes. The crust is ready to be topped with your favourite toppings. Then pop it back in the oven and finish baking until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Done! Ready to eat, enjoy!

Ingredients

  • PIZZA CRUST
  • 4 cups * cauliflower rice
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • TOPPING
  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • ½ medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup thinly sliced mushrooms
  • Handful of baby spinach
  • ¼ cup sliced black olives
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh rosemary or ¼ tsp. GF dried rosemary
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • *Note: to make cauliflower rice roughly grate cauliflower or use a food processor to process cauliflower florets until they resemble rice
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F and line a 14-inch pizza pan with parchment paper
  • Steam cauliflower rice for about 6 minutes until tender
  • This next step is VERY IMPORTANT! Wrap up steamed cauliflower in a thin dishtowel or cheesecloth and squeeze out excess liquid
  • In a medium bowl mix together cooked cauliflower rice, cheese, and egg. I didn't add salt because the cheese has salt already. Spread the mixture onto prepared pizza pan about 1/3-inch thick and lightly press down, leaving the edges slightly thicker
  • Bake for 20 minutes
  • While the pizza crust is baking, prepare the topping. Using a medium size bowl combine all the topping ingredients except the mozzarella cheese
  • Evenly spread the topping over the cooked pizza crust and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. If you prefer the pizza to be extra cheesy add extra mozzarella cheese Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbling
  • * Tip: double the recipe and make 2 pizza crusts. Freeze one in foil for future use. All you do is add your favourite toppings and bake at 400 F until the cheese is bubbling about 15 minutes
