Gluten-free pizza crust made from cauliflower. This is the BEST cauliflower pizza crust!
Place a pizza stone in the oven (a baking sheet will work if you don't have a pizza stone). Preheat oven to 450°F. On a cutting board, place a large piece of parchment paper and put a little oil on it.
Cut the florets off the cauliflower, and put into a food processor. Pulse in food processor for about 30 seconds, until you get powdery snow like cauliflower. You should end up with 2 to 3 cups cauliflower "snow." Steam the cauliflower on the stove for 4 minutes. Place the cooked cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and allow to cool.
Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, wrap it up in the dish towel (or cheese cloth) and ring out all of the water/moisture. You want to squeeze out as much water as possible. This will ensure you get a chewy pizza like crust instead of a crumbly mess.
Place the cauliflower in a medium mixing bowl and add the Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt, dried basil (crush up the leaves even more between your fingers before adding), dried oregano (crush up the leaves even more between your fingers before adding), garlic powder, and a dash of crushed red pepper if you want. I also added a little almond meal because my cauliflower yielded closer to 2 cups of cauli-snow; this is optional and I would not add the almond meal if you have closer to 3 cups of cauli-snow. Now add the egg and mix away. Hands tend to work best.
Once mixed together, use your hands to form the dough into a crust on the parchment paper. Pat it down thoroughly - you want it nice and tightly formed together. Don’t make it too thick or thin.
Using a cutting board, slide the parchment paper onto your hot pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 8-11 minutes, until it starts to turn golden brown. Remove from oven.
*Add your favorite sauce, cheese, toppings, etc and bake another 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted and golden brown.
