LoveZas!

Pizzas for the whole family on Valentine’s Day!

LoveZas

Crust:
4 cups (approximately 1 head) riced cauliflower (see below)
2 large eggs
1.5 teaspoons sea salt
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1.5 tablespoons Italian seasoning

Toppings: Go wild!  This is where your preferences come into play.

IN THE PICTURE:
A.  marinara sauce, basil and yellow peppers
B.  pesto and Italian sausage
C.  marinara sauce, bacon and onion
D.  pesto and mushrooms
E.  marinara sauce, black olive and artichoke hearts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Rice your cauliflower.  If you don’t know how to do this, this YouTube video is the best source I have found.  Transfer to a strainer. Take several paper towels and smoosh out the liquid from the cauliflower.

Mix the cauliflower along with the remaining crust ingredients. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, form 8 crusts (approximately 1/4 cup per crust).  Bake for 30 minutes.

Add desired toppings.  Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool and “harden” for 10 minutes.

Drizzle with a little olive oil, if desired.

Enjoy!

  1. Omg…..I am so happy that you have this recipe, cuz I thought we were going to have to give the crust up. Before I was using veggie cheese and we have given that up…..SO I am doing the happy dance…Thanks to YOU! :)

  2. The recipe says 8 crusts. Does this mean your making 8 mini pizzas?

    Or can you put all together for 1?

    • I made 8 minis…I suppose you could make one large crust; however, with eliminating gluten in these recipes, crusts and breads are not "glued" together in the traditional sense. With making minis, you at least get the crispness on the edges which helps hold it all together.

  5. I am new to all of this. Is there a difference between almond meal and alomond flour? Thank you.

    • Hey Carol and welcome!! Not really, Almond meal is generally less fine than flour…but you can create any kind of "nut" flour/meal in your food processor. When I coat chicken before baking for a "fried chicken" feeling, I blend my almond less so there is more of a chunky "breading". Also, with most nuts, just continue to blend and you will create a nut butter from the natural oils.
