Seriously… this is the BEST low carb pizza recipe! If I close my eyes while eating it, it’s just like a mouthful of NYC-style pizza– the stuff that I grew up eating! And it’s all wrapped up in a great, big, delicious THM S! Mmhmmm!
I discovered this during a season when I was cooking everything from scratch and I had just acquired a basil plant, so there’s lots of work involved in this but totally worth it. I’m working on streamlining the process.
This recipe actually got the hubby’s stamp of approval, which does not come lightly. Also, this elusive stamp has not been given to any other on-plan pizza, and we have tried quite a few! Fathead, chicken crust, sprouted whole wheat, almond flour, and so on and so forth…
This one wins!!
We hope that your family enjoys it as much as ours does, but be warned– you might have to make twice as much as you think you need because it’s going to get devoured. It’s that good!
The Best Low Carb Pizza Crust
16 ounces frozen cauliflower, defrosted
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp coconut flour
3 oz fresh mozzarella, melted in microwave for 30 seconds and water drained off
Pulse cauliflower in food processor until it’s in rice-sized pieces. Fill a pot with 1 inch of water, bring to a boil, and add cauliflower. Cook 4-5 minutes. Line a colander with a tea towel, pour cooked cauliflower into it. Let drain while you place the rest of ingredients in a large bowl. Use tea towel to wring out excessive water from cauliflower, then add it to the bowl. Mix thoroughly. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper, then press crust into pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
While pizza’s cooking, make bacon for topping and tomato sauce.
Place 1-2 strips bacon in a foil-lined pan and bake with pizza crust in the oven for 15-20 minutes until crisp. (you don’t have to use foil but it makes clean-up super easy!)
Best Pizza Sauce EVER:
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning, garlic, and onion
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2-3 dashes mineral salt
1/4 tsp gluccie
Add all ingredients food processor (no need to wash from the cauliflower) and blend thoroughly, then add to your cauliflower pot, Mix well and simmer over low heat while pizza cooks.
To make pizza:
Top crust with small amount of sauce (freeze the rest for your next pizza night), cheese, bacon, other desired toppings, and fresh basil. Bake 5-10 minutes until cheese melts, then broil on high for 2-3 minutes until cheese bubbles.
Enjoy! This made a pizza that served the two of us and our toddler, and we could even pick it up with our hands and eat it! Delish!
