Yum! Just a note, I ALWAYS make my own sauce and it’s so easy- throw in some olive oil, sautée garlic, add chopped tomatos (5 or 6 is enough for our two pizzas) and spices….pepper, oregano, garlic. Let it cook down a bit then blend it to make it smooth (or leave or chunky if you want). If you don’t have fesh tomatos, throw in a can if no salt tomatos. Always delicious.

That sounds really good, I haven’t seen that recipe before but I have made the one with cauliflower and turned out great.  I fed it to my Fiance and he actually thought it was breadsticks, so that was a plus.  I’m going low carb again for the new year to get rid some of this extra weight, so I am gonna try this one.  Thanks for posting!

Hmmm… I’ve tried a few variations of the cauliflower crust. The last time was the best I’d ever done. Used grated cauliflower, parmesan, egg and some seasonings. It had you microwave the cauliflower after you grate it and then squeeze as much water out as possible (the better you do at this step the better it turns out). After that you mix in the cheese and seasoning and spread it out on parchment and bake a little bit before adding sauce and toppings. 

Wedding diet is about to go in full force and I might need to do this again before too long.

TXbride2015:  that’s exactly how I’ve always made it! I totally agree about how well you do that step determines how well the crust turns out. I’ve also found that flipping the crust half way through baking makes it better too! You just have to be super careful about it so it doesn’t break! I put another cookie sheet with parchment paper right on top of the crust and the flip the whole thing over.

I haven’t made it in awhile but I love it. I’ve also made cauliflower fried “rice” and cauliflower mash “potatoes”

ChicagoSLK:  crazy that you posted this – I was just looking at those recipes last night!!

I LOVE pizza, but have basically cut it out of my diet – which makes me so, so sad : (

I read that the crust isn’t really “crust-like”… Hiw would you describe it? How many servings did you feel it made in the 9×13?
