Cauliflower Crust Ham Pizza

So I had been trying to find a good recipe for pizza for a while now. I tried one recipe but it ended up tasting like pizza quiche. And I hate quiche. So that one wasn’t made again. Then I discovered this recipe and my hopes were restored.

I made it for dinner one night and it was delicious! It tasted just like real pizza and the nutritional stats were impressive. The entire family liked it too. This pizza will definitely be made again. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower
3 cups of cheese (I used mozzarella)
1 cup of cubed ham
1/2 cup pasta sauce
1 teaspoon garlic power
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.

Make the cauliflower rice. The place the cauliflower rice on a dish towel and squeeze the water out of it. No kidding. There is a ton of moisture in cauliflower that you never knew about. Squeeze it until there’s no dampness left!

Mix the cauliflower rice with the spices, 1/3 cup of the cheese and the two eggs. Stir well until it is completely mixed. Place it onto a pan or pizza stone and form it into a crust. I’m not really good at making things circular, so mine was a little lopsided. But it was still good. I prefer a thicker crust, but make it at any consistency you like.

Put the crust in the oven and bake it for 15-20 minutes. While the crust is baking, cook the ham cubes on the stove top. When the crust is done it should be browned on top. Remove from oven and add the sauce, ham and cheese. Place it back in the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and gooey.

Note: if you use other veggies or toppings, make sure to cook them before placing them on the pizza.

Remove pizza from oven and cut into slices. Enjoy!
