How to Use Cauliflower in Pizza:

Cauliflower has as of late soar in prominence since it very well may be utilized to bring down the carb and calorie content of numerous generally high carb food sources, like pizza.

To transform cauliflower into a pizza outside layer, it’s slashed into florets and beat in a food processor until fine and grainy. Then, at that point, it’s steamed and depleted of any additional fluid and joined with fixings like eggs, cheddar, and flavors to make a sticky surface.

Ingredients for costco cauliflower pizza:

  • Cauliflower: You will need about 2.5 – 3 lbs.
  • Egg: Egg is part of “the glue” that holds cauliflower pizza dough together.
  • Cheese: As cheese melts during baking, it helps to bind small pieces of cauliflower into a crust. Cheese is crucial! So is the egg.
  • Spices: Simple dried herbs like oregano, basil or Italian mix plus salt and pepper add flavor to the crust. Cauliflower itself is pretty bland. Also you can add garlic powder.

How to make costco cauliflower pizza  Step By Step:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper or silicone mat.
  2. Rinse cauliflower, remove the outer leaves, separate into florets and chop into smaller pieces. Process in a food processor in 2 batches, until “rice” texture forms (skip if using store-bought “rice”).
  3. Transfer cauliflower rice on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 mins. Remove cooked cauliflower rice from the oven, transfer to a large bowl lined with a double/triple layered cheesecloth or linen towel, and let cool for 10-15 minutes or until safe to touch.
  4. Then squeeze the liquid out of the ball (cauliflower inside the cheesecloth) as hard as you can. Be patient and do this a few times until barely any liquid comes out.
  5. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl whisk the egg with dried herbs, salt and pepper for 10 seconds. Add cheese and squeezed cauliflower; mix very well with spatula until combined.
  6. Line same baking sheet with new parchment paper or silicone mat (just make sure to scrape off any bits of cauliflower) and spray with cooking spray. Transfer cauliflower pizza dough in the middle and flatten with your hands until thin pizza crust forms. 
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, carefully flip with spatula and bake for a few more minutes.
  8. Top cauliflower pizza base with your favourite toppings and bake again until cheese on top turns golden brown. Cut into 8 slices with a pizza cutter and enjoy!

costco cauliflower pizza  Notes:

  • Store:Refrigerate leftovers covered for up to 2 days.
  • Freeze: Bake, cool and wrap in plastic wrap. Or place in a resealable extra large Ziploc bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw completely before baking with toppings.
  • You will use oven 3 times: To cook “rice”, to bake crust and then to bake pizza with toppings. It’s easier to keep oven running.
  • Microwave: You can also cook “rice” in microwave for about 8 minutes instead of baking in the oven.

The best advice I can give – squeeze cooled cooked cauliflower very well.

If you don’t have a food processor, do this: Grate cauliflower on a box grater or buy cauliflower rice.

Toppings Ideas for costco cauliflower pizza:

  • Mediterranean: Tomato sauce, bell pepper, tomato, olives, red onion, feta cheese and parsley.
  • Cheese: My favourite, tastes so good on low carb!
  • Asian: shredded chicken breast, finely chopped broccoli, thinly sliced white onion, sriracha and mozzarella cheese.
  • Shrimp: Cook shrimp and make sauce and use mozzarella . So delicious!

costco cauliflower pizza  Storage:

Because a large 9-inch round pizza is harder to store, I recommend making two smaller crusts and stacking them on top of each other, with parchment paper in between. Even better, double this recipe and make 4 small crusts for the future. They’ll last for up to 3 months in the freezer. 

When you’re ready to make your pizza, just remove it from the freezer, and re-heat it in the oven. Bake it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes to thaw, then add your toppings and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cooked through.
