Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 2 people

Ingredients

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese (and more for topping!)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tbsp basil
  • 1/4 tbsp oregano
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce
  • 10 ish pepperoni (optional, choose whatever toppings you'd like)

For the Ranch:

  • 2 tbsps mayonnaise
  • 1-2 splashes milk
  • any spice you have! (i used salt, pepper, oregano, basil, thyme and cayenne!)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Chop your head of cauliflower into florets. Place them into a food processor. Pulse a few times until you get a rice/snow texture. Microwave this for 4-5 minutes, or until soft. Let this cool. 

  2. Spread your cauliflower mixture onto a thin, clean dish towel. Twist it up and wring it out! Seriously, press, squeeze, twist until you get all of the excess moisture out! 

  3. Transfer to a bowl. Add 3/4 cup of cheese, 2 cloves minced garlic, egg, salt, basil and oregano. Combine well. 

  4. Place parchment paper or silicon sheet onto a baking sheet. Move the dough onto the baking sheet. Flatten into the shape you want your pizza to be in. I flattened mine until it was very thin, which provided a crispier crust.

  5. Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove and add sauce and toppings. Place back in the oven for an additional 8-10 minutes. Broil for 1-2 minutes for extra crispiness! (Be sure to keep an eye on it though, broiling is a dangerous game!) 

For the Ranch:

  1. Mix your mayonnaise and milk together until it forms the consistency you like. If you need it thinner, add more milk. If you like it thicker, add a bit more mayonnaise. Add any spices you want until it tastes yummy! I added salt, pepper, oregano, basil, thyme and cayenne. This recipe is extremely customizable. You just have to get the base right with the mayo/milk recipe!
