cauliflower pizza crust

  • Currently 4/5
from other recipes use eggs and cheese as the binder. this uses eggs and almond meal, which i'm guessing can be subbed with other flours?
2 c cauliflower crumbles (about one small cauliflower or half of a really big one)
1/4 onion chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 c almond meal
2 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1. preheat oven to 450°F.

2. combine cauliflower with onion and garlic in a food processor* and pulse until crumbly, being careful not to overmix (you don't want it to become a paste). then stir this mixture together with garlic, almond meal, and eggs, and a couple good cracks of salt and pepper. ff it seems too dry, you can add a little water; if it seems too wet, add more almond meal (I added between another 1/4 and 1/2 a cup).

*this will be considerably easier if you do it in batches. start with a cup of cauliflower and so on. otherwise, at least if your food processor is like mine, it takes a little longer.
3. form into pizza crusts and bake them alone for 20 minutes.
4. meanwhile, sautee any veggies you want to top them with (we did tomatoes and some red pepper). remove crusts, top as you like (we did a quick pesto of basil, Pecorino and olive oil; the sauteed veggies; more Pecorino on one tomatoes and onions and argula on the other). bake for another 10 minutes.
