How to Make Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza
The key to making this delicious pizza is all in the crust and a selection of fresh vegetables. Making a cauliflower pizza can be a bit labor-intensive. Still, with a little bit of TLC, you will be on your way to making a beautiful golden crust to load up with all flavor and no fear of gluten flare-ups.
Recommendations to make a great crust:
- Remove as much moisture from the cauliflower as possible
- Process your cauliflower into a fine couscous like consistency
- Don’t forget to add ground flaxseed to bine and make a crumble-like dough.
If you are looking to save a little extra-time in the kitchen, you can always purchase pre-riced cauliflower, fresh or frozen.
