Ingredients

For the crust:
1 medium head cauliflower (about 4 cups florets)
1 egg
¾ cup Parmesan cheese
¾ cup almond flour
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste

For the pizza:
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup shredded mozzarella
½ medium red onion, thinly sliced (about 1/3 cup)
½ cup frozen Wild Blueberries, thawed, drained
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
½ cup arugula

Optional: Drizzle of olive oil or balsamic reduction

Preparation

For the crust:

  1. Place pizza stone or baking sheet on middle rack of oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.
  2. Working in batches as needed, pulse cauliflower in a food processor until rice-like consistency.
  3. In a large bowl, mix cauliflower, egg, parmesan cheese, almond flour and Italian seasoning until mixture holds together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Line pizza peel or second baking sheet with parchment paper. Press cauliflower mixture into a 10-inch circle on the parchment. Slide parchment onto pizza stone or baking sheet.
  5. Bake cauliflower crust for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to touch.

For the pizza:

  1. Remove crust from oven. Brush with olive oil. Add mozzarella, red onion, Wild Blueberries and goat cheese.
  2. Slide pizza back onto stone or baking sheet and bake for another 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown.
  3. Top with arugula and drizzle with olive oil or balsamic reduction as desired.
