THE BEST Paleo Cauliflower Pizza Crust


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup ground chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 cups processed cauliflower (~1/2 a large head)
  • 1/4 large onion (finely diced)
  • 1 Tbsp ghee
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp dried basil
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 cup almond flour

Instructions

  1. Mix ground chia and water together well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400F.
  3. In a large frying pan saute onions in ghee over medium heat. Once translucent add cauliflower and cook until soft and light brown (like me! haha).
  4. Allow to cool enough to handle, pour cauliflower and onion into a dish towel, and twist to squeeze excess fluid out (see photo above).
  5. Transfer cauliflower to a mixing bowl, add remaining dry ingredients and mix well, then add the chia and mix by hand. This will actually be dough-like in consistency.
  6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, then flatten out the dough into your desired shape (I prefer square, myself). Press it out until it’s about 1/4″, and form a lip around the edges.
  7. Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes until browned and crispy. The edges should be crunchy. It’s gonna smell delicious, so be prepared for neighbors knocking on your door….

Notes

This should be large enough to feed 3 people, but if you think about people’s pizza-eating habits with regard to quantity, 2 might be more realistic (especially with how good the pizza pictured at the top of the page was!)
