How to make cauliflower crust pizza:
Creating a cauliflower crust is really quite simple. Start by ricing the cauliflower in a food processor. Add cheese, garlic, egg and mix well. Divide the mixture into two and press into crust shapes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Each crust is only 150 calories.
Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Add marinara sauce, fresh spinach and ricotta cheese to the crust. Return to the oven and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Tips for keto cooking:
- Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes. Like cauliflower instead of perogies and radishes instead of potatoes.
- Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats. Sometimes its hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
- Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
- Find recipes that you love, like this Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole, Taco Bake and Hamburger Soup, and use them in your weekly rotation.
- Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools (aff links) like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.
