  • Summary

    Who knew pizza can be low-carb, healthy, and delicious too? This veggie-packed pizza swaps out the flour for a combo of cauliflower “rice” and ground almonds, making it nutritious and gluten-free. A generous sprinkling of mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce keep it classic and delicious.

    Ingredients

    • 1 small head of cauliflower (about 1 pound), coarsely chopped
    • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
    • 1 cup grated Parmesan (about 3 ounces)
    • 3/4 cup finely ground almond meal or almond flour
    • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella (about 5 ounces), divided
    • Vegetable oil (for brushing)
    • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
    • 1/4 cup basil leaves, torn
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
    • A pizza stone and peel, or 2 baking sheets
