DIRECTIONS

  • Place a block of tofu in a bowl and top with a heavy weight to drain water as much as possible.
  • Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and process until a rice-like texture is achieved.
  • Fill a medium pan with an inch of water and bring to a boil. Add the processed cauliflower and cook about 4 – 5 minutes. Drain water and cool.
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF degrees.
  • Place the cooled cauliflower in a nut milk bag or wrap with cheesecloth and squeeze excess water out as much as possible.
  • In a bowl, place drained tofu and use your hands to mash it well.
  • Add cauliflower, beaten egg, herb, and salt and mix well.
  • Press the dough out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The thickness of the dough should be around 1/2 inch.
  • Bake for about 30 – 40 minutes. The crust should be firm and slightly brown.
  • Remove the crust from oven. Top with pizza sauce, toppings and cheese.
  • Bake for another 10 – 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
  • Infuse love and serve!
