Ready In:
1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely chopped.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, cook cauliflower for five minutes or until tender. Using a juicer, squeeze out the moisture from the cauliflower a little bit at a time. Alternately, place cauliflower in a towel, and squeeze out excess water so it is completely dry.
  • In a bowl, mix cauliflower, salt, baking powder, oregano, eggs, and garlic, until well-combined.
  • NOTE: everyone but me seems to be able to use parchment paper without it sticking. In my experience, no matter what I do, it sticks like glue. Using a Silpat sheet works perfectly.
  • On a Silpat (or parchment-lined baking sheet), spread cauliflower dough out until it resembles a pizza (round or square). Make sure the crust is at least ½“ thick. Pinch the edges up to contain sauce to be added later. Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Top however you want and bake in a 450°F oven for 7 minutes or until cheese and toppings have baked.

    In your ingredients you mention 1/2 cup of flour... but in the directions I don't see where you use it?

    I believe the reason the parchment paper isn't working for you is because the oven is too hot. Parchment paper I believe can only deal with 400 degrees maybe 425.


I have two teenagers who keep things very busy around our house during the daytime. I also work long hours at Ford Motor Company, and I do want to spend time with my family every day. If I try to cook when my kids have their friends over, I'm certain to be interrupted. In other words, my available times for cooking are very limited. I don't want to give up on anything I love - my family, my job, my cooking - so I do most of my cooking after everyone has gone to bed. My wife is a teacher, so this can be very late at night during the summer. Sometimes, I don't get started with my prep work until 12:30 a.m. Am I crazy?? Maybe. I'm also constantly working on healthier ways to prepare food. I deconstruct every recipe I like, and try to make it with healthier ingredients. The big challenge is keeping the food tasty. I believe it's possible to enjoy what you eat and still be healthy. I lost 15 pounds in 6 months largely by preparing my own food (and exercising). If I didn't keep such loony hours, I'd call myself "The Healthy Gourmet".
