Cauliflower and Cassava Pizza Crust

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. Since going grain free I have not had Pizza. I got such a craving for it that I needed to create a crust recipe.  So I went to my kitchen and I experimented by making several different crusts. This one is too sticky, this one is to soft, this one is not tasty. But this recipe is just right. I like thin crust pizza. This crust is crispy and and soft of the inside and full of flavor. I use my Hickory BBQ sauce on this. This makes a 7′ crust. You can make individual pizzas or double it for a family pizza.

If you are dairy free just omit the cheese. Instead of adding cheese to toppings add spinach, vegetables and meats if you are a meat eater.

*Notes: The nutritional facts listed below the pictures are for the pizza crust only.

1/4 cup raw cauliflower rice

30 grams Irish Dubliner cheese

1/3 cup cassava flour

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon red pepper

1/8 teaspoon thyme

a pinch of smoked paprika

1/2 balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 425 F. Put the cauliflower into a food processor and blend until it sticks to the sides. Add cassava flour and seasoning blend at medium speed. When it starts to stick together. Remove from food processor and knead the dough. Add water and vinegar and knead until the texture resembles bread dough.  Place dough between to sheets of wax paper and press into a round shape of approximately 7 inch wide. Place pizza crust onto a baking stone. Place inside oven and bake for 12 minutes. Flip crust and bake 5 minutes. Place pizza toppings on top and bake another 7 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Cut and eat.

*My Notes: My toppings were Hickory BBQ sauce. cheese, ham, bell peppers, radish (yes it is really yummy on pizza), tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Here are photos of my pizza. The crust is crispy and soft on the inside.
