Keto Gluten free Cauliflower pizza crust recipe

Keto Gluten free Cauliflower pizza crust recipe

I have finally found a keto gluten free cauliflower pizza crust recipe which I have partially modified. Pizza is like a comfort food. The pizza crust is made with wheat, which is full of gluten and carbohydrates. This is particularly annoying when you go out for pizza night with a group of friends. In fact, very few restaurants even offer a gluten-free pizza option. For those on a gluten free diet, pizza is something we really miss.

Gluten is a binding agent. Without wheat, it is generally difficult to bake a pizza crust that is firm, easy to pick up, and eat with your fingers. This is the reason why pizza is almost always made with wheat or some kind of flour. In order to keep this recipe keto and gluten free, there is no flour used. Hurray!

This cauliflower pizza crust recipe depends on two main ingredients to do the binding work. Eggs bind ingredients together giving them strength and stability. Mozarella is by nature a stringy cheese.

String cheese is just mozzarella cheese that has been heated to 140 c degrees. At this temperature the cheese becomes very stretchy and the milk proteins move around and line up together in a row. It’s this alignment that makes string cheese so stringy! And that’s all there is to it. No strange processing. No toxic chemicals. Just the realigning of milk proteins.

Huffpost (Note: 140 celsius equals 284 Fahrenheit

I highly recommend this keto gluten free cauliflower pizza crust recipe to all my gluten free friends. You will not be disappointed. Try it and you will certainly fall in love with it!

You can make this recipe in a big batch and freeze them in an airtight container for future use. Do all the work in one go, and make the next pizza meal quick and easy.

Notes

For a crisp and dry pizza crust, be sure to squeeze dry the steamed cauliflower.  I suggest that you steam the cauliflower florets well in advance, and allow it time to cool.  
Drain the steamed cauliflower florets on a dry towel, or best yet, wrap them with a cheese cloth and squeeze dry.
