Finally got around to making Chris's pizza, cauliflower yo! Turkey bacon and low fat bacon, threw in the 2 tbsp of coconut flour. My Ricer is made in china and I have a wicked grip. I do not own a ricer anymore. Squeezing with my hands worked well enough. So delicious. I actually felt bad eating it. Like I was cheating.


Except you weren't and it was so yummy!

Seriously, it's good stuff! I love to eat this pizza

I don't know how you guys all get the crust to work. I can't seem to, it sticks to everything I cook it on. I tried this once on a pizza grate and it got stuck in all the little notches and wouldn't come out. I did it another time on a baking sheet and it stuck to that even with greasing it up. I guess the next step is a non-stick pan into the oven..

My wife and I make this at least once a week. Greatest idea ever. We also use the pizza pan with the little holes. Parchment paper would probably work great, but what I do is take it out when it is almost done baking (crust only), and use a thin spatula to kind of "cut" between the crust and the pan and free it up. I make sure it is completely free of the pan, then put it back for a few more minutes. Then, do toppings and bake again.

Alright, I thought that too.. Next Round coming soon. Thanks Chris!

I like your suggestions too Thrower. I'll see how it works with parchment paper.

Did it again and it turned out ever better: first, boiled it, then mashed it with an awesome wire metal masher. Strained it by putting it in between a lot of paper towels and ringing it out. Added two eggs, but I think 1 egg plus some egg whites would have been smart. Added garlic and herb seasoning with the oregano.

The only thing I wish I had done: added a bit of coconut flour and flipped the pizza after it cooked and before I covered it with toppings.

Have you guys thought about using a dehyrdator? I'm not expert, but I think you could at some stage in this process, put that crust in a dehydrator and have a much better product.
Also, even cheap dehydrators are flat and round. They are perfect for drying out a pizza crust. Just put some tinfoil under it, if the bottom is scored, and dehydrate until it is dry enough to match the right consistency.

I have been going wheat free for last 2 weeks, so this was absolutely amazing. Added mixed herbs and coconut flour to the crust which was delicious. Crust was a bit soft and fell apart easily, but just ate it with a fork. Was surprised at how filling only half the pizza was. I can easily demolish 12 inch pizzas from takeaways and still be hungry. Will be trying tuna pizza next I think, as well as experimenting with some other recipes on here. I have bought in some almond flour as well to try some different recipes. I was really happy with the pizza.

I think I have died and gone to pizza heaven!!! GOOD GOSH!!! Thank you for starting this thread and thanks to everyone for posting up pics. This looks and sounds better than regular pizza!!!

I actually just started buying bags of frozen cauliflower and making mashed potato out of them. I usually just mash them up and add grated parm cheese, black pepper, chives and a little bit of greek yougurt in place of sour cream. Really good!!

Can't wait to try the pizza out!!

Chicken, peppers, onion and sausage. Made the crust this time with a mix of broccoli and cauiliflower. Did the same thing, but boiled the broccoli with the cauliflower and mashed together with mixed herbs, small amount of coconut flour and a small amount of cheese to make 2 crusts. Have to say it worked fantastic. The mix of the 2 I found actually works better than the pizza crusts using just cauliflower. I wasn't sure if the broccoli flavour would work, but i think the combination actually makes it even better.

Many thanks to Chris or this recipe, and corstijeir for his advice!

Just made this tonight and turned out perfect first time. I had to use full fat cheese (low-fat isn't even available here, unless you go for the plastic processed stuff) and beef pepperoni (pork is illegal here (Kuwait) and of the turkey products I found, turkey was one of the last ingredients given!).

I also made my own pizza sauce; I couldn't find a single one here that didn't have added sugar or HFCS.

Pepperoni, mushroom and black olive. Yum!!!

Couldn't find coconut flour =[ think that would have made it PERFECT. Very good anyway.

This one is cauliflower, quinoa flour, almond flour, cheese crust. Turkey bacon and pineapple. Very good.

Good God. I just made my first pizza base and stacked the toppings. So delicious. Good recipe - added some coconut flour and wringed the cauliflower out as best I could. Is a tiny bit soft, but I just knife and forked it.
