Cauliflower Pizza Crust Bites are easy to make and delicious to eat. A crispy, sturdy, cheese & cauliflower packed crust layered high with your favorite pizza toppings!
I’m not a fan of eliminating your favorite foods in the name of losing weight, but I am a fan of finding healthier alternatives to enjoy your favorite foods more frequently! I’ve been eating cauliflower pizza crust for many years now, but these bite size pizzas are by far my favorite way to eat them. I think the biggest problem with cauliflower crust is that it oftentimes is soggy and nobody wants a soggy crust. These bite size pizzas come out perfectly crisp, every single time!
I want to be very clear with you, cauliflower pizza crust DOES NOT taste like a traditional pizza crust. If somebody tries to tell you that, run, they are a liar. However, cauliflower is basically tasteless, so your pizza will take on the flavors from the toppings, whatever those might be.
I think this one depends on what your definition of “better” is. For me, I can’t eat traditional pizza crust because of food intolerances, so this crust is a great alternative for me (and many others with grain and/or gluten intolerances), so that I can still enjoy the delicious flavors of pizza that the toppings deliver. Most pizza crusts aren’t packed full of veggies either, so this crust has that going for it too!
The most important factor to making your cauliflower crust crispy, is the pan that you use. Make sure you are using a pizza pan with a perforated surface, like THIS one.
Following direction on riced cauliflower, steam bag & then wring out all excess moisture by placing cauliflower in a clean kitchen towel.
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, mozzarella, salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and arrowroot flour. Add in cauliflower and mix well.
Line a perforated pizza pan with parchment paper and scoop cauliflower mixture, using a tbsp, onto paper. Using hands, flatten each tbsp of mixture into a disc.
Bake pizza bites at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, removing after 10 minutes to flatten each pizza crust down with the back of a spatula.
Remove from oven and top pizzas with 1 tsp of marinara, your favorite toppings and 1 tsp of parmesan/mozzarella cheese blend.
Bake for 5 minutes more till cheese is melted.
Remove and serve immediately.
