Who Says You Can’t Eat Pizza On Keto?
When I began my keto diet, like most people, I stuck to the very simple eggs, meat and cheese meals. But the weekends would bring pizza cravings, and two years ago, almond flour was not a staple in my pantry. When I began doing research, I discovered the cauliflower pizza crust, and that’s what came to my rescue. It definitely didn’t taste like bread, but it was so amazing to see that it held together like a real pizza. With a good keto marinara sauce and some nice toppings, I didn’t miss the bread all that much.
One Cauliflower Pizza Crust. A World of Topping Possibilities.
As for the pizza toppings, I used what I had at the time, which was some salami and fresh basil. But there’s a world of possibilities there. I’d love to get some sausage meat, mushrooms, bacon, olives, garlic, bell peppers… I could go on and on. I will say this though: the cauliflower pizza does require a bit of work, so it’s not a bad idea to prepare your dough even a day in advance. You could also possibly freeze it, but I’ve never done that. It’s mainly the ricing, cooking and squeezing the water from the cauliflower that takes some time. Once that is done, it’s not a lot of work. Unfortunately there is no version of this that has worked for me without egg, so apologies to my ‘pure veg’ friends. Parchment paper is also your best friend in this recipe: grease it well with a bit of oil and the pizza will be easy to peel off it after it’s cooked.
