Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • Dash garlic powder and thyme

Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Brussels Sprouts

  • 1/2 cup shredded brussels sprouts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Toppings

  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Pitted kalamata olives
  • Sun-dried tomatoes

Instructions

For the Crust

  1. Place chopped cauliflower into a food processor and process until pieces resemble small grains of rice. (It should make about 2 1/2 cups of “rice”.) Put cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and cover. Cook for 5 minutes and allow to cool slightly on the counter. Pour cauliflower onto a cheese cloth and squeeze excess moisture out. Place back in bowl and stir in eggs, coconut flour, and seasonings.

For the Sauce

  1. In a small saucepan, combine all of the sauce ingredients and stir. Cook over medium heat until warm. Reserve 1 cup of sauce for the pizza. Refrigerate the leftover for dipping or freeze it so you have some on hand for future pizza making!

For the Brussels Sprouts

  1. In a medium pan, heat olive oil. Toss in Brussels sprouts and garlic. Cook over medium heat until Brussels sprouts begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Stir in balsamic vinegar and cook another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Assemble Pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease cast iron skillet with cooking spray. Press cauliflower crust into the bottom of the pan using your hands to spread it out evenly. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove crust from oven and top with sauce, cheese, and other toppings.
  3. Bake pizza another 10 minutes or until cheese begins to melt.
  4. Place under broiler for another 3 minutes until cheese is completely melted and crust begins to brown.
