If you are looking to experiment with you pizza, this recipe is for you! Did we mention it is healthy and gluten-free? Oh…and it tastes good too! Happy Friday Night Pizza!

For the Crust
– 1 large head of cauliflower or two small heads, coarsely chopped (creates about 4 cups of cauliflower “rice”)
– 3 eggs
– 1- 1 ½ cups almond meal
– ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
– 1 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon onion powder
Sea salt and cracked black pepper

 For the Toppings
– 1 cup ricotta cheese
– 2 cups mozzarella
– 1 large yellow onion, peeled and chopped
– 2 cups Brussels sprouts, shredded
– 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
– 1 small package mushrooms
Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Place chopped cauliflower in food processor, sprinkle with salt and pepper and pulse until it resembles a rice consistency. Transfer cauliflower rice to a large bowl and add almond meal, eggs, mozzarella garlic powder and onion powder. Using your hands, mix all ingredients together until it begins to stick and can be shaped into two balls.

If the cauliflower balls are too wet, squeeze the excess liquid out and add a little bit more almond meal. The texture will never be dry like conventional flour dough but you don’t want it to be dripping wet either. A little moisture is fine and will not prevent the crust from firming up in the oven.

Line a two baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer the cauliflower balls onto the center of the paper and using your hands, shape into a pizza crust of about 1/3 inch thickness. Bake the cauliflower pizza crust in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the sides are beginning to brown. Remove from oven.

Once the pizzas are done, spread one pizza with ricotta and the other with mozzarella. Spread the Brussels sprouts, onions and mushrooms evenly over the top of the pizza. Drizzle with balsamic.
