2 cups cauliflower powder
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons avocado oil (or olive oil)
1 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
Preheat oven to 400º F.
Microwave the cauliflower powder for 5 minutes then transfer it to a nut milk bag or clean
kitchen towel. Carefully squeeze out as much water as you can. Let it rest for a few minutes then squeeze out even more water.
You should have about a cup of this cauliflower paste. Add it to a large bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients until a soft dough forms.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and shape your pizza crust on it. Do not spread it thinner than ¼ inch, or it will tear.
Roast for 25-30 minutes until the cauliflower crust is golden in color and lightly browned on the edges.
Add your favorite toppings and pop it in the oven for another 5 minutes to make it extra crispy.
