Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 33 minutes
Total Time 43 minutes
Yield 6 slices

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium head cauliflower (4 cups small florets)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder OR 2 1/2 tbsp ground flax or chia
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup flour (I’ve used spelt, white, oat, almond, or sorghum)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano, optional
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment, and set aside. If using flax or chia, whisk with the water and refrigerate for at least a half hour. Steam cauliflower florets until fall-apart soft. Drain fully. Stir the flour with the oregano, garlic, salt, and baking powder (if using). Preheat oven to 450 F. Once cauliflower cools a little, place it in a clean dish towel or cheesecloth over a sink or bowl, and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. At least 2/3 cup water should come out – You want it as dry as possible. Place the squeezed-out cauliflower into a bowl and add the 1/4 cup water (or the flax mixture). Mash and stir well. Stir in the flour mixture. Form into a ball. Place on the baking sheet. Pat into a circle, then use another sheet of parchment on top (and a rolling pin, if desired) to spread the circle to about 1/4 inch thick. Take off the top sheet of parchment. Bake 25 minutes, or until lightly browned with crispy edges. Add toppings of choice. Bake an additional 8 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
