Pizza can be so heavy and filling at times, yes, even the better-for-you gluten-free kind. So if you are craving a pizza and want a lighter option, this is your answer. Cauliflower pizza is actually quite easy to make and while it doesn’t quite taste like a slice off the NYC streets, it can fill that craving for pizza and tastes absolutely delicious.

PEACH, MOZZARELLA + BALSAMIC GLAZE CAULIFLOWER PIZZA

vegetarian, gluten-free 

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets

2 eggs

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/8 tsp salt

1 peach, pitted and sliced

8oz fresh mozzarella, sliced into thin rounds

1/4 cup basil, chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

balsamic glaze

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and process until “rice” texture. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove cauliflower from the oven and place into a cheesecloth. Squeeze out all excess liquid from the cauliflower. Once all liquid is extracted from the cauliflower, place in a large bowl and add eggs, Parmesan cheese, and salt. Mix to combine and work into a dough. Transfer dough to a pizza stone or parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten with your hands until a thin, round crust is formed. Bake for 15 minutes then remove from oven and brush pizza with olive oil and assemble with sliced mozzarella and peaches. Bake in the oven at 350°F for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
