Main Ingredients


1 head cauliflower

2 eggs 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

1/4 cup grated parmesan

1 clove garlic

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 dash black pepper


1 cup pizza sauce

1 tbsp hot sauce

1/4 cup banana peppers, jarred

1/4 cup sliced yellow onion

1 handful turkey pepperoni

1 handful arugula

1 egg


1Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a round baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

2Break down cauliflower into 4 large pieces (or whatever will fit in your food processor). Pulse until cauliflower resembles rice-like texture. Transfer into microwave-safe bowl and heat for about three minutes. Wrap cauliflower in layers of paper towel and place in refrigerator to cool for at least 20 minutes. (This is to take out some of the moisture of the high water content cauliflower).

3While the cauliflower is cooling, whisk all other crust ingredients in one large bowl. Add cauliflower once cooled and form into crust on the parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.

4While the crust is baking, prep all toppings. You can use whichever toppings you like, but if following the exact recipe above, proceed below.

5Make your "spicy sauce" by combining 1 cup pizza sauce with 1 tbsp hot sauce. Set aside. Cut your 1/4 cup onion into thin slices and also set aside. Take banana peppers, arugula, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese out of package. Phew.

6Once the crust bakes for 20 minutes, let cool for about five minutes. Then, add the sauce, layers of cheese, and other toppings above. Bake for 12 minutes.

7Take the pizza out of the oven and crack a raw egg right in the center (yes, it's fine). Place pizza back in oven for another 12 minutes (or until egg is at desired cooking).

Additional Notes

The crust will be softer than you're used to due to the high water content of cauliflower. It's okay to omit the egg if that freaks you out, but we can't be friends. It pairs well with a date night and bottle of red, but brush your teeth because we're getting garlic-y.
