1/2 medium head of cauliflower (4 cups of small cauliflower florets)
3 tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 cup of water
3/4 cups of white rice flour
1/2 cup of almond flour

1 tsp of salt

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Ingredients:
Preheat your oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside for later.
Chop your cauliflower into small pieces or florets to get it ready for the crust. Cook your cauliflower in boiling water for about 15 minutes until fall-apart soft and then drain in a strainer.
Once your cauliflower has cooled a little, place in a clean dish towel or cheese cloth and squeeze as much moisture as you can from the florets. You can do this over a bowl or the sink. Ideally you want your cauliflower to release about 2/3 cups of water. At that point your cauliflower should be dry and ready to be used in the crust.
Place your cauliflower into a bowl and add your flour, flax seed, salt and dried herbs. Add 1/4 cup of water into the bowl and begin to incorporate all ingredients together by stirring and mixing.
Form your crust mixture into a ball and place onto your baking sheet. Slowly spread the crust into a circle until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
Place your baking sheet into the oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until lightly browned with crispy edges.
Remove your crust from the oven and add your pizza sauce and toppings of your choice. Once you've topped your pizza with all your favorite flavors, bake for an additional 8 minutes.
Allow your pizza to cool for 5 minutes. Slice, and enjoy!
