I know Mud and Love is coming late to the cauliflower-crust pizza party, but its only because I wanted to try it myself and develop a recipe that I know is tasty and that works! Follow my version below and your gut will thank you: it’s not only high in fibre, but with the addition of tasty, keto-friendly toppings, you could fool yourself and your family that you are having The Real Thing. (1 pizza = 2 servings, and it comes in at 11g carbs per serving (including toppings). If you aren’t convinced, do try out my Fathead Pizza Base, which is just as delicious!
(To make the cauliflower rice, simply blitz cauliflower florets using a food processor. Your yield weight should be 300g / 10.6oz)
Cook the blitzed cauliflower in the microwave on high for 6 minutes. Remove and tip onto muslin (cheesecloth). Allow to cool else it will be difficult to handle. Using the muslin, squeeze and discard all the liquid from the cauliflower as much as possible (this a very important step).
Place the cauliflower into a bowl along with the dried oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, olive oil, beaten egg and almond flour. Mix well and season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Form a ball of dough with the mixture and place onto a tray lined with baking paper. Use clean hands to press down and shape into a round shape (of even height) to resemble a round pizza. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove the pizza and scatter over the grated mozzarella. Arrange the mushrooms and pepperoni on top and return the pizza to the oven for an additional 10 minutes. (You may want to increase the oven temperature to max for the last 5 minutes to really get that cheese bubbling – just keep an eye on it to ensure the base doesn’t burn.)
Remove the pizza and top with fresh rocket. Serve immediately. Delicious!
The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest).
Having an inexpensive roll of muslin / cheesecloth in the kitchen is essential for squeeeezing all the moisture from the cauliflower.

In short, you need not subtract anything further.
