Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust
This easy crust recipe is gluten-free and vegan.

1 Large head of organic Cauliflower
3/4 cup of ground almonds
1 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
Himalayan salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup chia seeds
3/4 cup water

Preheat your oven to 400F.

Wash your cauliflower or soak it in a cleaning solution to get rid of dirt, bacteria, and pesticides.
Measure out your seeds and rinse them using a fine-mesh strainer.
Soak your chia seeds in water and place the mixture in your fridge 20 minutes before use.
Rinse the cauliflower and pat it dry.
Chop the cauliflower into medium-sized chunks and pulse in a blender until it is a fine rice-like texture.
Measure 3 cups of the cauliflower and pour into a large bowl.
Add the seasoning and almonds and stir until combined.
Make a hole in the center of the mixture and add the soaked chia.
Use your hands to mix the dough and shape it into a ball. Note that the dough will be more sticky and less firm than traditional dough.
Place the dough on a well-oiled baking pan and press it down until the entire pan is covered, leaving a ridge around the rim.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Cover the crust with tomato sauce and pizza toppings. Bake for 5-10 minutes, let it cool, and enjoy.
