Cauliflower Pizza Crust {Vegan And Gluten-Free!}

Hummus Pizza (Vegan and Gluten-Free) | danceofstoves.com
I've wanted to find a gluten-free pizza crust for a long time, but the problem is that most recipes use prepared gluten-free flours that either has a lot of unhealthy additives or they use hard-to-find ingredients

That's why I love this cauliflower pizza crust; it's perfect, it's delicious, it's crispy, healthy, and the ingredients are easy to find. If you do not like cauliflower, do not worry because it hardly adds flavour; listen to us, you will surely like it!

You only need cauliflower, rice flour, chickpea flour and flax seeds; luckily, they can already be found in almost any supermarket. 

You can also try another flour that you have at home; it is enough to add more or less quantity because each flour needs a different amount of liquid, in this case, flax seeds with water and cauliflower if it is solid, has high water content.

For the filling, we have used hummus instead of tomato, we had not tried it before on pizza, and we loved it, it is delicious and gives it a very original and Mediterranean touch, you can also use our beet hummus, it will be a very nice pizza and colourful. 

On top, you can add whatever you want; we have used two types of cherry tomatoes, black olives, oregano and a drizzle of olive oil (extra virgin, of course).

I have been eating gluten-free for a while, and the truth is that I thought it would cost me more, there are few things that I miss, and if you have suitable recipes, you can do everything without using rare and expensive ingredients.

The problem comes when it comes to eating out, but there are always options, and it seems that there are more and more supermarkets and restaurants with gluten-free products.

In the two photos below, you can see how the pizzas look before and after baking. 

Ideally, bake them without filling until lightly browned, add the filling and bake for another 10 minutes or until the ingredients are cooked. 

Depending on what you add to the pizza, you will have to bake it for more or less time.

We usually add vegetables, so in 10 minutes it is ready because we cut them into small pieces and like them al dente.

With the recipe quantities, we made eight small pizzas, which would be equivalent to two regular (rather large). 

You can make less quantity or freeze them

If you freeze them, I recommend that you bake them before at least 15 or 20 minutes, so you only have to take them out of the freezer, add the ingredients and bake them until they are ready.

We always use the same amount of cauliflower and rice flour, although chickpea flour can vary. 

This depends on the water in the cauliflower, so I recommend that you add a cup of chickpea flour (100 grams) and if the dough is very sticky, add more little by little, although if you go over it and it becomes challenging, you can add a little water.

We have also tried the dough with a bit of homemade tomato sauce and our vegan cheeseand it is impressive; you have to try it; seriously, it is delicious!

We do not add salt because we are pretty bland (just eating, of course!) 

And with the flavour of the ingredients, it seems enough, but you can add salt to your dough or the vegetables

The drizzle of olive oil is optional, especially if you are on a diet, although it gives the pizza a lot of juiciness, and it is worth it. 

Also, we add it later, so it is raw and healthier.

  • 2 or 2 cups of chickpea flour (200 or 400 grams) *
  • Two teaspoon salt (optional)
  • Hummus
  • 32 cherry tomatoes
  • 32 black olives
  • Oregano
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Ingredients SCALE (3x)

  • 9 cup cauliflower (1500 grams)
  • Nine tablespoons of flax seeds + 27 tablespoons of water
  • 3 cup of rice flour (450 grams)
  • 3 or 2 cups of chickpea flour (300 or 600 grams) *
  • Three teaspoon salt (optional)
  • Hummus
  • 48 cherry tomatoes
  • 48 black olives
  • Oregano
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. We preheat the oven to 200ºC or 390ºF.
  2. We have to chop the cauliflower, the stem or hard part we are not going to use, we can save it to make a soup or a cream; we will only use the softest features. We put the cauliflower in a food processor until it is as small as possible as if it were couscous. You may have to do it in steps because it is a lot of cauliflower, and the blades of your mixer or food processor can get stuck.
  3. We put the cauliflower in a frying pan without oil and brown it for about 5 minutes, stirring from time to time so that it does not stick. We let it rest until it cools down. We have to remove the water from the cauliflower; for this, we put it on a napkin, gauze or bag to make vegetable milk, and we have to squeeze it to remove all the water we can.
  4. We put the flax seeds, and the water in the blender, beat them, and let them rest for at least 5 minutes.
  5. In a bowl, add the cauliflower, the flax seeds with water, the rice flour (150 grams) and a cup of chickpea flour (100 grams). You can also add salt or some spice or herb if you want. We mix with our hands. If the dough is very sticky and difficult to handle, you can add more chickpea flour little by little until it has the right texture; we add two cups in total (200 grams). To finish kneading the dough more quickly, you can do it on a floured table.
  6. We shape the pizzas with our hands or with a floured rolling pin and place them on a baking tray with baking paper—Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. We take out the pizzas, spread the hummus, add the chopped tomatoes and black olives and oregano. We bake for another 10 minutes.
  8. We pour a little olive oil on top and serve.

Notes

  • * The amount of chickpea flour may vary depending on the water in the cauliflower.
