Cauliflower Pizza Steak

Love the idea of cauliflower pizza, but don't have time to make the dough? Try my Cauliflower Pizza Steaks. Watch as I show you how easy they are to make!
Cauliflower pizza is all the rage in the paleo world. It’s basically a mixture of cauliflower, eggs, and cheese, all blended together then baked to form a pizza crust. If you haven’t tried it yet, let me tell you, it’s really good. But one day I found myself craving a slice of pizza without the patchka (that’s Yiddish for too much work). So I decided to simplify the whole process. This Cauliflower Pizza Steak is simply sliced cauliflower — cut into 1/2-inch thick steaks — topped with sauce and cheese. One bite and my crowd went wild! This healthified dish takes less than 10 minutes to assemble and is just as fast to bake. Get creative with your favorite pizza toppings and have some fun. Watch my video as I show you step-by-step how to make your own:

Cauliflower Pizza Steaks

Ingredients

  • Olive oil for pan
  • 3 Heads of cauliflower
  • 1 Jar store bought marinara sauce
  • 1 Bag shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 Bag shredded parmesan cheese
  • Topping ideas: basil, mushrooms, olives, onions

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.  

  2. Slice your cauliflower into ½ inch thick steaks. Make sure to keep the stem of the cauliflower intact so your steaks don’t turn into florets. Reserve the rest of the cauliflower that has fallen apart for later. You may only get a few “steaks” from each head of cauliflower. With practice, you can squeeze one or two more. 

  3. Drizzle olive oil generously on your pan. You may want to line the pan with parchment paper to make cleanup easier.

  4. Place cauliflower steaks on pan. Drizzle again with olive oil.  

  5. Bake cauliflower in oven for about 10 minutes until slightly softened and browned on edges.

  6. Remove from oven and top with marinara sauce, cheeses, and your toppings of choice. 

  7. Return to oven and bake until bubbly and crispy 10-20 minutes.

Recipe Notes

What to do with the rest of your florets? Spread them on a separate baking sheet and repeat the process. The end result is amazingly crispy, cheesy and saucy baked cauliflower and taste like pizza too!
