  • 2 cups “riced” or grated cauliflower (about ½ of large head)
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • cups grated mozzarella cheese divided
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup pizza sauce
  • fresh basil leaves
  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400°F.
  2. Grate the cauliflower with a box grater or finely chop it in a food processor. Place the cauliflower in the center of a clean kitchen towel and twist it to squeeze all the water out.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a large bowl and add the Parmesan cheese, ½ cup of the mozzarella cheese, oregano, flour, egg, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  4. Line the inside of a 7-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Spread the cauliflower mixture into pan, pressing it up the sides of the pan.
  5. Air-fry for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from air fryer and invert the cauliflower crust onto a plate. Slide the crust back into the baking pan to cook the bottom of the crust. Air-fry at 400°F for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from air fryer and invert the crust back onto aluminum foil so that the crust is now right side up again. Place the foil and crust back into the baking pan. Spread the pizza sauce over the crust and top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and some dried oregano. Air-fry the pizza at 360°F for 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and browned.
  7. Let the pizza sit in the air fryer for a few minutes after it has finished cooking. Pull the pizza out of the pan with the aluminum foil and transfer it to a cutting board. Remove the foil. Top the pizza with fresh basil, cut into four wedges and serve.

Recipe Notes

Give this pasta a little crunch by frying ½ cup coarse or panko breadcrumbs in 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat, seasoning with salt and pepper. Top the pasta with the crumbs at the end.
