- 2 Cups Broccoli Rice *See Notes.
- 3 Eggs
- ¼ Cup Coconut Flour
- 2 Tablespoons Avocado Oil
- ½ Cup Fresh Basil You can sub with ½ teaspoon dried basil.
- ½ Teaspoon Salt
- ¼ Teaspoon Black Pepper
- ¼ Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Preparing the Pizza
Start by adding broccoli rice, eggs, coconut flour, avocado oil, basil, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder into a mixing bowl. Stir together until a thick, chunky dough forms.
Next, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the mixed broccoli dough into the center. With damp hands, press the dough into a circle.
Adding the Toppings
Remove the pizza crust from the oven and add your toppings! I used fresh sliced tomatoes and basil, but you can add pizza sauce, vegetables or whatever you have on hand!
Place the pizza back in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Remove the pizza from the oven, and slice with a pizza cutter or large knife. Serve hot!
How to make Broccoli Rice
You can purchase pre-packaged broccoli from the grocery store, but it’s a lot less expensive to make it yourself! Start by chopping the head of broccoli in half, and then cut one half into similarly sized pieces. Add about two cups of chopped broccoli into the food processor. Pulse on and off until it becomes a “rice” consistency. (Takes about 30 seconds.) Repeat until you have enough for the recipe!
- Line your baking sheet with parchment paper! This will prevent the crust from sticking.
- Bake the crust for at least 25 minutes before adding any toppings. (Especially sauce!) You want the crust to be firm before adding any toppings that would make it soggy.
- Use a pizza cutter! It works great for making perfect pizza slices.
- Wet your hands slightly before pressing out the pizza! It helps to keep the dough from sticking.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I swap coconut flour for another flour?
I have only tested this recipe with coconut flour, and I would not reccomend swapping for anything else.
Can I add meat for extra protein?
Yes! Make sure whatever meat you add on top is pre-cooked.
How to store leftovers
Leftovers will store well in the refrigerator for about 5 days! I stack the slices in a large glass Tupperware container, you can use parchment paper to keep them from touching. You can also wrap them in tin foil or a reusable wrap. To re-heat, I recommend baking them for a few minutes in your oven, or toaster oven. I found that the microwave makes it a bit soggy.
