Homemade broccoli crust pizza, gluten-free and low-carb and comes together in under 30 minutes.
I mean I think it’s safe to say that we all need a healthy pizza crust in our lives. Everyone loves pizza, but we all sort of try to avoid it because of the calories and carb overload.
This one is even better than the popular Cauliflower crust. To be honest with you, when I was experimenting with this crust I happily finished it off without any toppings at all, that’s how good it is.
And another plus is, that you are eating tons of vegetables while you’re at it and you will not overeat with this broccoli pizza crust because you will be fulfilled very quickly and simply enjoy pizza with health benefits!
It is also made in minutes, especially if you use left over broccoli.

Pre heat the oven to 220° C / 425° F with a baking tray in the oven
To make the base have your Broccoli steamed and chilled. You can do this the day before or use leftover from dinner the night before. (that’s what I usually do).
Place the broccoli in de food processor an pulse a few times until it ressembles rice.
Transfer to a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
Lay out a piece of parchment paper and form a circle with the broccoli mash.
Transfer to oven and bake for about 12-14 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
Remove the tray from the from oven and put the marinara sauce and the mozzarella and/or cheese on the Broccoli base. At this point feel free to add desired toppings (veggies or meat).
Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted
