My low carb cauliflower pizza was made in a 2 part steamer for the best results! You put water in the bottom pan and set the other pan on top. The top pan has holes in the bottom. You add the cover and boil the water, and it steams the vegetable. Open top and check to see if the cauliflower is done when a knife or fork very easily slides into the vegetable. This helps to keep the liquid separate from the cauliflower. Because you do not want a runny pizza crust!

  1. My recipe made a lot – I guess my cauliflower head was large – can I freeze the balance with out baking it first? I have enough for 2 crusts. Thanks!

    1. Yes, you can freeze the steamed cauliflower. Just make sure you drain it well when ready to use, to remove all the excess water that comes with freezing.
