keto radish & daikon pizza crust
Keto Radish & Daikon Pizza Crust
We are all so familiar with the popular gluten-free cauliflower pizza crust, but I have tested and confirmed with my palate that a pizza crust can be made out of almost any vegetable! The Keto Radish & Daikon Pizza Crust is proof of my new discovery. These vegetables don’t get enough credit because while they are quite bitter if eaten raw, cooking them removes most of the bitter flavor and they can be quite tasty!
While I love radishes, there are only so many I can eat in a summer. I rarely eat them raw anymore and instead make kimchi, the Radish & Lemon BurgerFit burger, and this amazing gluten-free, Keto Radish & Daikon Pizza Crust. This is also a great use of both the root and the greens, which are all edible! I try to have as little waste as possible in the kitchen and this is an easy way to use it all.
I have a firm belief that you can make pizza crust out of almost any vegetable! I have made, tested, and palate-verified this many times. -Alane Boyd

Radishes grow really quickly in gardens and don’t take up a lot of space so a lot of gardeners will grow them in between crops. They can get a harvest or two of radishes before their other crops come in. Daikons (white radish) take longer to grow but are absolutely beautiful coming in and they produce a lot of food between their root and their greens! This was the daikon situation I was in one afternoon from just a handful of daikons I harvested! You will be sure to have more than enough ingredients you need to make this Keto Radish & Daikon Pizza Crust!

Radish & Daikon Pizza Crust

If you are looking for something to do with all those radishes and daikons you've harvested from your garden or received in your CSA box, this is a perfect recipe for you! It is also gluten-free, dairy-free, Keto & whole30 - which can't say about many pizza crusts out there! This recipe is also very forgiving so if you don't have the exact amounts of the vegetables, it will still turn out. You can also experiment with adding parmesan cheese to the recipe if you eat dairy. The parmesan will help everything hold together better and add additional flavor.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven at 425 degrees.
  • Rough chop the daikons and radishes so that they can fit in the food processor more easily. You will have to do a few rounds of food processing to get all of them done. As you finish a batch in the food processor, scoop it into a medium pot.
  • Once all of the daikons, radishes, and greens are finished food processing and in the pot, start to cook on medium-low heat. It is not necessary to add water or oil to the pot as the vegetables will release water on their own.
  • Stir frequently to keep the vegetables from burning. Cook for approximately 10 minutes. The vegetables will be fragrant and spicy smelling.
  • After the vegetables are finished cooking, remove pot from the stove and let cool for a few minutes. You do not want to burn your hands in the next step.
  • Scoop vegetable mixture into a cheese cloth or kitchen towel. Twist the towel around the mixture and squeeze tight repeatedly over the pot you used to cook them in. You are trying to remove as much water as you can. This will keep your pizza crust from being mushy.
  • Remove the vegetable mixture from the towel into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • With your fingers, flatten to 1/4" thickness onto a baking sheet or pizza pan.
  • Bake in oven for approximately 10 minutes. The corners will start to brown when finished.
  • Remove from oven and top the pizza with your favorite sauce and toppings or check out our two BurgerFit Deconstructed recipes: All-in Kitchen Sink and BBQ Pizza for inspiration!

Notes

  1. Use your favorite flour in place of almond flour for a nut-free recipe!
  2. Add additional spices to your crust like red pepper flakes, dried basil, and thyme.
  3. Try our favorite pizza sauce on your pizza!
