Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe
Ingredients: 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese 1 egg, beaten 1 tsp Italian seasonings 1/2 tsp crushed garlic 1/2 tsp salt pizza sauce & toppings of your choice Directions: To rice the cauliflower, cut florets into chunks and pulse in a food processor until you see rice-like bits. You could also use a cheese grater to produce the tiny pieces. Do not over process, you don't want mush. Microwave the riced cauliflower in a bowl for 5-8 minutes depending on your microwave. No need to add water. One large head of cauliflower will yield about 3 cups of riced cauliflower. Use it to make more pizzas immediately, or store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray or use parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup riced, cooked cauliflower, 1 egg and your cheese. Next, add Italian seasonings, crushed garlic and salt. Making sure everything is well mixed, place your "dough" on the cookie sheet and pat out a 9" round. Be sure not to press it too thin as it's easy to create holes. Bake your dough at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Add sauce, cheese, and your favorite pre-cooked toppings to your pizza. Place pizza under broiler just until cheese is melted; be sure to keep an eye on it! Enjoy!
