Ingredients

  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 Tsp dried basil
  • 1 egg (whisked)
  • pizza toppings of your choice (I used tomato sauce, feta, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, and black olives)

Note

This cheesy cauliflower crust is a great alternative for a lighter and veggie packed pizza. It holds up great to all your favourite pizza toppings. I found it easiest to eat with a knife and fork.

Directions

1. Pre heat oven to 450 degrees and place a baking sheet in the oven while it's preheating.
2. Cut cauliflower into florets and discard stems and leaves. Place in food processor and pulse until it's crumbled into an almost flour/rice like texture. You should have about 3 cups of cauliflower.
3. Place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 4 minutes. Dump cauliflower onto a plate lined with a clean dishtowel or heavy duty paper towel and set aside until cook enough to handle.
4. Once cooled, wrap it in the towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Place the squeezed cauliflower in a bowl and mix in the remaining ingredients.
5. Lay out a piece of parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Place cauliflower "dough" ball on paper and pat to form a round crust, not too thick or too thin. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
6. Remove from oven and top with your favourite pizza toppings and place back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes, or until toppings are cooked and cheese is melted. Break out your knife and fork and enjoy!
