Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1/2tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • Olive oil (optional)
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Other additional toppings of your choice

Instructions

  1. Take 1 large head of cauliflower, remove the stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to a food processor and pulse just until it looks like rice. Alternatively, you can grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater.
  2. Place the riced cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl, add 1/4 cup water, and microwave for 6-8 minutes, stirring half-way through.
  3. To make the pizza, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a pizza pan or cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower, mozzarella cheese and egg together and stir well. Add the oregano, garlic, onion powder and garlic salt. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and shape into a 9-inch circle. Brush the crust with olive oil to help it brown in the oven.
  5. Baked at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes, until the crust is browned and cooked through the middle.
  6. Remove the crust from the oven, add your sauce and toppings. Place under a broiler at high heat until the cheese is melted and bubbly. (About 3-4 minutes).
  7. Allow the pizza to cool slightly, then cut into slices and serve.
