1 cup cubed cauliflower, then cooked
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1/2 tsp. 1 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese (for garnish)
pizza sauce and additional toppings of your choice
1. For the cauliflower rice, cut the florets into pieces and mix in a food processor until you see pieces of rice. You can also use a cheese grater to produce the small pieces. Don't over-treat, you don't want porridge.
2. Microwave the cauliflower in cubes in a bowl for 5-8 minutes depending on your microwave. No need to add water. After the microwave, transfer the cauliflower into cubes in a fine mesh colander and drain completely, gently squeezing the excess water. Once drained, transfer the diced cauliflower to a clean cloth and wrap the sides around the cauliflower while gently squeezing out the excess water. This drying process is important!
3. A large head of cauliflower will yield approximately 3 cups of cubed cauliflower. Use it to make more pizzas immediately or keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days.
4. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup cubed cauliflower, 1 egg and your Parmesan. Then add the Italian seasonings, crushed garlic and salt. Make sure everything is well mixed, place your "dough" on the cookie sheet and tap a 9 "circle. Make sure not to squeeze too hard as it is easy to create holes.
5. Bake your dough at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
6. Remove from the oven. Add sauce, mozzarella cheese and your favorite pre-cooked toppings to your pizza. Place the pizza under the grill until the cheese is melted, be sure to watch it!
I hope you enjoy this wonderful cauliflower pizza crust recipe!
