Yield: 1 9-12″ pizza, depending on pan size
Total time: 25 minutes
1 head of fresh cauliflower, shredded (2 cups)
1 large egg
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
marinara sauce, organic jarred
shaved parmigiano reggiano
Preheat your oven to 450˚ F. Remove the leaves and stems from cauliflower. Shred the cauliflower in bunches using a cheese grater. You will need about 2 cups (for a 8-9″ pan) or more like 3 cups (for a 12″ pan).
Add grated cauliflower to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 7-8 minutes. Mix heated cauliflower with egg, cheese, garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
Take this mixture and press into the bottom of a pan or cast iron skillet that has been sprayed well with cooking spray. Really spray it well, you don’t want the crust to stick! Even spray the top of crust once it is in the pan so that the edges don’t stick. Don’t worry if it looks like a thin layer– it will fluff up a bit while cooking.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. You want it to get pretty golden so you know it’s nice and crispy. Remove pizza from oven.
While you get prepare your toppings, set the oven to Broil. Spread a thin layer of marinara over the crust and sprinkle mozzarella cheese and parmigiano over the sauce. Add whatever toppings your heart desires!
Broil pizza for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown and cheese starts to bubble. Enjoy!More Recipes from Cuoco Contento
