The BEST Cauliflower Pizza

I have made cauliflower pizza before, but it has been awhile.   Yesterday I decided to experiment with a few recipes and this one was a WINNER!  I am not lying when I tell you this tastes just as good as “real” pizza.   I had a slice last night with dinner and then re-heated a slice in the microwave for lunch today and it was absolutely delicious both times!

For the crust
  1. 1 large head of cauliflower
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  4. 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  5. 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
For the toppings
  1. Whatever you like!
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray the paper with non-stick cooking spray
  3. Remove the leaves of the cauliflower and cut the florets away from the stem
  4. Place the cauliflower florets in a food process and pulse (I used the fine shredder attachment of my Breville food processer to “rice” the cauliflower and it worked GREAT! You can also buy pre-riced cauliflower at Trader Joe’s. You will need about 3 cups of “riced” cauliflower to make the crust
  5. Place the “riced” cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 4 minutes
  6. Once the cauliflower has cooled some, use a cheese cloth or clean dish towel to squeeze out as much water as possible from the cauliflower
  7. Combine the drained cauliflower, 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, 2 eggs and Italian seasoning in a large bowl and mix to make a “dough”
  8. Place the dough in the middle of the lined baking sheet and spread into a rectangle. You can make your rectangle as big or as small as you want depending on how thick you like your crust
  9. Bake anywhere between 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how thick you made the crust. I made my crust about 1/4 inch thick and it took about 25 minutes to bake. Check on the crust throughout the baking process, you want to remove it from the oven when the bottom just starts to brown
  10. Top with a few spoonfuls of pizza sauce and your toppings of choice (I topped this one with ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese and sliced pepperoni)
  11. Return to the oven for about 3 – 5 minutes
