Cauliflower Pizza Crust

A delicious pizza crust made from cauliflower and cheese! 
Great if you're watching carbs or are gluten free! 

You'll Need- 

1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower (instructions below!)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I used weight watchers)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon crushed garlic
½ teaspoon of crushed red pepper
salt and pepper

To "rice" the cauliflower take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. (One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.)

If you have a food processor, add the florets into it and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over pulse or you will accidently puree it! (If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater or chop very finely with a large chopping knife). Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. (no need to add water).

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lay parchment paper down on cookie sheet … the first time I tired this recipe, spraying the pan with oil wasn’t enough and my whole crust got really stuck to the pan :(

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and other seasonings. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9" round. 

(Use parchment paper - this ended up getting stuck!)

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes...flip and bake for another 5-10. I like my crust crispy so I left mine in a little longer even! Remove from oven and add your favorite pre cooked topping! Place back into the oven until toppings are warmed through and the cheese is melty! (approximately 5 minutes).
