Cauliflower Pizza

Yep, you read it right.  Cauliflower pizza.  Stop making that ugly face...This is delicious.  My good friend Sarah had pinned this on Pinterest, and I couldn't believe how good it looked.  I had been so over carb-ed during the holiday season I decided to take a couple weeks off.  This was a perfect recipe.  Beth from Eat.Drink.Smile is a genius, and her WEBSITE is fabulous. 

  • 1 Cup Cooked Cauliflower 
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Toppings
  • Shredded Mozzarella

Preheat your oven to 450.

I had never really dealt with cauliflower before, and I wasn't quiet sure how to remove all the stems.  I just started hacking at the bottom, and I began pulling "trees" off, and dealt with them individually.  After you just have the top of cauliflower place it in a food processor. Process until cauliflower looks like a grain like substance not a puree.  Place cauliflower in a microwavable bowl, and cook for 8 minutes. 

Add 1 cup shredded cheese, egg, and spices (You should have about 1-2 cups left over that can be refrigerated up to week).  Form a 10 inch circle on a greased cookie sheet, and brush on olive oil to create a cruncher crust.  

Bake for 15 minutes at 450. 

Doesn't it look good?  YummmmmY.  Go ahead and turn your oven broiler on.  I used this pizza sauce I found at sprouts, it is fabulous:

Spread pizza sauce on "crust".  I only added chopped bell peppers, but you could add meat or other toppings if you wanted.  After this add your shredded cheese.  About 1/2 - 1 cup.   I realized after I made this that there was a total of 2 cups of cheese in mine, and wished I would of not used so much.  Do not get me wrong it was wonderful, but I would like it a little lower calorie.  :)  This produces about 2 servings.  If you are feeding a man you might want to make two, and leave out the part that the crust is made out of cauliflower.  :)
