This is THE best (food) invention EVER!  I was skeptical at first, pizza crust made out of cauliflower…really?  YES!  It is amazing….even the kids loved it.    Start off by grating the cauliflower with a box grater (I tried grating it in a blender, but it did not come out fine enough).

Microwave the grated cauliflower for about 5 min and then mix in the cheese and egg and form into a crust on a parchment lined tray.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 a large head)

1 1/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

1 large egg, lightly beaten

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup tomato sauce

 

Preheat oven to 425ºF.

 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

 

Using a box grater, grate the cauliflower into fine crumbles.  Place in a large bowl and microwave for about 5 minutes on high.  Add in one cup of shredded mozzarella, parmesan cheese, egg and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well.  Place on parchment lined baking sheet and pat into a 10-inch round.  Bake for about 20-30 minutes, or until golden.

 

Top the crust with the sauce, 1/4 cup mozzarella, and your favorite pizza toppings (onions, mushrooms, artichokes, anchovies, etc!).  Bake in the oven another 15 minutes until bubbly.
