What you need:
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp garlic salt
olive oil (optional)
***pizza sauce, shredded cheese and your choice of toppings*
What you do:
Ok so there's this technique out there called 'ricing' the cauliflower... yeah, new to me too! But here's how it's done!
To "Rice" the Cauliflower:
Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater). Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes (some microwaves are more powerful than others, so you may need to reduce this cooking time). There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself.
****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.**** I ended up just making 3 pizzas, LOL! Hey, we now have lunch already made for today, right?!
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9" round. Optional: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
Ta-da!!!! YUM! DELISH! ENJOY! Let me know when you try this! We LOVED it in our house, even the kids ate it! Of course, their kiddie pizzas were just plain cheese and sauce, but still they ate the cauliflower crust! Haha, Mommy tricked you!!! You'll thank me later kids ;)
