Cauliflower Pizza Crust

So the recipe for today's creation can be found here but it should be noted that I make my cauliflower rice using this method.

All prepped and ready to bake.
 Nice and golden brown after 15 minutes in the oven
 Toppings Prepped (sauce, mushrooms, mozza cheese, turkey pepperoni)
 The finished product

It was good! The seasonings on the crust is a must - really helped disguise the cauliflower and made it seem like real crust. Rob approved also.

Side note - this was my first time using my broiler in the oven. It's really uneven with it's temps! One side got crisper than the other (which you can see in the above pic). Just a note to remind myself to watch it carefully and rotate if it's going to be in the oven longer than a minute.

  • 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp fennel
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • pizza or alfredo sauce
  • toppings (make sure meats are cooked)
  • mozzarella cheese
  1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit.  Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Press evenly on the pan. Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley.
  3. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe).
  4. Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted.
