Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I've seen this cauliflower pizza crust idea all over Pinterest, and I'm sorry I waited so long to just try it! Some will try to convince you it tastes exactly like flour-based pizza crust - I disagree. It tasted like cheesy, egg-y goodness to me - and that's not a bad thing. 

I also ate it with a fork. Sacrilege, I know.


But, so so worth it.



Cauliflower Pizza Crust

• 1 cup steamed cauliflower, riced (I used 1 1/2 - no worries about being precise)
• 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
• 1 egg
• 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (none on hand? recipe here)


Instructions
Chop cauliflower florets off a head of fresh cauliflower. Steam in the microwave (about 6-7 minutes), then rice in a food processor, or grate with a cheese grater. Mix the riced cauliflower, cheese, and egg. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 - 25 minutes (it all depends on how thick you make your crust). Top with sauce and cheese, then bake for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Enjoy!

And please, for the love of sprinkles - cook this crust on a silpat or coat your cookie sheet with something beforehand! I didn't - and then had the pleasure of scrubbing cauliflower and egg off my cookie sheet for a solid five minutes (after soaking it overnight, ugh!).
