Recipe Ingredients for cauliflower pizzA

1 head cauliflower
1 egg
1/3 cup shredded low fat mozzarella
1/2 tsp fennel seed
1 tbs. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup tomato sauce

Recipe Directions for cauliflower pizzA

  1. Toppings of your choice, tomato, pesto or Alfredo sauce, cheese, precooked meats* & precooked veggies*

  2. Preheat oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with either a Silpat or parchment paper.

  3. Place the cooked Cauli-Rice into a tea towel and squeeze all the water out of the Cauli-Rice. It is important to get the rice as dry as possible so that there won?t be extra moisture in the crust which will prevent it from crisping up properly.

  4. In a medium bowl combine the dry Cauli-Rice, egg, 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella, fennel seeds, Italian seasoning, salt & pepper and mix to combine well. Press the cauliflower mixture into an even thickness on the prepared pan, either into a round or rectangular shaped pizza. I kept the crust pretty thin, about 1/4-inch thick. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the crust is firm and golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and turn off the oven and turn on the broiler and move the rack to up close to the broiler. Top the cooked crust with sauce, cheese and toppings of your choice. Place under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly and melted

  5. Enjoy!

  6. * Meats and veggies need to be cooked before placing them on the pizza as after the crust is baked, the pizza is only under the broiler to melt the cheese, not long enough to properly cook meats and veggies.
