Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Total Time: 50 Minutes
Preparation Time: 30 Minutes
Cooking Time: 20 Minutes
Recipe Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces frozen cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 2 low-fat tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon seed blend
  • 2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cover a pizza pan with parchment paper.
  • Pour frozen cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave until just thawed, about 1 minute. Place cauliflower in the middle of a thin cloth napkin; twist and squeeze repeatedly to wring out as much moisture as possible. Transfer cauliflower to a food processor. Process until crumbled. Return to the cloth napkin and repeat twisting and squeezing. Transfer cauliflower pulp to a mixing bowl.
  • Add egg, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, seed blend, 1 tsp. dried basil, garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp. salt to the bowl with the pulp and combine. Form into a ball on your pan. Press into a flat 8-inch circle. Use fingertips to create a smooth outer edge.
  • Bake in the preheated oven on the center rack until top begins to turn golden brown, 16 to 17 minutes. Remove from oven and use a spatula to loosen paper. Flip crust and return to oven until golden, 5 to 6 minutes more.
  • Combine olive oil, garlic, basil, and salt in a bowl. Spread sauce on top of baked crust. Top with your favorite toppings!
