Cauliflower Pizza Crust

This week in my Abundant Harvest box I got a HUGE head of cauliflower! I really like eating it steamed or just raw, but that's pretty boring so I started searching for other options. I found a few posts for Cauliflower Pizza Crust. It seemed pretty easy, but a few of the recipes were a bit complicated and had ingredients I didn't have. So like always I tossed out the recipes and just experimented with my own. One nice thing about cooking is that if you can understand the basic process for something you can then add to it or change it to make it your own! So here is my simple recipe for Cauliflower Pizza Crust!


Ingredients:
1 head of Cauliflower
1 egg
1 1/2 cups Grated Mozzarella
2 TBS Parmesan
2 TBS Chopped Parsley
Pizza Toppings - Whatever you like, I used tomato, green bell pepper, onion, and basil. I just used Prego for the sauce and the leftover Mozzarella.

First grate the head of cauliflower and cook it in the microwave for about 6-8 minutes. Let it cool and then place it in a tea towel and squeeze out the liquid.

Preheat your oven to 425*. Mix together the grated cauliflower, egg, mozzarella, parmesan, and parsley. Lay parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Place the cauliflower mixture onto the parchment paper and press it down. About 1/2 inch thick.


Place it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until it looks like this...


Top it with your sauce, cheese, and other toppings, then place it back in the oven for about 5-ish minutes, or just until the cheese is all melted and the veggies are cooked.


Looks pretty yummy doesn't it?? We were pretty skeptical but it was actually really good! It's more of a knife and fork pizza, but it's still great! You get a little taste of the cauliflower, but not to the point where it's overwhelming, its a nice balance with the veggies and cheese.


This made a 12" pizza which was perfect for my husband and I. We were quite surprised at how filling it was! Usually we can eat a giant Dominio's pizza, but we ended up with a couple slices of this left over!

I hope you all try this and put your own spin on it! If you try this out, let me know how it went on my Facebook page HERE!
