Supreme Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

For the topping:

  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1/4 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/4 green pepper, sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Using a food processor, pulse the cauliflower until "riced" or broken up into small, rice-sized pieces.

Place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes (no liquid needed).

Allow cauliflower to cool slightly and then place in a clean dish towel. Ring out excess liquid. Place back in bowl and fluff with a fork.

Add in egg, 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Mix well.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Dump mixture on to pan and pat with your hands. Crust should be about 1/3" thick. 

Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until nicely browned. 


Remove from heat spread with pizza sauce. Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Top with pepperoni, olives and green peppers. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place back in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
