Skinny Cauliflower-Crusted Pizza

Here’s a pizza recipe that’s actually good for you! This pizza uses a cauliflower crust, which helps to cut back on your carbohydrate and calorie intake. Once you try this tasty recipe, you’ll never want to eat your pizza any other way!

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella, grated
  • 1/2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 large tomato, cut into thin slices

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place the cauliflower into the bowl of your food processor and process until it looks like rice. Remove cauliflower and place in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 8 to 10 minutes or until cauliflower is cooked. 
  3. Once cooked and still hot (but cool enough to handle), place the riced cauliflower into a tea towel or thick paper towel and wring out all of the moisture. It’s important you get it as dry as possible
  4. Add egg, 1/2 cup of mozzarella, seasoning, salt and black pepper to the cauliflower. Mix the ingredients together and press the dough into a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray. Try to shape into a circle, if desired. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. 
  5. Top with tomato slices and remaining mozzarella cheese, then bake for another 20 minutes to finish the pizza.
