Photo & recipe courtesy www.gimmedelicious.com

Ingredients:

  • 1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower – should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp basil or rosemary minced (or dry)
  • ½ tsp oregano minced (or dry)
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup diced bell peppers yellow, orange, red, green, or any combo of your choice
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup canned corn (optional–not Keto or Paleo)
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes diced

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  2. Remove the stems from the cauliflower and cut into chunks. Place the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse it until it resembles the texture of rice. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater or chop it very finely.
  3. Microwave the processed cauliflower uncovered in a microwave safe bowl for approximately 4-5 minutes on high. Remove it from the microwave and allow it to cool for at least 4-5 minutes (don’t rush this step). After the cauliflower is slightly cooled, place it in a kitchen towel and squeeze all the liquid out of it. Be sure to squeeze as much liquid as humanly possible.
  4. Combine the cooked cauliflower, egg, garlic, cheese, and seasonings. Stir until a dough texture forms. Spread the cauliflower mixture onto lightly greased parchment paper or a pizza pan in the shape of a pizza crust.
  5. Bake the crust for 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven), or until the crust is golden and crispy.
  6. Remove from the oven and top with pizza sauce then cheese then chopped veggies.
  7. Place the pizza back in the oven and bake for another 12-15 minutes.
