Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Did you ever believe such a thing could exist??
"Cauliflower Crust Pizza"
Ya, I never knew that could ever be a thing. Let alone taste delicious!
If you're on a 'Low Carb' Diet and am needing something that will consume those fast food cravings, then this is the treat for you!
OK so I promised a few of you a Blog Post on this recipe, so here we go!

Ingredients you will need:
1 Head of Cauliflower
1/4 cup of Parmesan
1/4 Mozzarella
1 Egg
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Oragano
1/2 tsp Dried Basil
1/2 tsp Garlic (Either Powder or Minced)
Optional:: You can add Red Pepper Flakes, Rosemary, etc, to give that extra bit of zing to the flavour of your crust.


1) Wash and separate your Cauliflower



2) Since I don't own a Food Processor or a good Blender, I had to Grate my Cauliflower. Takes a while, but this is the longest part of the whole process. 
You don't need a full head of Cauliflower. You will probably only need a half. But I chose to grate all of mine just so I could have it ready for the next time I make it. Because Lez-Be Honest, grating sucks, and I don't want to do it again.
Grate enough to make 3 Full Cups.


3) Your Cauliflower should look like 'Rice' in the end.
Put your 3 Cups of Cauliflower into the microwave and Cook for 4 minutes.


4) While that's cooking, combine all the rest of the ingredients into a bowl.


5) FORGOT PICTURE. The next step is SUPER important. You will need a very thin towel or Cheese Cloth. Once it is done in the microwave, let it sit for a good while until its not scolding hot anymore. Then put it into the cloth and squeeze the absolute crab out of that Cauliflower. Tons of water should come out. And once you think you got it all.....move it around in your hands and squeeze again and again! Get that water outa there!

6) Ok, so once that is done, combine all the ingredients. I used a hand mixer to combine mine thoroughly. Once it's well mixed, make it into a ball (like doe) and flatten it onto parchment paper onto a cooking sheet. TIP:: Be sure to PAM the Parchment for extra stick free-ness.


7) Cook at 450 for 11 minutes or until slight golden. Take out of the oven and add whatever ingredients you like! Everyone loves something different so go for it!
Once everything is added on, cook for another 7 minutes.

DONE!


A DELICIOUS low carb Pizza Substitute. 

Enjoy!


SIDE NOTE: The ingredients above will make a pizza about the size of a SMALL regular Pizza.
