Vegetable Pizza with Cauliflower Crust

Serves: 2

INGREDIENTS

Crust

  • 1/2 medium head of cauliflower
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 ounce part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 medium egg

Toppings

  • 3 tablespoons of your favorite pasta sauce
  • 1 ounce part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2-2/3 cup assorted vegetables (e.g., mushrooms, peppers, and spinach)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Using a food processor or hand grater, shred cauliflower into itty-bitty pieces.
  3. Microwave cauliflower in a medium bowl on high for 4 minutes, or until cooked through. Allow to cool.
  4. Once cauliflower is cool, combine with garlic, dried herbs, 1 ounce of the cheese, and the egg. Stir well so that egg is well distributed through the mixture.
  5. Transfer mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form into a pizza crust—the shape is up to you.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crust is slightly golden brown and retains its shape.
  7. Add sauce, remaining cheese, and your desired veggies. Place under broiler for 5 minutes or less—just until the cheese has melted and the crust has reached a deeper shade of brown.
  8. Serve up your tasty pizza and feel a little more adventurous

Note: You’ll also need parchment paper for this recipe.
