Cheesy Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Meal Type(s):



INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 a large head)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp basil leaves, I used dry
  • 1/2 tsp oregano leaves, I used dry
  • Salt and pepper, as desired
  • 2/4 cup crushed tomatoes, canned
  • 1-2 cups Armstrong Monterey Jack with jalapeño cheese, grated
  • 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • Fresh basil if desired, for topping

DIRECTIONS

  • Line a pizza baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 400.
  • Using a grater, grate the cauliflower until you have 2.5 cups of cauliflower.
  • Place in a large bowl and microwave covered for 3 minutes, stir and microwave again for another 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let cool. Use paper towel to squeeze/press out any moisture. The dryer it is, the crispier the crust will become, and it'll bake faster.  
  • Mix the egg and the dried basil and oregano and your desired amount of salt and pepper into the cauliflower and stir to combine.
  • Dump the combined mixture onto the parchment paper and press to make a round crust. Spray the top with nonstick spray and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden. Bake time mostly depends on how much water you squeezed out of the microwaved cauliflower. 
  • Once cooked, take the crust out of the oven and top the pizza with the tomato sauce, halved cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and grated cheese. 
  • Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Enjoy!
