Cauliflower pizza

I found this recipe on Instagram!

This passed the test with my kids. They were a little worried though.

It was a fun way to eat our cauliflower.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

1 head cauliflower 7-8" wide
1 large egg
1/2 cup Parmesan or Mozzerella cheese (grated/shredded & not packed)
1 tsp Italian herb seasoning
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line round pizza baking sheet with parchment paper.
Rinse cauliflower, remove outer leaves and separate into florets with a paring knife. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and process until (rice) texture. 

Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove cooked cauliflower from the oven and transfer to a bowl lined with a double layered cheesecloth.

Then squeeze the liquid out of the ball, cauliflower inside the cheesecloth, as hard as you can.  Be patient and do this a few times until barely any liquid domes out.

Increase oven temp to 450 degrees. Transfer cauliflower to a mixing bowl along with egg, cheese, herb seasoning, salt, pepper and mix to combine. Transfer cauliflower mixture onto the same baking sheet you used to roast the florets. Flatten with your hands until thin pizza crust forms. Bake 15-20 minutes and remove from the oven.

Top with your favorite toppings and bake again until cheese on top turns golden brown.

Slice and enjoy.
