CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST

I LOVE pizza.  Pretty sure I could eat one on a weekly basis.  I don’t but I do always keep my eyes open for healthier alternatives to satiate my cravings!  So try this out!!

Ingredients:

1 head cauliflower —leaves removed, washed and chopped

1 egg white

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan or Mozzarella cheese

1 tsp Italian herb seasoning or can make your own using rosemary, thyme and oregano

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a round pizza pan with parchment paper.

Steam cauliflower using either a pan for steaming or simply add a small amount of water to the chopped cauliflower and cover with a lid.  Steam 15-20 minutes.

Place cooked cauliflower florets in a food processor and process to a “rice” texture.  Transfer to a bowl lined with a double-layered cheesecloth.  Squeeze the liquid from the cauliflower inside the cheesecloth repeating this a few times until barely any liquid comes out.

Transfer cauliflower to a mixing bowl and add egg white, cheese, herb seasoning and black pepper.  Mix well.  Now press the cauliflower mixture onto the pizza pan and with your hands, flatten to form a thin pizza crust.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until lightly browned, and remove from the oven.

Top with your favorite toppings, including a little more cheese, and bake again until cheese turns golden brown.

Now ENJOY this healthier, 21 Day Approved Pizza!!
