Ingredients

  • 1 medium cauliflower head
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (for topping)
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (e.g., sliced bell peppers, olives, cherry tomatoes)
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Wash and dry the cauliflower, then cut it into florets. Pulse the florets in a food processor until they resemble rice-like grains.
  3. Place the cauliflower “rice” in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 4-5 minutes until cooked. Allow it to cool, then transfer to a clean kitchen towel. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the cauliflower, beaten egg, 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, dried oregano, garlic powder, and salt. Mix well to form a dough.
  5. Press the cauliflower dough onto the prepared baking sheet, shaping it into a round pizza crust. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the crust turns golden brown.
  6. Remove the crust from the oven and spread the pizza sauce evenly over the top. Sprinkle with the remaining shredded mozzarella cheese.
  7. Add your favorite pizza toppings on top of the cheese.
  8. Return the pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Garnish with fresh basil leaves before serving.
