      • 1 lb cauliflower florets
      • 1 egg
      • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
      • 1/8 tsp black pepper
      • 2 garlic cloves, minced
      • 1/2 oz grated Parmesan cheese
      • 1 tsp olive oil
      • 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
      • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
      • 1/2 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
      • 1 tomato, sliced
      • 1/3 cup fresh baby spinach


      • In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely chopped.
      • In a microwave-safe bowl, cook cauliflower for 5 minutes, or until tender. Place cauliflower in a towel and squeeze out excess water so it is completely dry.
      • In a bowl, mix egg, cauliflower, 2 tablespoons of the basil, black pepper, garlic and Parmesan cheese until combined.
      • On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread cauliflower dough out into a pizza round. Lightly coat cauliflower crust with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
      • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and bell pepper and sauté for 5 minutes, or until tender. Set aside.
      • Remove crust from oven. Increase oven temperature to 450°F.
      • Top cauliflower crust with mozzarella cheese, sautéed mushrooms and bell pepper, tomato, spinach, remaining 2 tablespoons basil and black pepper to taste. Bake for 7 minutes, or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
