Looking for gluten-free options, lower carbs, or just more veggies in your diet? This cauliflower pizza is a delicious choice. If you don’t have time to make your own cauliflower rice, you can find it in the frozen food section.
1 lb cauliflower florets
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
1/2 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup fresh baby spinach
- Preheat oven to 400°F. 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.
- Remove crust from oven. Increase oven temperature to 450°F. Top cauliflower crust with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, spinach, remaining 2 tablespoons basil and black pepper to taste. Bake for 7 minutes, or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
