Ingredients
  • 1 small head of cauliflower, roughly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Place the cauliflower in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until all the cauliflower is processed so that it looks like snow or couscous.
  3. Put processed cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 5 minutes. Taste cauliflower to make sure it’s tender and thoroughly cooked.
  4. Place the cooked cauliflower in a clean dish towel. Squeeze the cauliflower forcing the water to drip out. This will take a little muscle, but keep squeezing until all of the water is out and cauliflower is very dry and clumps together.
  5. Mix the egg, cheese, salt, pepper and oregano with the drained cauliflower. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  6. Form the cauliflower mixture into a ball. Spray a piece of aluminum foil or parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Press the cauliflower mixture into a circular crust about ¼″ thick. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust is golden brown on the sides and top.
  8. Remove from oven and top with sauce, cheese and your favorite toppings! Bake for another 3-5 minutes or until toppings are warmed through and cheese is melted!
