cauliflower-crust pizza

you will need: mixing bowl, saran wrap, fork, paper towels, wax paper, cookie sheet with edge
yields 4 servings

2 heads cauliflower
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan
1 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoon parsley
1 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup green pepper, diced
1/2 cup slice mushrooms
pepperoni or cooked hamburger


preheat oven to 450 degrees.

break cauliflower off the head into a microwavable bowl. cover with saran wrap and microwave 5 minutes.

allow to cool and mash the cauliflower into small pieces (the size of rice) with a fork (can also use a cheese grater). set on a paper towl and 'dry' cauliflower. place back into bowl.

mix cauliflower, cheese, egg.

place wax paper on cookie sheet (it WILL stick otherwise) and press mixture into flat "crust". sprinkle with spices. cook for 20-25 minutes (or until edges are dark golden brown).

remove from heat. add sauce and toppings. place under broiler until cheese is melted.
