Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 a large head)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp basil leaves, I used dry
  • 1/2 tsp oregano leaves, I used dry
  • salt and pepper, as desired
  • 2/4 cup crushed tomatoes, canned
  • 1-2 cups Armstrong Monterey Jack with Jalapeno Cheese, grated
  • 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • fresh basil if desired, for topping
Instructions
  1. Line a pizza baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 400

  2. Using a grater, grate the cauliflower until you have 2.5 cups of cauliflower 

  3. Place in a large bowl and microwave covered for 3 minutes, stir and microwave again for another 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let cool. Use paper towel to squeeze/press out any moisture. The dryer it is, the crispier the crust will become, and it'll bake faster.  

  4. Mix the egg and the dried basil and oregano and your desired amount of salt and pepper into the cauliflower and stir to combine

  5. Dump the combined mixture onto the parchment paper and press to make a round crust. Spray the top with nonstick spray and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden. Bake time mostly depends on how much water you squeezed out of the microwaved cauliflower. 

  6. Once cooked, take the crust out of the oven and top the pizza with the tomato sauce, halved cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and grated cheese. 

  7. Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Enjoy!
