Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I have attempted yet another Pinterest recipe.  I was searching through the "pins," and came across a pizza recipe that uses CAULIFLOWER, instead of pizza dough.

To begin with, you will need:

  • Half of a large cauliflower
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup mozarella cheese, thinly shredded
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic (dry or fresh)
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt
  • 1/2 c tomato-basil marinara or pizza sauce
  • 1/2 c mozarella cheese, thinly shredded
  • Canadian bacon, sliced
  • 1/2 c pineapple tidbits
*PLEASE NOTE:  You can use any kind of sauce and toppings.  I enjoy Hawaiian pizza, so opted to make it this way.

Grate the cauliflower with the box grater, using the big holes, until you have approximately 2 cups.
Microwave the cauliflower for 8 minutes to dry it out.
Next, add the egg, cheese and spices.  Mix together.
Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
Spray a 9" round pizza pan or cookie sheet with nonstick spray.

Press the cauliflower mixture onto the pan (as above).
Spray top of "crust" with nonstick spray.
Heat in oven for 10-15 minutes or golden brown.
Add sauce and 1/4 cup of shredded cheese.
Then, top with Canadian bacon and pineapple.
Finally, top the pizza with the remaining cheese.
Set oven to broil, and put pizza under broiler for 3-4 minutes (or until cheese melts).
