Ingredients

  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 2 ounce mozzarella cheese
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon basil, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

Serve With

  • 1 cup spaghetti or marinara sauce

Instructions

  • Wash and clean cauliflower; remove the florets from the bunch and discard the core.
  • Place the florets in a food processor and pulse until it is of a “rice” consistency.
  • In a large saucepan, heat one inch of water until it boils. Add in the cauliflower, cover with a lid, and allow to steam for 4-5 minutes. Watch closely so it does not boil over!
  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Use a fine mesh strainer to drain the steamed cauliflower. Allow it to cool for a few minutes, then place in a clean dish towel (or even a paper towel) and squeeze as hard as you can to remove any excess water; add to a large mixing bowl.
  • Grate the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
  • Add 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, egg (slightly beaten), oregano, basil, and garlic salt (or garlic powder and regular salt) to the cauliflower. Stir well to combine.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray.
  • Spoon the cauliflower mixture onto the pan and use your hands to form it into a 8 1/2 x 11-inch rectangle.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and firm.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  • Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 7-10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  • Cut into “breadsticks” and serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
