Ingredients

  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 3 ounce mozzarella cheese
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 large egg

Toppings

  • 8 jumbo black olives, canned
  • 1 cup, chopped bell pepper, green
  • 1/2 cup, pieces or slices mushrooms, white
  • 1 cup pizza sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Grease a pizza pan or use a pizza stone.
  • Chop cauliflower into florets. Add to a food processor and pulse until it becomes crumbly.  Put into a microwave safe bowl and cook in microwave for 2-3 minutes until tender.  Allow to cool on a clean dish towel.
  • Once cooled, squeeze out any excess moisture by wringing the cauliflower inside the towel.  Transfer cauliflower into a clean mixing bowl.
  • Grate the cheese; add 1/4 cup of the mozzarella, Parmesan, basil, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper into the bowl.  Toss to combine, and then add the egg. Stir until completely mixed together.
  • Place "dough" onto a greased pizza pan or pizza stone.  Shape into crust, making it thicker than you would for a regular pizza crust. Set aside. Place into oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden.
  • Slice olives, dice pepper and cut mushrooms into smaller pieces. Spread pizza sauce over crust and sprinkle with toppings and remaining cheese.
  • Place pizza back into oven and bake for 10 minutes. Allow to slightly cool before serving.
