  • 1 head medium (5-6" dia.) cauliflower
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon basil, dried
  • 3 oz chia seeds
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup spaghetti or marinara sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Wash and clean the cauliflower and cut it into chunks, being sure to remove the core.  
  • Place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse it until it’s 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 it to steam for 4-5 minutes. Watch it close so that it doesn't boil over!
  • Use a fine mesh strainer to drain the cauliflower. Allow it to cool for a few minutes, then place the cauliflower in a clean dish towel and squeeze as hard as you can to remove any excess water. 
  • Once the cauliflower rice is drained really well, place it into a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1 egg slightly beaten, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried basil, chia seeds, garlic powder and salt. Stir the mixture well.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it 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.
  • Place in the oven for 30 minutes, or even longer until the crust is golden brown and firm.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and top the crust with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.  
  • Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 7-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Cut into “breadsticks” and serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
