- Yield 8 pizzas
1/3 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup pepperoni minis
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
For the cauliflower crust
1 head cauliflower, chopped
1 large egg
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
To make the cauliflower crust, add cauliflower to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely ground, yielding about 2-3 cups.*
Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover loosely and place into microwave for 4-5 minutes, or until softened; let cool.
Using a clean dish towel or cheese cloth, drain cauliflower completely, removing as much water as possible.
Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Stir in egg, mozzarella, Parmesan, basil, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Using an ice cream scoop, spread cauliflower mixture into a circle for each pizza and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden.
Top each cauliflower round with marinara, mozzarella and pepperoni minis. Place into oven and cook until the cheese has melted, about 3-4 minutes.
Serve immediately, sprinkled with basil, if desired.
