Ingredients

1 c
cauliflower, cooked and riced
1 large
egg
1 c
mozarella shredded
1/2 tsp
fennel
1 tsp
oregano
2 tsp
parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit.
2
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
3
In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Press evenly on the pan. Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley.
4
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe).
5
Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese.
Place under a broiler (grill for the Europeans) at high heat just until cheese is melted.

Notes:
*I use frozen cauliflower prepared according to package directions. After cooked and slightly cooled, I shred cauliflower with a cheese grater, and then measure for the recipe. (Don’t pack down the cup with cauliflower. Just fill it with a spoon or the cup itself.)
** The pizza sauce I use is Great Value Pizza sauce from Wal-Mart. At only 3 net carbs per quarter cup, you get a lot of punch for little carbohydrate pow.
*** You can try re-baking the pizza at 450 once you add toppings if desired, but the crust is not quite as crusty. There is a minimal difference, so see what works best for you.
