Pizza is one of my personal favorites. This pizza is FANTASTICO!! Its actually easier than making your own pizza dough. By using the tubes of spices or fresh herbs that you can pick up in your supermarket, the cauliflower really does become dough.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Pizza should be a food group for me, and I love that I can now have a healthier version! The spices and cheese add so much flavor, you wouldn't know you're eating cauliflower. The crust gets really crisp and topped with the peppers, onions and cheeses, it's yummy!

To get the crust crisp, make sure to squeeze out the water really well (took me a few times).

Ingredients

1
cauliflower head
1/2 tsp
pureed garlic paste or 5 cloves minced
1/2 tsp
crushed red chili pepper paste
2-3
large/extra large egg whites
1 c
mozzarella shredded
1/2 c
finely shredded Parmesan reggiano cheese

PEPPER AND ONION SAUTE

1
red bell pepper
1
medium onion, finely diced
1
olive oil, lightly

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat your oven to 450. Rice cauliflower. This means put freshly washed cauliflower that you have cut into florets into food processor. Pulse until it looks like a grain. Place in a microwave safe dish and nuke for 8 minutes. I always spread it out on a dishtowel when it's done to cool and then I put it back into center and wring out the excess water. I think this really helps it become crusty.
2
Dice onions and peppers and sauté with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
3
Take cauliflower, egg whites spices, cheeses and mix well with clean DRY hands. Take a sheet of parchment paper and turn over a baking sheet or chopping board. You want to be able to slide it onto the pizza stone. Lightly oil and sprinkle corn meal.
4
With a big serving spoon dump a little cauliflower at a time until you can press it into a circle. Push edges up until it resembles the crust of a pizza. It should be no more than 1/4 inch thick. Slide onto pizza stone. Bake until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place back on upside down baking sheet or board.
5
Add onion and pepper mixture and spread out thinly. Top with more Parmesan and mozzarella. Bake another ten minutes. until bubbly. Keep in mind, oven temperatures vary.
