Crispy Cauliflower Pizza (low-carb, high protein, high fiber, gluten-free)

A delicious tasting low-carb Crispy Cauliflower Pizza. Make sure you use a good quality sauce to get excellent results. Cauliflower is an excellent source of Vitamin C, Folate, a very good source of Fiber and Omega-3 Fats, and a good source of Protein. Mozzarella Cheese is an excellent source of Calcium and Protein, however should be eaten in moderation due to its high saturated fat content. Basil is a good source of Folate, Iron and Vitamins A and C. Rao's Marinara Sauce is a good source of Vitamin C.

Ingredients
  

  • <b>for the crust</b>
  • Trader Joe’s Rice Cauliflower – 1-16 oz. packet, microwave and squeeze out moisture
  • Dried Oregano – 1/2 tsp
  • Italian Seasoning – 1/2 tsp
  • Garlic Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Red Crushed Pepper Flakes – 1/2 tsp

  • Grated Parmesan – 1/2 cup
  • Organic Egg – 1
  • <br></br>
  • <b>toppings</b>
  • Rao’s Marinara Sauce – about 1/2 cup, you may need more.
  • Mozzarella Cheese – about 1/2 cup, more or less.
  • Fresh Basil – to taste
  • Dried Oregano – to taste

Instructions
 

  • I used Trader Joe's Cauliflower Rice.
  • Dump the cauliflower rice into a big bowl. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower is cooling, preheat the oven at 450 degrees.
  • Once the cauliflower is cool, transfer the cauliflower to a kitchen cloth and squeeze out all the moisture. You may have to do this in 3 batches.
  • This is what you should have.
  • Add all the spices (oregano, Italian seasoning, garlic, red crushed pepper, black peper and salt) and parmesan.
  • Add egg. Mix well until all the ingredients are well-combined.
  • Lightly coat a 10" cast-iron skillet with Olive Oil spray. Add the cauliflower to the cast-iron skillet. Spread and pat down the cauliflower.
  • Into the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Crust is ready. See it's crispy!
  • Once done, add your favorite past sauce (I love Rao's Marinara) to the cauliflower crust. Don't overdo it.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese.
  • And now fresh basil.
  • Into the oven. Broil for 3-4 minutes - watch this so the pizza doesn't burn.
  • Done! You can eat the pizza right away, or wait about 5 minutes and then serve.
  • You should be able to hold a slice of pizza up once it's slightly cool. :)
