Cauliflower Crust Pizza with Spinach & Sausage

If you don’t crave pizza every now and then you’re lying…Unless you don’t live in America because there is just something about it that we all crave. Pizza as we all know isn’t the healthiest so I made this into a low-carb meal by making a cauliflower crust instead of a pizza dough. It’s almost too good to be healthy to be honest..and you can customize your own pizza to your own likings! Also, did I mention this is probably easier to make than a regular pizza?

Ingredients:
1 head of a small to medium cauliflower
1 egg
1/4 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup mozarella cheese (or cheddar)
1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp oregano (pinch with your fingers)
2 Tbsp tomato sauce
Mozzarela Cheese (I used a little less than 1/2 cup, but use as much as you desire)
Use your favorite toppings! I used a roasted garlic artichoke chicken sausage I got at Trader Joe’s.

Steps:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Cut off the florets and stem of cauliflower. Place in food processor until it looks almost powdery. Place cauliflower in a microwavable save bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. Let cool for another 2 minutes and add egg, breadbrumbs, cheeses, garlic powder, salt, pepper, basil, and oregano. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined and it has formed an almost dough consistency.

2. TIME TO BAKE! Line a baking sheet with a silicon mat or use parchment paper. Form cauliflower crust in a large round circle by pressing with your hands. If your hands are super sticky add more breadcrumbs to the dough. Bake for 15 minutes until crust is golden brown.

3. Now for the finale! When crust is fully cooked, add your tomato sauce, cheese, and your toppings. Bake for another 5 mintues until cheese is melted and there you go! You can definitely feel good about eating this and you get an even bigger benefit by getting all the nutritous vitamins from cauliflower! It’s a win-win meal 🙂
