Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Mine didn’t hold together well, but maybe I didn’t get enough water out.


Separate a head of cauliflower into flowerets and rinse. Chop in food processor until it is a rice-like consistency. Place in bowl and microwave 8 minutes. Absorb the moisture with cheese cloth or a linen towel. Squeeze all the moisture out of the cauliflower. Add 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning; combine well. Shape into flat circle on pizza pan. Bake at 350* for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake until cheese is melted. This makes one small pizza.
