Total Time30 mins
- 1 cauliflower head (medium sized)
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup parmesan shredded
- ¼ cup mozzarella shredded
- ½ tsp dried thyme
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 cup low-carb marinara sauce
- 1 ½ cup mozzarella shredded
- 1 cup pepperoni slices
- 1 cup bell peppers sliced
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a small pizza pan with some parchment paper and set aside.
Cut cauliflower into florets and add to a food processor. Process until it resembles rice. Transfer to a microwave-safe dish and microwave for five minutes on high.
Remove the cauliflower from the microwave and cool to room temperature. Transfer to a kitchen towel and squeeze the liquid out of it. For the best results, give it some good old fashioned elbow grease and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
Transfer cauliflower to a bowl and add egg, Parmesan, mozzarella, dried thyme, dried oregano, and garlic powder. Using a kitchen spatula, mix the ingredients until a dough texture forms. Add to the prepared pan and shape the pizza crust.
Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top.
Remove the crust from the oven and optionally top with low-carb marinara, shredded mozzarella, pepperoni, and bell peppers.
Continue to bake for a couple of minutes more or until the mozzarella has completely melted.
