Cauliflower Crust Pizza

This was up there as one of the best things I have ever cooked. M and I had been seriously missing Sunday Night Pizza and were about to cheat and order some in. And then I remembered cauliflower crust. Add our favorite toppings and…VOILA!

The crust:

  • One head of cauliflower
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Handful of shredded mozzarella
  • Tspn of oregano
  • 3 tablespoons of ground flax seed

Preheat oven to 450. Cut florets off of the cauliflower and run through cuisinart until riced. Move to bowl. Add flax, oregano and cheese. Add two beaten eggs and mix well.

Put parchment paper in cookie sheet and fold over edges (make sure there is enough hanging over the edge to lift it later). Spray with cookie spray. Pour mixture onto sheet and distribute evenly. Press down all over. Put into oven and cook for 20 minutes or until browned all over and pulling away from edge. Remove and set aside (still in pan). Keep oven on.

Topping:

  • Chopped rotisserie chicken
  • Frozen spinach
  • Marinara sauce
  • Rest of mozzarella

While crust is cooking, chop rotisserie chicken into 1x2cm pieces. prepare chopped spinach by adding 1/4 cup water in pot, letting it boil, warming spinach, and drain by squeezing spinach thoroughly.

When crust comes out, spoon some warm marinara sauce onto the crust (I kept my sauce thin but up to you). Add chopped chicken throughout. Then spinach. Then mozz. Put it back in the oven, turn on the oven light and keep an eye on it and cook until mozzarella is golden and bubbly.

Remove from oven and transfer entire pizza using parchment paper. Cut and serve. The crust held up well enough to be held to eat.
