Pizza can be so heavy and filling at times, yes, even the better-for-you gluten-free kind. So if you are craving a pizza and want a lighter option, this is your answer. Cauliflower pizza is actually quite easy to make and while it doesn’t quite taste like a slice off the NYC streets, it can fill that craving for pizza and tastes absolutely delicious.
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and process until "rice" texture. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove cauliflower from the oven and place into a cheesecloth. Squeeze out all excess liquid from the cauliflower. Once all liquid is extracted from the cauliflower, place in a large bowl and add eggs, Parmesan cheese, and salt. Mix to combine and work into a dough. Transfer dough to a pizza stone or parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten with your hands until a thin, round crust is formed. Bake for 15 minutes then remove from oven and top with the desired toppings.
