Forget spending extra money on the pre-made ones.  Next time check the label of those pizza crusts and see what’s in them.  Here you can make your own and control the ingredients!

Directions:

  • Mince cauliflower in a food processor until you have a rice like consistency (small grains)
  • Cook cauliflower in microwave for 8 minutes
  • MOST IMPORTANT PART:  transfer cauliflower onto a cheese cloth or a tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.  SQUEEZE REALLY WELL, A FEW TIMES!
  • You should then be left with a cauliflower mash.  Transfer to a bowl
  • Mix all the remaining ingredients together (egg, seasoning, cheese)
  • Using your heads, flatten the cauliflower mixture on a lined parchment paper or silicon mat and spray the pan with cooking spray
  • Bake for 20 minutes, flip and bake for a few more minutes until crispy.
