Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Making pizza at home is a fun activity to get everyone involved in the kitchen — plus you can control what toppings you want and how much sauce and cheese your pizza will have. Another benefit is for those that are gluten intolerant or who are trying to avoid carbs, pizza is no longer off limits since you can make alternatives such as this recipe with cauliflower crust.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Ingredients:

> nonstick spray
> 2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about half of a large head)
> 3 tablespoons egg whites
> 1 1/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
> salt and pepper
> 1/4 cup tomato sauce
> toppings (roasted chickpeas, zucchini, mushrooms, kale, squash, etc.)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425°, and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Grate the cauliflower using a box grater, or chop to create the same effect. Place in a large bowl and microwave for seven minutes, or until soft. Remove from the microwave and let cool.

Add the egg whites and 1 cup mozzarella, and season with salt and pepper. Once combined, pat into a 10-inch round on the prepared baking sheet. Spray lightly with nonstick spray, and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden.

Top the pizza with the sauce, remaining mozzarella and toppings. Bake another 10 minutes, until melted and bubbly.

Makes 4 servings.
