Ingredients
  

  • 2 pounds frozen cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup bread crumbs or rice crumbs
  • ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese or cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves minced garlic or ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions
 

  • Cook the cauliflower according to package directions and let it sit for a few minutes to cool. Using a potato masher, a fork, or a flat-bottomed glass, mash and break apart the florets until only small pieces remain.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and place a 12-inch circle of parchment paper in the center of a 14-inch round pizza tray. Brush it with the olive oil.
  • Working in batches, spoon the cauliflower into a nut milk bag and twist/squeeze it to extract as much water as possible. Transfer to a bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
  • Dump the mixture into the center of the pizza tray/parchment paper. Using wet hands to prevent sticking, press the mixture out to the edge of the parchment paper.
  • Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Using an offset spatula, loosen the crust from the parchment paper and slide it onto a 14-inch round pizza screen. Bake for 5-7 minutes more on the screen or until the crust is nicely browned.
  • Slide the crust back onto the pizza tray (minus the parchment paper) and layer on toppings of your choice. Bake in a 400-degree oven for 5-7 minutes more or until toppings are melted and/or heated through.
