Cauliflower Pizza Crust

You will need a food processor, parchment paper and cheese cloth.

1 head cauliflower - trimmed into florets
1 egg (flax egg)
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (can omit)

Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a food processor - pulse cauliflower florets until finely chopped and resembling rice. Spread on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool enough to handle. Meanwhile line a bowl with a doubled-over layer of cheese cloth and increase oven temp to 450. Place the cooked cauliflower in the cheese cloth, grab all four corners -making a little pouch of cauliflower - and ring out as much excess water as you can. Squeeze and squeeze until you cant get any more water out.

Mix cauliflower with egg and cheese (I also added a little salt, pepper and onion powder) and press onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Make sure it's evenly spread and not too thin, especially on the edges.

Bake crust in 450 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove and top with whatever you like! Bake until cheese is melted.

*The cheese in the crust doesn't seem to make much difference so you can omit it if you want. The crust with the egg worked best of course but the flax egg crust held together surprisingly well. Just keep it a bit thicker and bake slightly longer.
