Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Ingredients

1 medium head of cauliflower or 5-6 cups of store bought cauliflower rice
1 egg, large
1 tsp Italian seasoning (dried oregano or basil)
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan or Mozzarella cheese, grated/shredded
1 tablespoon Nova Pure Hydrolysed Collagen Powder
Cooking spray

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C and line baking sheet with baking paper or sufficient amount of cooking spray.

Rinse cauliflower, remove the outer leaves, separate into florets and chop into smaller pieces. Process in a food processor in 2 batches, until “rice” texture forms (skip if using store-bought “rice”). Transfer cauliflower rice on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 mins.

Remove cooked cauliflower rice from the oven, transfer to a bowl lined with a double/triple layered linen towel, and let cool for 5 minutes. Then squeeze the liquid out of the ball as hard as you can. Be patient and do this a few times until barely any liquid comes out.

Increase oven temperature to 220 degrees C. In a medium mixing bowl whisk the egg with dried herbs, salt and pepper and collagen powder for 10 seconds. Add cheese and squeezed cauliflower; mix very well with spatula until combined.

Line same baking sheet with new parchment paper or silicone mat (just make sure to scrape off any bits of cauliflower) and spray with cooking spray. Transfer cauliflower pizza dough in the middle and flatten with your hands until thin pizza crust forms.

Bake for 20 minutes, carefully flip with spatula and bake for a few more minutes.

Top cauliflower pizza base with your favourite toppings and bake again until cheese on top turns golden brown.

Slice and enjoy.
