Number of Servings: 4


    12 ounces cauliflower florets, fresh or frozen
    1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Italian blend cheese
    2 teaspoons Italian herb blend
    pinch cayenne pepper
    1 egg white, beaten


You'll use the bottom of two sheet pans for this recipe. Though it sounds weird, this makes it easier to remove the crusts from the pan.


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Flip over two baking sheets so the bottom faces up. Coat with cooking spray. (You can also use two pizza stones.)

Cook the cauliflower with 1/2 cup water until tender, either on the stovetop in a covered saucepan or in the microwave.

Drain any excess water and allow the cauliflower to cool slightly.

Finely chop the cauliflower (or use a box grater or ricer).

In a medium bowl, combine the chopped or grated cauliflower with the cheese, herbs and cayenne pepper. Stir in the egg white.

Divide the "dough" in half and place each portion on a prepared baking sheet.

Use a large spoon to flatten the "dough" into an 8-inch circle.

Bake on the top oven racks for 15-17 minutes.

Top as desired (calories not included) and bake until toppings have cooked through.

Serving Size: Makes 2 eight-inch pizza crusts, 4 wedges per pizza, 2 wedges per serving

    Tip w/ the chopping: Food processor. Then just add the cheese and stuff and give it a couple spins with the blade, and add the egg white in a couple sections, and give it a couple more spins. The finer the chop, the better it seems to hold together.

    Also, don't ignore the "split in half" thing.

    Tip: after draining the water, put in a dishtowel and squeeze out the remaining water (about 1 cup of water will be squeezed out).

    It will make it crispier (like a cracker). We enjoy eating this without the toppings. Its is like a cracker and goes really well with wine!
