Ingredients

    For Crust:
    3 cups very finely grated cauliflower (about 1 medium head)
    1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
    1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
    1 Tablespoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    6 Tablespoons liquid egg white

    Pizza Toppings:
    17 slices, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni
    1 cup Prego Spaghetti Sauce, Original
    1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
    1/2 cup finely shredded Pamesan cheese

Tips

The thinner you make the crust, the less "cauliflower aftertaste" you have. If the crust is crispy and covered completely with sauce and cheese, the fact that this has a cauliflower crust is nearly indistinguishable. You can make any of your favorite pizzas this way!


Directions

For Crust:
1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Put cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl, cover loosely with a paper towel and microwave for 7-8 minutes (cauliflower will appear translucent). Let cool completely.
3. Mix cauliflower, liquid egg whites, cheeses, garlic powder, and salt. Make sure the egg whites are well-distributed in mixture.
2. Turn crust mixture onto nonstick pizza pan. Pat into a 10-12" round. Press firmly, cleaning up edges, and make the crust as thin as you possibly can.
4. Bake crust for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown.
5. Remove from oven and let cool.
6. Before adding pizza toppings, loosen the edges of crust with a spatula, moving spatula underneath crust until all of crust is loose.

To complete pizza:
1. Reduce oven to 350 degrees.
2. Make sure crust is in the center of pizza pan.
3. Spread 1 cup Prego spaghetti sauce onto crust using the back of a large spoon. Make sure crust has sauce, even out to the edges.
4. Sprinkle 1 cup mozzarella and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese evenly across pizza crust.
5. Top with turkey pepperoni.
6. Return to oven and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and pepperoni is crisp.
7. Cool slightly on rack. Cut into 8 slices.
