Cauliflower Crust Pizza

If you know me, you know I'd do just about anything for cheese. And really, anything is an acceptable vessel for cheese transportation into my mouth. This is why I could never be vegan for more than one meal.

i don't know what this is, but i want it. source
My BFFFFFFFforever Ruchipants lives in NYC by a huge cheese shop, which is one reason I shouldn't ever go visit her. We'd never leave the cheese shop. 

Problem is, cheese usually pairs super well with straight-up-bad-for-you-no-nutrition carbs. Like cheese and crackers. Mac and cheese. Grilled cheese. Pizza. Pizza. PIZZA.

No no no no NO. You silly little white bread nutrition-less carbs aren't stopping me from eating pizza. 

Another problem with pizza is that no matter where you get it, you're never going to find a slice for less than 6 WW P+. Now for those of you with bodies that aren't soft and round (i mean those of you with self-control), I must explain that 6 points is a lot. That's like, a 1/4th-1/5th of my day. And come on, WHO just eats one piece of pizza. 

So I present to you: white-nutritionless-carb-less pizza that is TWO points per slice. You're welcome.

Cauliflower Pizza
2 WW P+ per slice
Makes 2 8-slice pizzas

  • Crust
    • 1 head of cauliflower
    • 2 eggs
    • 3/4 c. light mexican blend shredded cheese
    • 3/4 c. light shredded mozzarella
    • 2 tsp dried oregano
    • 1 tsp dried basil
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp onion powder
    • 1 tsp salt

  • Toppings
    • 1 cup marinara or pizza sauce 
    • 1 cup shredded light mozzarella
    • your favorite pizza veggies
    • canadian bacon if you so desire

  • Preheat oven to 450F
  • Rice or grate the raw cauliflower into a large microwave safe bowl
    • I used a cheese grater and it worked great

  • Microwave cauliflower on high for 8 minutes

  • Remove from microwave and let cool, stirring occasionally to assist in the cooling process
  • After 10 minutes, add all other crust ingredients to the bowl and mix well

  • On two cooking sheets sprayed with cooking spray, divide cauliflower mixture evenly
  • Form into 12" or so circle
  • Bake for 10 minutes, switch the pans, and bake another ten (unless you have a really reliable oven and can do this without switching the pans. Good for you. )
i have white balance problems. oops.
  • Remove crusts from oven, top with sauce, cheese, and veggies
  • Bake for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melty and toppings are hot
  • Slice with a pizza cutter or knife and serve! 

Pair two slices of this with a big caesar salad and you won't be missing that bread.  TWO POINTS each!
