Prep Time  :20 min

Cook Time  :35 min

Serves    :4

Difficulty   :Easy

Recipe Details
2 spray(s) cooking spray
1/2 head(s), large uncooked cauliflower, cut into florets (about 2 c)
1 1/2 cup(s) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
2/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
2 large egg(s)
1 tsp fresh oregano, minced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly grated
1 cup(s) canned tomato sauce
1 1/2 oz turkey pepperoni, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning, or other dried herbs
1/2 Tbsp basil, for garnish


Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; coat with cooking spray.

Place cauliflower florets in a food processor; process to consistency of rice and spoon into a large bowl. Add 1/2 c cheese, flour, eggs, oregano, salt, garlic and pepper; stir to combine. Spoon crust mixture into two 8-inch circles on prepared pan; smooth with a spoon to form an even layer (mold into a heart shape with your hands, if desired). Bake until medium brown on bottom, about 20 minutes; carefully flip over. Bake until evenly browned, 10 minutes more.
Spoon 1/2 c sauce over each crust and sprinkle each with remaining 1/2 c cheese; top each with half of pepperoni. Sprinkle with seasoning and bake until heated through and cheese is melted (broil to brown cheese, if desired, about 5 minutes); garnish with fresh basil. Cut each pizza into 4 slices.
Serving size: 2 slices
