Cauliflower Pizza Crust 
Ingredients for Crust:
1 head cauliflower, large stalk removed
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated parmigiano cheese
1 pinch kosher salt
1 large egg, beaten
Ingredients for Toppings:
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
½ cup organic tomato sauce
1 cup organic shredded mozzarella
4 leaves fresh organic basil
 
Directions:
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Separate the cauliflower into florets and steam in a steam basket until tender but not soggy
  3. Pulse in food processor until fine
  4. Squeeze EVERY drop of water you can out of the cauliflower using a cheese cloth. This process can take 5-10 minutes and is VERY important!
  5. In a bowl combine the cauliflower, mozzarella, eggs, salt and parmigiano and mix until blended.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes until crust is lightly brown and then flip and cook for an additional 10 minutes
  7. Add toppings and return to oven for 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted
