Default Cauliflower Pizza

The original recipe came out way too mushy for me, more like a casserole type dish. I played around with it until I could actually get a crust that you could slice and pick up just like regular pizza.

Original Recipe
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1 egg
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp fennel
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley Toppings

pizza or alfredo sauce
mozzarella cheese
cooked meats

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Press evenly on the pan. Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe).
Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese.
Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted


***These are my versions and a pic of recipe 1 & 2 of the results***

Recipe 1
Oven at 450. Cooked on a pizza stone
Crust
1/2 cup egg white
1 cup cheese
1 cup plus another 1/2 cup (approx) riced cauliflower (barely cooked)
Italian spice

Toppings
2 serv. black olives
1/4 boca crumbles
Handful of diced onion

I did not add cheese to the top, It tasted cheesy enough to me.
I mixed everything together and just kept adding cauliflower until it was firm enough to form a crust on my pizza stone without any liquid.
When it looked done I flipped it over to cook the other side. When that side was done I added toppings and cooked for about 2 more minutes.

The whole pizza with the toppings came to
597 cals
19 carbs
25 fat
66 protein

It was firm enough to eat just like a regular pizza.

Recipe 2
Oven 450. Cooked in a pie dish
Crust
1 cup riced cauliflower
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 cup cheese
Spices

I riced the fresh, dry, raw cauliflower and did NOT cook it before I mixed it with the rest of the ingredients.

Recipe 3
2 packed cups raw riced cauliflower
1/2 cup cheese
1/8 cup "riced" onion
Spices
egg whites

I mixed everything except for the egg whites together. Then I added the egg little by little until I could kind of form a dough.



Another pic (I think this was one that I froze and cooked later)
