No matter how you slice it, cauliflower pizza crust will satisfy your kids’ deepest deep dish desires.

INGREDIENTS

• 1 head cauliflower
• ¼ cup low-fat Parmesan cheese (finely grated)
• 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
• 1 large egg
• 1 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese (finely grated)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Break up the cauliflower into florets and place in a food processor. Pulse the cauliflower until it becomes a fine powder, about 10, 2-second pulses. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl and heat covered until soft, 4-6 minutes. Once cooled, place in a clean towel to wring out the moisture.

In a large bowl, mix together the cauliflower, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, egg, and mozzarella. Place the mixture onto a baking sheet and gently press into a 10-inch round, baking for 12-15 minutes.

Top the crust with low-sodium pizza sauce and your favorite healthy toppings (bonus points for more veggies!).

Bake for another 10 minutes.
