Ingredients
  • 1 head cauliflower, stem removed
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • Sliced bell peppers and onion, for topping
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until fine. Line a steamer basket with a kitchen towel (not terrycloth); set in a saucepan with 2 inches simmering water. Add the cauliflower, cover and cook 5 minutes. Drain well, then wring dry in the towel to get out all the moisture. Let cool.

  • In a bowl, combine the cauliflower with 1/2 cup mozzarella, the parmesan, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, the garlic powder and eggs. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet and spread into a 10-inch circle to make a pizza crust. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes.

  • Spread the marinara sauce on the crust; top with bell peppers and onion and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella. Return to the oven and bake an additional 10 minutes.
