Ingredients

For the Cauliflower Bread Pizza Slices

For “Pizza” style topping

Instructions

  1. Wash and cut the florets from the stem of the cauliflower and pat dry.
  2. Using a grater or ricer, grate only the florets into a bowl – discard the stems.
  3. When all the cauliflower is grated or riced, place in a bowl or a large freezer bag (do NOT add water) and cook for 3-5 minutes in the microwave.
  4. Remove cauliflower from microwave and place on a clean cloth towel, roll up the towel and squeeze the water from the cauliflower. Shake off the cauliflower onto a paper towel lined sheet pan and occasionally give it a stir. (I placed it on top of the stove for at least an hour; the heat from the oven helps to dry the cauliflower).
  5. When the cauliflower is dried, add it to a bowl.
  6. Next add in the beaten egg, mozzarella, herbs/seasonings and salt and pepper mixing well with a whisk.
  7. On a parchment lined pan spread out the mixture in a thin layer to form a triangle (mine was about 14 x 7 which will vary based on the size of the cauliflower)
  8. Bake in a 400 degree oven for approximately 25 minutes, until it is browned and firm.

For “Pizza” style topping.

  1. Remove from the oven and spread with marinara sauce and sprinkle with the grated cheese and shredded mozzarella.
  2. Place in a 425 degree oven for 5-8 minutes until the cheeses melt in with the sauce.
  3. Remove from the oven & let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Carefully remove to a plate and cut into slices. Serve with additional marinara sauce for dipping.

Notes

The drying time takes a while. Planning ahead will make this well worth the drying time. After making this recipe many times, I most often rice the cauliflower in the morning which allows plenty of time for the riced cauliflower to dry.
