Ingredients & Directions:

Rice 2 cups of Cauliflower (use a hand grater or shred in a food processor) then place in a microwave safe bowl and cook 3 minutes uncovered. Stir. Cook 3 more minutes, uncovered. Remove from the microwave and stir to release heat.

Place 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil  in a small sauté pan with 3 cloves of minced Garlic (more if you want!). Sauté on medium heat about a minute until fragrant and add to the cauliflower.

Add 1/2 cup of reduced fat, shredded Mozzarella Cheese (more cheese is usually a good thing, however, try to keep the saturated fats to a minimum), 1 Egg (or even two), 1 Tbsp of Oregano, 1 Tbsp Basil paste, a pinch of Sea Salt and some Red Pepper Flakes!  Stir to combine.

 Scoop mixture into a pie plate and smear flat evenly about 1/2″ thick. Pull mixture away from the edges with a spoon.

Make individual pizzas with miniature casserole dishes. These can be made in advance and cooked later.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool 15 minutes.  Take a knife and scrape around the edges, then use a spatula to release the bottom of the crust from the dish. Cover the top with a baking sheet and flip the dough over. At this point, you could still refrigerate and eat later!

Add some more cheese on top (less is more!) What’s your preference? Feta. Parmesan. Gorgonzola. Bleu. Just some thoughts.

In this case, I added say 1/3 rd cup reduced fat Mozzarella, sliced Heirloom Tomatoes, crumbled up a Spinach Burger from last night with a lil more cheese on top!
