Cauliflower makes a wonderful crust for this pepperoni pie.

Ingredients

Olive oil cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Uncooked cauliflower

½ head(s), small, cut into florets (about 2 c)

Part-skim mozzarella cheese

1½ cup(s), shredded, divided

White all-purpose flour

cup(s)

Raw egg(s)

2 large

Fresh oregano

1 tsp(s), minced

Kosher salt

½ tsp(s)

Granulated garlic

½ tsp(s)

Black pepper

pinch, freshly grated

Canned tomato sauce

1 cup(s)

Small, thinly sliced turkey pepperoni

1½ oz, thinly sliced

Italian seasoning

½ tsp(s), or other dried herbs

Basil

½ tbsp(s), for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; coat with cooking spray.
  2. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor; process to consistency of rice and spoon into a large bowl. Add 1/2 c cheese, flour, eggs, oregano, salt, garlic and pepper; stir to combine. Spoon crust mixture into two 8-inch circles on prepared pan; smooth with a spoon to form an even layer (mold into a heart shape with your hands, if desired). Bake until medium brown on bottom, about 20 minutes; carefully flip over. Bake until evenly browned, 10 minutes more.
  3. Spoon 1/2 c sauce over each crust and sprinkle each with remaining 1/2 c cheese; top each with half of pepperoni. Sprinkle with seasoning and bake until heated through and cheese is melted (broil to brown cheese, if desired, about 5 minutes); garnish with fresh basil. Cut each pizza into 4 slices.
  4. Serving size: 2 slices
