cooking spray

2 spray(s)

uncooked cauliflower

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

shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1½ cup(s), divided

all-purpose flour



2 large

fresh oregano

1 tsp, minced

kosher salt

½ tsp

granulated garlic

½ tsp

black pepper

tsp, freshly grated

canned tomato sauce

1 cup(s)

small, thinly sliced turkey pepperoni

1½ oz, thinly sliced

Italian seasoning

½ tsp, or other dried herbs


½ Tbsp, for garnish


  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. Spoon into a large bowl; add remaining crust ingredients and 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
