The toppings on this pizza are classic, but the cauliflower crust is unique—and low in calories and carbs! To make the crust, simply pulse the cauliflower in a food processor until it's rice-sized, then toss with mozzarella cheese, flour, eggs, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Spoon the "dough" onto a pan and make as many creative-looking shapes as you desire. The sauce features store-bought canned tomato sauce, pepperoni, and dried oregano, a satisfying combination that pleases all palates. After the pizza is heated through and the cheese is melted, top it off with fresh basil for even more color, crunch, and flavor.

Ingredients

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

cup(s)

Egg(s)

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

Basil

½ Tbsp, 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. 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.
