Low Carb and Gluten Free Pizza Crust
This is a recipe from Bodybuilding.com.
1 cup riced or grated cauliflower
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup non-fat Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheet with foil and spray generously with non stick spray. Rice the cauliflower florets in a food processor or grate manually. Microwave rice cauliflower for 8 minutes. Set aside. In another bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients and add riced cauliflower. Mix well. Pour mixture onto cookie sheet. It should be circular, like a pizza. Bake for 17-20 minutes. Once crust is done, top with your choice of vegetables and protein. Broil pizza for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted on top.

Okay, so here's what I did. My dh doesn't like tomatoes, so I omitted those. I didn't have Italian seasoning, so I used thyme, oregano and a little extra basil. The crust was very salty, so I would cut back on the salt or eliminate altogether. I did not use a circular pan. I just molded it into a circle in the middle of a rectangular cookie sheet. I ate it plain. It was that good!
Happy gluten-free and low-carb eating.
P.S. IT'S A GREAT WAY TO SNEAK IN VEGGIES YOUR KIDS WOULDN'T OTHERWISE EAT!
