Recipe of the Week 1/11: Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Yields 6 servings. 

Ingredients 

1-1/2 heads cauliflower (about 1-1/2 pounds), chopped (about 6 cups) 

1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 

1 large eggs, lightly beaten 

1 teaspoon dried oregano 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 

Instructions 

Preheat oven to 425°. Working in batches, place cauliflower in food processor; process until finely ground. Transfer to a large microwave-safe bowl; repeat with remaining cauliflower. Microwave, covered, until cauliflower is tender, about 8 minutes. When cool enough to handle, squeeze dry; return to bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients until combined. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Press and shape cauliflower mixture into an 10-in. circle or 13x6-in. oval. 

Bake until edges are browned, 20-25 minutes. Top as desired; bake until toppings are heated through, 10-12 minutes longer.
