  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C)

  2. Remove the stems and leaves from the cauliflower and chop it into chunks

  3. Pulse the cauliflower chunks in a food processor until it resembles rice

  4. Cook the cauliflower rice in a non-stick skillet over medium heat until it's dry

  5. Allow the cauliflower rice to cool, then mix in the egg, Parmesan, mozzarella, salt, and pepper

  6. Press the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, forming a pizza shape

  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden

  8. Add your toppings and bake for another 10 minutes


Storing Leftovers: If you have any leftover Cauliflower Power Pizza, simply place it in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. It should stay fresh for up to 3-4 days. To reheat, place it in the oven at 375°F until it's heated through. This will help maintain the crust's texture better than microwaving.
