Cauliflower Pizza Crust

THERE SHE IS!!!!  My very first 100% Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza Crust!  Sorry about the hazy pic, I don't know if it was the camera on my phone, the steam from just being pulled from the oven,the lighting in my kitchen or a combination of them all, but if you click on the pick to enlarge you can see that it turned out PERFECT!!!  Honestly, I surprised myself.  When you make the dough it doesn't look like it should turn out this beautiful.  I haven't "officially" eaten it yet because I made it in advance so I can just throw the toppings on tonight after work and pop it into the oven.  But I DID sneak me a little edge and it is SOOOOO YUMMY!!!  I can't wait until the pizza is done with all the yummy toppings I got for it.  I even picked up some turkey pepperoni!  So here is how this pizza crust is made; you won't believe how easy it is!!!

Florets from on small head of cauliflower
1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
3 eggs
1/2 tsp Italian herb seasoning
Parchment Paper

Process cauliflower in food processor so it appears the consistency of ground almonds (pulsing for approx. 1 minute).  You want to be sure it is as fine as the food processor will make it.  In a large bowl combine all ingredients.  Spread out on a parchment paper lined pizza tray, stone or cookie sheet until the crust is thin and even (mine was about 1/4" and feel free to use your hands) and bake in a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Flip the crust over and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes until both sides are golden.

To Make The Pizza

I'm topping mine with marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, bell peppers, mushrooms, onion and pepperoni.  Once I've put all the toppings on, I will pop it into the oven on broil until the cheese is melted and my pizza looks like a pizza (approximately 6-10 minutes).  Stay tuned for the finished product!!!
