NO MORE SOGGY, Mush pizza! This one you can actually pick up with your hand! For an added KICK, I used spicy red pepper sauce instead of regular tomato sauce. This is how it’s done:

HOW

Prehead oven at 425-450deg.

The secret: Extract all excess water! 1/2-1 cup is not uncommon moisture from riced cauliflower (that means you boiled it until tender and either “riced” with a grater or pulsed coarsely in a food processor so that it resembles rice) and then, using a strainer, cheese cloth or paper towel squeeze all excess moisture OUT! Make sure it is dry! This is the secret to the crispy crust and too much moisture will cause crust to fall apart.

Add all the ingredients to it and mix with with a wooden spoon.
Pat down over an non stick sprayed pizza pan or cookie sheet and place in oven at 450deg for about 15-20 min or until it starts to brown. Take it out, spread sauce and pesto and Arrange your ingredients over the top and make it your own. May leave out sauce and make white pizza variation instead and it will still be delicious!

Return to oven under broiler on high for 2-3 minutes. That’s it!! I hope you love it!

ENJOY!
