Flourless Dough Pizza! Low Carb and Guilt Free!

A healthy and guilt free pizza that tastes just as good as normal pizza! Just without the unhealthy carbs from the flour and unnecessary simple carbohydrates. Instead replace it with cauliflower, an excellent source of vitamin c and vitamin k! A great way to enjoy a classic pig out meal by making this much healthier version :)  

-Half a head of cauliflower
-Tomato sauce (For an even healthier version, dice up some tomatoes instead and season it with basil and oregano)
- Mozzarella Cheese (Any kind you prefer,. low fat, whole milk, etc.)
- 1 egg
- Bail & Oregano
- Black Pepper and Salt 

Cut the cauliflower into small heads like this

Use a food processor or grater to create this texture for the cauliflower

Microwave the cauliflower for 6-7 min or lower. Just until it's mushy and soft

Add the cheese in first about 1/4 of a cup. Just add enough to combine the cauliflower. This really isn't for taste, so you should use less cheese if you can. Save the additional you can add for the topping! 

Spread it out onto a round pan and make sure to spray it with non sticking spray first! 

Bake in the oven at 425F just until the sides are crispy and golden

Add the tomato sauce and cheese. There really isn't any specified amount of tomato sauce, just enough to cover the middle of it! If you really want to hide the taste of the cauliflower add more tomato sauce. Try to always go light on the cheese, as cheese contains a lot of fat. 
Sprinkle on basil, oregano, salt, and pepper
After that pop it back into the oven at 425F for 5 min until the cheese melts into an ooey gooey texture

This tasted so good! Even my brother came back for seconds! Again it's not exactly like pizza dough, but it doesn't taste terrible at all. Definitely try it out and let me know if you enjoyed it! This is all part of my new year's resolution to eat healthier. How are you guys doing with you new year's resolutions?
