Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce

Preheat oven toΒ 425ΒΊF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cook for about 7-8 minutes. Set aside and let cool.

In the meantime, cut tomato into thin slices and remove basil leaves from stems.

Once cauliflower is cool, mix in egg, 1 cup mozzarella, parmesean and garlic powder. Transfer mixture to your baking sheet and pat into 10 inch round. Brush top of Crust lightly with olive oil. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
