This cauliflower pizza crust is a great alternative to the cream cheese-heavy fathead version when you’re on a low-carb pizza hunt. Bake the crust and then add toppings of choice! We went with prosciutto and some spicy arugula. (Partnership with Panasonic)

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Step 2
Place the Cauliflower (1/2 head) in the food processor and pulse until finely ground.
Step 3
In a microwave-safe bowl, cook the cauliflower in the Panasonic Microwave Oven for 4 to 5 minutes, until soft. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel and let cool. Once cooled, squeeze the towel in order to wring out as much of the excess moisture as possible.
Step 4
In a bowl, mix the Cauliflower, Egg (1) , Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (1/2 cup) , Grated Parmesan Cheese (2 Tbsp) , and the Italian Seasoning (1 tsp) until combined.
Step 5
Transfer the dough to the baking sheet. Form it into a ½-inch thick circle (or desired shape) and bake for 15 minutes, until golden.
Step 6
Brush the crust with Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1/2 Tbsp) . Top with Marinara Sauce (2 Tbsp) , the remaining Mozzarella Cheese (1/2 cup) , and any toppings you want to bake. Bake for 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
Step 7
Meanwhile, toss the Arugula (2 cups) with the remaining Olive Oil (1/2 Tbsp) and season with a pinch of Salt (to taste) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 8
Remove the pizza from the oven and top with arugula, Prosciutto (4 slices) , and Parmesan Cheese (1 Tbsp) or other toppings of choice. Slice and serve. Cooking results may vary depending on microwave oven used.
