Scale

Ingredients

Crust – Makes a 10 inch crust

2 cups rice cauliflower, fresh or frozen

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

2 eggs

2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

1 clove garlic, minced

Toppings:

1/4 cup Sweet Chili Sauce, plus more for serving if desired

1 cup broccoli in very small florets, cooked for 1 minute in the microwave

2 cups cooked chicken, cup into bite size pieces

1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided

2 green onions, sliced thin

2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped


Instructions

Crust:

Microwave riced cauliflower for 4 minutes minutes you do not need to add water. Transfer cooked riced cauliflower to a fine mesh strainer lined with cheese cloth and allow to drain. When cool enough to handle wrap the sides of the cheesecloth around the cauliflower and squeeze out excess water. This step is very important, the dryer the better.

In a medium bowl whisk eggs, garlic, seasoning, and parmesan cheese. Stir in dried cauliflower and mix well. 

Place a sheet of parchment paper on a pizza stone or baking sheet. If you have a pizza stone I have found this works best.

Place you cauliflower dough on parchment paper and press into a 10 inch circle. Do not press too thin, it is easy to create hole.

Bake dough in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until nicely golden brown.

To make the pizza:

After removing cauliflower crust from the oven, sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese on the crust. Drizzle sweet chili sauce over cheese, then top with broccoli, chicken, and remaining mozzarella cheese.

Return to 450* degree oven for 5 – 10 minutes and bake until cheese has melted and pizza is heated through. Place under the broiler for a few minutes if like a browner cheese. 

Garnish pizza with green onions, cilantro and extra sweet chili sauce.
