Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Fully loaded Cauliflower Crust Pizza!
Mushrooms, peppers, jalapenos, ground beef, kalamata olives, and cheese.

I'm reposting this recipe and deleting the old one. This technique is much better than what I used to do. The difference here is that you're cooking the cauliflower for a few minutes in a pan and you're baking the crust on both sides. The inspiration for the new recipe came from the awesome Chef John. Please watch his video here, it's very entertaining.

Cauliflower Pizza crust:

1 medium sized head of cauliflower (will yield about 2 cups once processed)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 egg

-Preheat oven to 400
-To prepare crust, cut cauliflower into florets then finely chop it in food processor.
-Steam cauliflower in a pan with a splash of water for 6 minutes.
-Place in one of these or in tea towel and squeeze all the liquid out of it. I got at least 1 cup of liquid, 2 cups of finely ground cauliflower. Squeeeeeeeeze with all your might! :)
-Place cauliflower in a bowl. Add rest of ingredients and mix well with your hands.
-Spread mixture onto parchment paper like this:
It's about 8 inches in diameter

-Bake in 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown:

-Increase oven temperature to 450 while you top your pizza.
-FLIP THE CRUST OVER BEFORE ADDING TOPPINGS! Add toppings then bake for an additional 7 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.
