  • 6 ounce water
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

For the Pizza 

  • 2 cups uncooked frozen cauliflower

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup turkey pepperoni

 Directions 

  1. Mix all sauce ingredients in a medium size bowl using a whisk or spoon. Refrigerate sauce for 10-15 minutes before using to allow ingredients to blend.

  3. While sauce is in the fridge, microwave cauliflower for 8-10 minutes until cooked through.
  4. Place cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until it is like the consistency of rice.
  5. Squeeze out the cauliflower liquid as much as you can. The cauliflower should be dry.
  6. Transfer cauliflower to a bowl, add 1 cup of Mozzarella and one egg — mix well.
  7. Add oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper to cauliflower and cheese mixture.
  8. Place a piece of parchment paper onto a baking sheet.
  9. Heavily coat parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray.
  10. Spread cauliflower onto parchment paper. Make sure to spread the cauliflower mixture as thin as possible.
  11. Bake in the oven for 20-22 minutes until the dough is golden brown and bubbly.
  12. Remove crust from the oven and turn oven onto Broil.
  13. Spread sauce over crust, sprinkle 1 cup of remaining Mozzarella cheese over pizza top, cover with turkey pepperoni and spinach.
  14. Place baking sheet back in the oven under the broiler and broil for 3-5 minutes.

Enjoy!
