Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups cauliflower
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon good quality pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon basil chopped
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup Sargento Sharp Cheddar Finely Shredded
  • 8 pepperonis
  • 1/4 cup crimini mushrooms chopped
  • 1 tablespoons chopped leeks

Instructions

  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425ºF.
  • Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and add a splash of water. Cover. Microwave for 3 minutes or until tender. Allow to cool.
  • Place cauliflower in a high powered blender or food processor and pulse until fully chopped and in tiny pieces. It will almost be grated.
  • Add the egg, 1 1/4 cups mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and basil. Stir to combine all of the ingredients.
  • Pour the cauliflower mixture onto the baking sheet and form the shape of crust you want. Pat down to create a flat surface.
  • Lightly spray with cooking spray, then bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch.
  • Spoon on the sauce, followed by both types of cheeses, leeks, mushrooms, and pepperonis.
  • Bake for other 10 minutes until melty.
  • Enjoy!
