Cauliflower Crazybread!


There are so many recipes out there for cauliflower tots, pizza crusts, and breadsticks. After looking up several of them, I came up with my own version. This is thin like a pizza crust, but loaded with seasonings, slathered in melted butter, and roped with parmesan. I felt so guilty eating this until I remembered that there is not a single ounce of bread on the whole thing, and I was actually eating a serving of veggies!

Ingredients
Small head of cauliflower 
1/3 c grated Parmesan
1/2 c shredded mozzarella
1 egg
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs butter, melted

Directions
Cut the florets off the head of cauliflower and place into a food processor. Chop until the cauliflower is in very small "rice-sized" pieces. Place in bowl, season with salt and pepper, and microwave uncovered for 6-8 minutes, until the cauliflower is cooked. Do not add water; water will come out of the cauliflower as it cooks. Allow the cooked cauliflower to cool for 5 minutes. 

Preheat oven to 425. 

Place the cooled cauliflower in a towel and ring out as much water as you can. There will be quite a bit. The cauliflower needs to be as dry as possible to make the bread. 

Combine the cauliflower, cheeses, seasonings, and egg in a bowl to form a dough. Spread the dough onto a parchment-lined pizza pan. Shape into a flat circle. 

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Carefully, flip the cauliflower over using a second layer of parchment paper (I laid it over the cauliflower, picked up both top and bottom pieces, and flipped). Spread with melted butter and top with extra garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. 

Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
