Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza

Looking for recipes with little carbs, I found one or pizza, but alas, I have made some changes... Here is my version.


For the Thin Crust:
2 1/2 cups of shredded cauliflower - I used my food processor(less mess)
1 pkg low fat cream cheese @ room temperature.
2 eggs
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Tomato Basil & Garlic Seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 c grated parmesan cheese

For the Sauce
1 can -15oz of tomato sauce
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic salt
1 c chopped spinach

Toppings I used (optional) or Use your favorite...
2 sm can of green chili-I don't like the watery substance they pack the green chili in, so I pour my chili into a strainer and rinse with water. (about 6 whole chopped)
3/4 c sliced mushrooms (chopped if you are trying to hide the taste & texture from the kids) Mushrooms have protein and many nutrients that are healthy.
1 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 pkg pepperoni

Optional Topping: Sauté the three ingredients below & use as a topping (nicely covers 1/2 of pizza)
1 medium onion sliced
1 lg tbl of minced onion
1 tsp olive oil


Preheat oven to 350˚F.
For the crust: in a small microwave safe bowl, microwave the cauliflower for 5 minutes, stir, microwave for another 3. Do not add water. While microwaving the cauliflower, mix with electric mixer in medium bowl: cream cheese, eggs, Mrs. Dash, pepper, & garlic powder. Stir in cauliflower and parmesan cheese. Pour into a Pam sprayed 9x13 glass cake pan. Cook in oven for 25 minutes or until to is lightly browned. Let it cool for 10 minutes before adding toppings. When crust is finished, increase temperature of the oven to 400˚F.

For sauce: In a small sauce pan over low-medium heat, add sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic salt & spinach. Once it starts to bubble, place on lowest heat setting & let simmer for 12 minutes stirring occasionally.

Once crust is cooled slightly, pour & spread sauce on top, add toppings, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, top with pepperoni. Place in oven for an additional 8 minutes or until cheese is melted.
