Low-carb diets are diets that reduce the consumption of carbohydrates. Those carbohydrates are replaced with food containing high percentages of fat and proteins.
1 medium cauliflower
¼ cup grated Parmesan
¼ teaspoon salt
1 /4 cup mozzarella cheese
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup of marinara sauce
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon minced basil
Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse it using a food processor until it breaks down into fine pieces.
Microwave the pieces for 4-5 minutes. Allow it to cool for at least 4 to 5 minutes.
Wrap the cauliflower in a kitchen towel and squeeze the liquid and the moisture out of it. This is the secret to a non-soggy crust.
In a bowl, combine Parmesan, oregano, mozzarella cheese, salt, eggs, basil and garlic powder with the cauliflower. Transfer the mixture in to the lightly greased pizza pan with the parchment paper, in a shape of a pizza crust. Bake for 20 minutes.
After the crust turns golden, remove the pan from the oven and add in your desired toppings and bake for extra 10 minutes.
Marinara sauce and cheese can be used as toppings for a simple margarita pizza.
Tip: Keep the toppings and sauces minimal, so that it will not re-hydrate the crust.
