Pulsing the raw cauliflower first without cooking it and then using a cheesecloth to remove any excess water cuts the baking time in half. This pizza tastes amazing!
1. Put chopped cauliflower in the food processor and pulse well until it turns into a paste. This will take about 2 minutes.
2. Put cauliflower paste into a sheet of cheesecloth and squeeze it over the sink until all of the liquid is out. Let it sit a few minutes inside the cheesecloth. You will squeeze again in a couple minutes.
3. In a small skillet add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add your minced garlic and saute about 2 minutes over medium heat. Set aside.
4. Squeeze your cauliflower again in the cheesecloth to remove any remaining liquid.
5. In a large bowl mix cauliflower paste with sauteed garlic, and all remaining crust ingredients. Make sure you mix well.
6. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray non-stick spray on a 12″ spring form pan (cheesecake pan). I also place parchment paper on the bottom and spray the paper with olive oil non-stick spray again just in case it sticks. Pour the crust mixture into the pan. Form an even layer on the bottom of the pan with cauliflower mixture. Pat down along all of the edges until it looks like a crust.
7. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or until golden brown and slightly firm to touch. Sides will be a darker shade of brown and that’s OK.
8. Remove from oven and take crust out of the spring form pan. Place your crust on a baking sheet and add pizza sauce and mozzarella. Bake for another 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with fresh tomatoes and basil. This is best served immediately!
