Cauliflower Crust
  • 1 small or medium sized cauliflower
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup mozzarella or cheddar cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 6 stalks of asparagus
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 strips bacon
  • ¾ cup cheese (mozzarella, cheddar)
  • 3 tablespoons marinara sauce
  • ¼ cup Arugula/ baby kale
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and lightly grease a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place several stalks of asparagus onto the baking pan with minced garlic. Drizzle olive oil on top and lightly season with salt. Roast the asparagus for about 8-10 minutes until they appear tender. Remove the asparagus from the oven and set the asparagus aside for now.
  3. Now, line a 9 inch round pizza pan with parchment paper or lightly grease the surface with nonstick cooking spray. Set the pizza pan aside for now.
  4. Cut the cauliflowers into small florets. Place these florets into a food processor until the cauliflower becomes rice like, about 2 – 2 ½ cups of processed cauliflower florets
  5. Add the processed cauliflower florets into a large mixing bowl along with a beaten egg and mozzarella cheese. Mix until well combined and they appear dough like.
  6. Spread the cauliflower mixture onto the pizza pan until the dough is evenly rolled out. Make sure that there are no holes or thinned out areas.
  7. Bake the cauliflower crust for about 30-35 minutes until the crust appears browned. The crust should look crust like for a lack of a better word.
  8. While the cauliflower crust is baking, you can cook the bacon in a skillet until they are crispy to your liking. Set the bacon on paper towels to drain the oil.
  9. Once the cauliflower crust is ready, spread a layer of marinara sauce or sun-dried tomato pesto over it. Next, add a layer of cheese.
  10. Chop up the asparagus and bacon and spread them all over the pizza along with the minced garlic.
  11. Bake for a few minutes until the cheese has melted.
  12. Remove the pizza from the oven and scatter baby greens on top.
  13. Serve the roasted asparagus bacon cauliflower crusted pizza warm.
  14. You can sprinkle salt and crushed red peppers on top to taste.
