Cheesy Cauliflower Crust

20 oz riced or chopped cauliflower* (fresh or frozen), about 5 cups

1/4 cup grated or shredded Parmesan

1 tsp Italian seasoning (1/2 teaspoon Herbs de Provence can be substituted)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup Lucerne® egg white (1 large egg can be substituted)

1 cup part-skim shredded or grated mozzarella

(or) 2-3 whole wheat Signature Kitchens® Naan Bread

(or) 2-3 whole wheat or gluten-free tortillas

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line a non-stick baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat 2, 10-inch wide areas with cooking spray.

2. If using cauliflower florets, pulse in a food processor until a cauliflower “rice” forms. Place rice or chopped cauliflower in a microwave-safe dish, cover and microwave until soft (about 3 minutes). Let cool for a few minutes, then pour cauliflower into a clean, dry kitchen towel (double thickness works well with thinner towels). Wrap it up and, over the sink, wring out as much moisture as possible.

3. In a large bowl, using a scraper, blend cauliflower with Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt, egg or egg white and mozzarella. Divide the mixture in two and press each half onto the prepared 10-inch areas.

4. Bake until golden (about 20 minutes).
