FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Cauliflower crusted pizza is so delicious, easy to make, and low in calories that you will want to add this recipe to your "make it often" repertoire! Seriously, it has 66% less calories than the average slice of cheese pizza, ringing in at about 100 calories per slice.

Here is how to do it step by step:

Place riced cauliflower in a microwaveable container, cover it, and then microwave on high for 3-5 minutes until it is just tender. If you don't have riced cauliflower you can put it in food processor and pulse lightly until it is in small rice-like pieces. Blot the cooked and riced cauliflower in paper towels to remove all excess water.

Place the cooked and dried cauliflower in a mixing bowl. Add a half cup of Panko bread crumbs and a half cup of grated Parmesan cheese and mix well. Season with a little Italian seasoning and garlic salt.
