Makes 4 individual pizzas

Pizza Crust
2 eggs
2 cups reduced fat mozzarella cheese
2 cups riced cauliflower (grate the raw cauliflower on a cheese grater or in a food processor)
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup fresh julienned basil

Pizza Toppings
1 cup marinara sauce (1/4 cup per pizza)
1 zucchini, thinly sliced
 & roasted
1 yellow zucchini, thinly sliced & roasted
Turkey Pepperoni
Basil Ricotta (see recipe below)

Basil Ricotta
1 cup ricotta (low fat)
1 tbsp fresh chopped basil
Pinch salt and pepper

- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, spray with non-stick spray.
- In a medium bowl, combine riced cauliflower, basil, eggs and mozzarella and set aside until ready to use. Divide into 4 amounts and press evenly on the parchment paper.
- Bake the crusts at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until “golden brown”.
- Remove the cookie sheet from the oven.
- Add sauce to each pizza.
- Then add toppings: sliced zucchini and sliced onions. For maximum tastiness, I recommend roasting these in the oven beforehand.
- Drop a teaspoon sized spoon-fulls of basil ricotta cheese on the vegetables and press down slightly on the ricotta to flatten.
- Place back in the oven until pepperoni looks crispy and cheese is melted a bit, about 5 – 10 minutes.
