Serves 4people
Ingredients
1
medium head cauliflower, chopped
1
cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1
large egg
1/2
tsp garlic powder
1/2
tsp dried oregano
1/4
tsp salt
1/2
lb lean ground beef
1/4
cup shredded yellow squash
1/4

1
clove garlic, minced
1/4
tsp dried oregano
freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
1/2
cup tomato sauce
1
cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Directions
1.
Preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C).
2.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
3.
In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower into very small pieces.
4.
Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until tender, about 4 minutes. Let the cauliflower cool for several minutes.
5.
Wrap the cooled cauliflower in a kitchen towel and squeeze out any excess liquid.
6.
In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, egg, garlic powder, oregano, and salt.
7.
Stir to combine.
8.
Divide the mixture into 8 equal parts and form each one into a ball.
9.
Press and flatten the balls into circles or fun shapes.
10.
Place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
11.
Bake the pizza crusts for 15 minutes.
12.
Flip crusts over and continue baking for another 15 minutes, until firm and light golden brown.
13.
Remove the crusts from the oven, but leave the oven on.
14.
While crusts are baking, make the toppings:
15.
In a large sauté pan over moderate heat, cook the ground beef, yellow squash, zucchini, garlic, oregano, and pepper.
16.
Stir to break up the beef and continue cooking until the beef is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Drain any excess liquid.
17.
Assemble and bake the pizzas:
18.
Spread the tomato sauce on the crusts.
19.
Top the pizzas with the beef mixture, cheese, and any optional toppings you choose.
20.
Bake until the cheese bubbles, about 6 minutes. (For a delicious smoky taste, heat pizzas on a wood-fire or charcoal grill.)
