First, I took a fresh head of cauliflower and shoved as much of it as I could into my microwave vegetable steamer for 5 minutes on full power. This resulted in fully cooked cauliflower that wasn't mushy at all. I put that in the food processor and pulsed it until it was uniform and small. I used 2 cups worth (double the recipe).
I spread it in my 14 inch deep dish pan and sprinkled italian seasoning and garlic powder on it and baked it for 15 minutes in my oven that was preheated to 450 degrees.
This is what is looked like when it came out. It actually looks pretty solid.
I spread pizza sauce on the crust and sprinkled cheese and toppings. Because my niece is super picky, this is what I went with, but when I make this in the future, it will have a lot more toppings.
The verdict? It smells great and all four of the little girls here loved it. The drama princess, my niece, told me that I could make it for her every week when she visits. Darth Baby ate two servings. I think it was a little weird for me but edible. The crust wasn't a real crust and was more like squished together couscous in texture and taste, but it held together on a fork even if you couldn't lift it and eat it like a pizza. Considering the difference in healthiness I will definitely be making it for them again (even if not the once a week requested.
