  • 1
    Heat oven to 400° F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper; spray paper with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 3-quart saucepan, place steamer basket; add 1/2 inch water (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place cauliflower in basket; cover tightly and heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; steam covered about 10 minutes or until soft.
  • 3
    Place cauliflower in large bowl. Using potato masher, gently break cauliflower into rice-sized pieces. Wrap cauliflower in paper towel; squeeze to remove any excess water. Return cauliflower to bowl. Add eggs, cheese, oregano and garlic powder; mix to form soft dough.
  • 4
    Divide dough into 4 equal pieces; place each on cookie sheet. Using hands, flatten each piece into round about 6 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. Spray tops of rounds with cooking spray. Bake 20 minutes.
  • 5
    Remove from oven. Turn crusts over; use paper towel to blot away any excess moisture. Spread each crust with pasta sauce. Top each with onion, bell pepper, spinach and olives.
  • 6
    Return to oven; bake 5 minutes longer or until toppings are warm. Cut each pizza into 4 pieces; serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Since there’s cheese in the crust, you don’t need any more on top. However, if you desire, 1/4 cup cheese can be reserved and added with the toppings.
  • Too much moisture in your toppings can seep into the cauliflower and result in a soggy crust. Use only a light coating of sauce and make sure the spinach is as dry as you can get it.
