Preparation Instructions:
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Step 2
Arrange riced cauliflower in a single layer on a greased sheet pan and bake at 350°F for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Increase oven temperature to 425˚F.
Step 3
Combine mozzarella, Parmesan cheese and beaten egg in a medium-sized bowl. Add riced cauliflower using your hands to combine until evenly mixed. Spray a baking sheet with pan release and transfer dough, patting into two 10-inch crusts, about 1/4-inch thick. Bake at 425°F until golden and dried out, about 15-20 minutes.
