Cauliflower Crust Breakfast Pizza

My friends and I shared a breakfast pizza at a local restaurant a few months ago and everything about it was delicious…the crispy crust, the garlicky taste, the bacon, and especially the egg on top.  Since you know me, you know I had to recreate it.  But, instead of a dough crust, I recreated the pizza with a cauliflower crust.  The crust was not as crispy, but then again I didn’t use cornmeal or a pizza stone.  But, this breakfast pizza will definitely be on repeat in my kitchen!  I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients For Cauliflower Crust:

Nonstick spray

1 Head of Cauliflower

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese 

2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese

Salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic salt, and cayenne pepper (to taste)

Toppings:

Cooked Bacon, diced

Egg

Spinach, shredded in food processor 

Tomato Sauce

Shredded Mozzarella and Mexican Cheeses

(You can add another egg if desired, so each person can have one!)
