Cauliflower Pizza Crust

"Guilt-free pizza? Yes! This recipe makes one 12-inch pizza which is enough for 1 or 2. The timing remains the same for both microwaving or baking even if you make more or less of the recipe. Once the crust is done, you can top it with whatever you choose. In the photos I used a thick tomato sauce, thinly sliced salami, thin sliced peppers and onions, black olives, feta, and fresh herbs. Any toppings that need cooking should be cooked ahead of time (while the crust is baking) because it only gets run through the broiler to warm and/or melt the cheese (mozzarella will melt better). To rice the cauliflower: Cut off the florets from a head of fresh cauliflower and pulse in a food processor. Do not over-process or you will get a puree. You can also grate the cauliflower on a box grater."
