Cauliflower Almond Butter Pizza Crust

Beef and Onion PizzaI still haven't found that just-right combination of flavor and texture that replicates a good pizza crust for me. Maybe I never will, but I keep trying. This one is good enough we've used it several times. I like the combination of ingredients because I feel like it's a little more nutritionally balanced than some recipes I've seen.

2¼ c cauliflower florets (8 oz)
Scant ¼ c almond butter (4 oz)
4 T butter
2 eggs
¾ c grated mozzarella cheese (3 oz)
  1. Grate cauliflower using a small-holed grater or grind in a food processor.
  2. Blend together cauliflower, butters, eggs, and cheese until well combined.
  3. Spread evenly onto a well-greased (or parchment-lined) 12" round pan or 9x13 pan.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 60 min.
  5. Top with your favorite ingredients and broil until cheese is bubbly.
