Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I fell off the wagon so hard that I hurt myself, and it's been a struggle to get back on.  I really need to buckle down and do the low-carb thing again, as it's the only thing that works for me since I have a true carb addiction.  Some of the things I really miss when following a low-carb diet are bread, pasta, and pizza.  My friend Tay has come up with a low carb pizza crust made from cauliflower, so this might be just the thing to encourage me to keep at it.

It doesn't take many ingredients, but I'll have to remember to keep grated parmesan cheese on hand as I don't use that too often.  I haven't actually tried the cauliflower pizza crust yet, but I have done mashed cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes and like that just fine, so I'm pretty sure I can take Tay's word on this one.

If you try out her recipe, please let me know how you liked it.

Now to find a good substitute for pasta ... still working on that one!
