Pizza! (and it happens to be on a cauliflower crust)

One thing Greg and I miss since we have removed gluten from our diet is pizza. What normal American doesn't like pizza?! About once every other month or so, we would go out to have gluten free pizza at a restaurant, not knowing what ingredients were used. Yikes! So, I was thrilled to find a recipe that is made with all real food, easy to make and very tasty!

What you need:
 1 head of organic cauliflower, washed and broken into large pieces
 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
 1 pastured egg
 1/2 tsp basil
 1/2 tsp oregano
 3 cloves garlic
 1/2 tsp sea salt
 1 Tbs. melted butter
 1 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
 3/4 cup homemade spaghetti sauce
 1/4 lb. bacon, sliced and cooked
 Crushed red pepper flakes
 Handful of organic black Kalamata olives
 Handful of grated Parmesan cheese
 Handful of organic arugula
 Organic extra virgin olive oil

What you do:
 Preheat oven to 475ยบ
 Pulse cauliflower chunks and garlic in food processor
 Place in large mixing bowl
 Add Parmesan cheese, egg, basil, oregano, and sea salt.
 Mix together with large spoon or hands until well blended
 Place mixture on thin dish towel and squeeze to remove most of the liquid
 Melt butter and spread on parchment lined baking sheet
 Place cauliflower mixture on baking sheet and flatten out to an even 12 inch circle
 Bake until outer edges are lightly browned, about 15 minutes
 Remove from oven and let settle for about 2 minutes
 Add grated mozzarella to crust
 Then add sauce, bacon, olives and sprinkle with red pepper flakes
 Cover with handful of Parmesan cheese
 Bake for another 5 minutes (Broil briefly if desired)
 Add arugula and drizzle with olive oil
