Grate the cauliflower using a cheese grater until you have two cups of cauliflower crumbles. Place in a large bowl and microwave for seven to eight minutes, or until soft. Remove from the microwave and let cool. Place the cauliflower into a clean dish towel & squeeze out all the moisture. Put the cauliflower into a mixing bowl & mix in the egg, one cup mozzarella, salt and pepper. Once combined, pat into a 25cm round pizza base on the prepared baking tray. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
Top the pizza with the tomato sauce, 35g mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms and red pepper flakes. Bake in the oven until melted and bubbly, approximately 10 minutes. Top with basil or rocket before serving. Top tip: you can put all sorts of topping on your pizza like green pepper and red onion.
