Preheat your oven to 400F.n2. To make the cauliflower rice, pulse batches of raw cauliflower florets in a food processor, until a rice-like texture is achieved.n3. Fill a large pot with about an inch of water, and bring it to a boil. Add the u201criceu201d and cover; let it cook for about 4-5 minutes. Drain into a fine-mesh strainer.n4. THIS IS THE SECRET: Once youu2019ve strained the rice, transfer it to a clean, thin dishtowel. Wrap up the steamed rice in the dishtowel, twist it up, then SQUEEZE all the excess moisture out! Itu2019s amazing how much extra liquid will be released, which will leave you with a nice and dry pizza crust.n5. In a large bowl, mix up your strained rice, beaten egg, goat cheese, and spices. (Donu2019t be afraid to use your hands! You want it very well mixed.) It wonu2019t be like any pizza dough youu2019ve ever worked with, but donu2019t worryu2013 itu2019ll hold together!n6.

After baking the crusts, wrap up the extra pizza crust in foil, and FREEZE it for a quick u201cfrozen pizzau201d to enjoy another night! All you need to do is add toppings and bake at 400F, until the cheese is hot and bubbly.
