There are all sorts of recipes online, I read through several and just sort of did my own version. Basically I take a cup of shredded cauliflower (which can be done with a cheese grater or food processor), cook it for a couple of minutes in the microwave, and when it's cool enough to work with add a cup of shredded cheese (I used mozzarella) and one egg. This is the batter for the crust, which can be seasoned before baking. I formed and baked it on parchment paper (although a greased pan should work fine) for about 20 minutes in a preheated 450 oven. Once it's cool enough to work with, top as you like and bake it in a 350 oven for an additional 8 minutes.
Thanks for sharing! Sounds simple enough, I'll give it a try
