low carb pizza

Some of you know,I lost some weight and now it's the hard part, keep it off!! So I have been researching about food that it's low carb but natural :). Yesterday I found a blog that talked about a cauliflower pizza crust, I know!! I thought the same but I was willing to try it.
I changed a little the ingredients because I didn't have the exact ingredients and it turned out really good.

1 head of brocoflower almost 3 cups (I think it will better with regular Cauliflower )
3 eggs
2 cups of Colby cheese (Monterrey Jack or Mozzarella could be yummy too)
4 garlic gloves chopped and grilled
Spices rosemary, basil

First pizza
Bacon bites
Grilled Onions
Second Pizza
Fresh Spinach
Fresh Mozzarella
Fresh tomatoes
Third pizza
Blue cheese
Buffalo wings sauce

Wash and cut the florets off the brocoflower and then pulse it in the food processor not too long so it is not puree. Then cook it in the microwave for 8 minutes. In the blog I read it said 20 minutes at 400 F and 20 minutes at 350 F for my taste it was like an hour at 400.
After is cook let it cool down a little bit and then mix all the ingredients, I put aluminium foil for less clean up, spray a lot of Pam and cover the bottom of the pan and press it down a bit, then put it in the oven for 40 minutes at 400 F (check it during that time) when it's golden brown (I like mine brown) take it out and put toppings like cooked meats, vegetables, different cheeses, etc. And place in the oven for another 15 minutes.
