1/2 C shredded Mozzarella + 1/2 C for topping
1/2 C shredded Parmesan
1t Italian Seasoning
1/4t ground Black Pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Rinse cauliflower, remove leaves and cut into florets. In food processor pulse cauliflower to a rice texture.

Place cauliflower in oven proof baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, place in a cheesecloth lined bowl and let cool for about 15 minutes. Fold towel and squeeze cauliflower as hard as you can to remove all moisture (you may want to do this a few times).

Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F. Transfer cauliflower to a mixing bowl along with eggs, 1/2 C mozzarella and 1/2 C Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

Transfer to a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and flatten into a rectangle approximately 10″x 8″ and 1/4 inch thick.

Bake for 18 minutes, remove from oven and top with remaining 1/2 C Mozzarella and bake for 5 minutes until cheese is golden brown.

Remove from oven, cut into 20 slices and serve warm with marinara dipping sauce.
