If you're using fresh cauliflower rice, steam it briefly in the microwave for about 3-4 minutes. Allow to cool and then wrap in a paper towel tightly to squeeze the water out of it. You want your cauliflower to be dry before mixing with the other ingredients. If you're using frozen cauliflower rice, allow to thaw and then squeeze the water out of it using the paper towel method.
Transfer the cauliflower rice to a bowl. Add the egg, cheese, garlic powder, italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Mix the ingredients together to combine.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray. I use a baking sheet without a rim to make it easier to transfer the crust directly to the rack halfway through baking.
Shape the cauliflower into a large circle on top of the parchment approximately 1/2 inch thick pressing it together to form the crust.
Bake the cauliflower pizza crust dough in a 400 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until the crust is golden and firm.
Carefully slide the parchment paper with the cauliflower crust from the baking sheet directly to the oven rack and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
To freeze your cauliflower pizza crust, freeze on a baking sheet until firm. Then wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Cover with foil and freeze for up to 2 months.
