Here we used caramelized onions, roasted peppers, asian greens
Caramelized onions - 2 white onions, sliced very thin. In a saute pan on very low heat. saute onions until dark brown. This process takes up to 45 minutes. If onions start to brown to quickly, add a bit of water. Add a pinch of salt. Can be made 1-2 days ahead.
Bell Peppers - Roast 2-3 peppers in oven at 450 , until blackened all around. Takes about 30 -45 minutes. Remove skin and seeds. Can be made 1-2 days ahead.
Greens - Saute two handful of greens in a bit of olive oil, or coconut oil for 2 minutes, until just wilted. Add a pinch of salt.
Shave 2 gloves of garlic, and drizzle a bit of fresh lemon. Sprinkle some Parmigiano on top.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until fine. Lay cauliflower out on a sheet pan and roast for 15 minutes, or until slightly golden. (I like to put it on a kitchen towel to get all the moisture out.) Can be made a day ahead.
Let cool in a bowl, combine the cauliflower, Parmagiano, oregano, salt, onion powder, almond flour, and eggs. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet, or pizza stone, and spread into a circle, resembling a pizza crust. Bake for 20 minutes.
Top with vegetables and serve.
