Instructions
  1. Make the crust by cutting the florets off of the cauliflower head.
  2. Place in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower begins to resemble a powdery texture. You should have about 3 cups of powdered cauliflower.
  3. Steam the powder for about 3-5 minutes on the stovetop or cover and place in the microwave for 4 minutes until tender.
  4. After cooling, take a light kitchen towel and wring the cauliflower.
  5. Place your dry cauliflower into a bowl and add garlic powder, oregano, chili powder, cumin, kosher salt, cayenne, cheese and egg.
  6. Mix until combined well.
  7. Spray some parchment paper with non stick spray and form into a 10 inch crust, making sure it's not too thin.
  8. Place your crust onto a hot pizza stone and bake in a 450 degree oven for abut 15 minutes until nicely browned and crisp on the edges. Turn oven down to 400 degrees.
  9. To make the homemade tortilla strips - Cut tortillas into thin strips and fry in hot vegetable oil for a few minutes until crisp. Remove from the oil and drain over paper towel. Sprinkle with kosher salt, a squeeze of lime and toss to coat.
  10. In a small bowl, combine tomato paste, water, 1 and ½ tsp. taco seasoning, set aside.
  11. In another small bowl, combine refried black beans and salsa, set aside.
  12. Brown ground turkey with onion until tender.
  13. Drain and add 1 and ½ tsp. of taco seasoning and mix well to combine.
  14. Spread bean mixture over crust leaving a ½ inch border, top with the tomato paste mixture, then add your ground turkey and onion layer.
  15. Sprinkle with cheese and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted.
  16. Remove from the oven and garnish with shredded romaine lettuce, chopped tomato, jalapenos, store bought or homemade tortilla strips and a drizzle of Mexican crema. I added taco sauce to my crema for flavor. Say Grace and enjoy!
