Cauliflower pizza crust

Our executive director Sara Berney gave this savory, cheesy recipe a try with friends and loved the extra crunch! Plus it's gluten-, grain-, and oil-free. However, the price for this meal proved too difficult for us to estimate given the variety of ingredients. 

Ingredients (only for pizza crust)

1 head of cauliflower, "riced" (6 cups or ~750 g)
1 1/2 flax eggs
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 tbsp (15 g) Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp (14 g) cornstarch
1 tbsp (7 g) cornmeal
