Cauliflower Crust:


Cauliflower Crust In food processor or blender, pulse cauliflower until it reaches consistency of coarse crumbs. Place pizza pan or baking sheet in oven and preheat oven to 425°F. Place cauliflower and 3 tbsp water in microwaveable dish and cover with plastic wrap, leaving one edge lifted. Microwave on high, stirring once or twice during cooking time, until cauliflower is tender, 5 to 7 minutes; let cool. Drain cauliflower in colander lined with cheesecloth or thin clean tea towel. Wrap cauliflower in cheesecloth and twist while pressing to remove all liquid (this step is essential).

In bowl, combine cauliflower, egg, mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic powder and oregano; season with salt and pepper. Using your fingers, transfer cauliflower mixture to piece of parchment paper and press into 12-inch circle. Slide parchment paper with cauliflower crust onto hot baking sheet from preheated oven. Bake until crust is golden brown, 13 to 15 minutes.

Topping  Evenly spread 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over baked cauliflower crust, leaving 1/2-inch border. Top with half of the mozzarella cheese, and onion slices. In bowl, toss chicken with remaining barbecue sauce; evenly arrange over crust and top with remaining mozzarella. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onion. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated for up to 2 days.)
