- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Heat water and rice in a saucepan; boil for 1 minute and remove from heat. Cover; let stand until water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Spoon warm rice into a bowl; stir in Parmesan cheese. Allow mixture to cool.
- Coat a pizza pan with cooking spray. Dust with 1 1/2 teaspoon cornmeal.
- Mix beaten egg, sesame seeds, and cilantro into rice mixture. Mound in the center of the prepared pizza pan. Shape into a deep-dish crust, approximately 1/4-inch deep with slightly raised edges. Dust edges with remaining cornmeal.
- Bake on the upper rack of the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Slide crust carefully from the pan directly onto the oven rack using a pizza paddle; bake until just starting to brown, 5 to 8 minutes more. Use the paddle to remove crust from the oven and return it to the pan.
- Top pizza with chili, Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and panko. Spray with cooking spray.
- Return pizza to the hot oven; bake until cheese bubbles, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand for 5 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- When shaping the crust, use your hands and the back of a dampened wooden spoon to press and mold the rice.
- Editor's Note:
- Parboiled rice is also known as converted rice; look for it in boxes in the rice aisle.
