Healthy Cauliflower Pizza

This awesome, super nutritious, alternative to a bread pizza base is something you won’t regret trying

The key to getting it perfect is the squeezing of the ‘dough’ in a tea towel, so all the excess moisture comes out  (if you rush through this bit, you’ll end up with a rather unappetising, steaming circle of cauli-mash in the oven.)

Makes 2 small pizza bases, or 1 large

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 free-range organic eggs
  • 4 tbs almond meal
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Good pinch of sea salt
  • Good pinch of dried herbs
  • Whatever healthy pizza toppings you like

 

 

Method

  • Wash the cauliflower and break into florets.
  • Blitz in a food processor until you get fine crumbs.
  • Place into a microwave-safe bowl and cook uncovered for 5 mins on High (do not add water).
  • Spoon out into a clean tea towel and wrap tightly so the cauliflower forms a ball. Squeeze out as much water as possible – you should get at least 1 cup of liquid.
  • Place cauliflower back into the bowl and add eggs, almond meal, garlic, salt and herbs, and mix well.
  • Turn mixture out onto a sheet of baking paper and flatten into a circle (or 2, if desired).
  • Bake at 200C for 10-12 minutes, or until edges have browned and crisped.
  • Add your toppings and return to the oven for another 10 minutes, or add fresh toppings.
