Cauliflower Based Pizza
I have been experimenting with this pizza base recipe for some time now, and I have finally perfected it. If you are like me and love the taste of pizza but struggle to enjoy it due to the heavy dough causing havoc in your body, then this healthy twist will go down a treat. This recipe is great for fussy kids who do not like the taste of vegetables. Get creative with your toppings.
1 medium sized cauliflower (when blended, it should make 3 cups)
2 free-range eggs
1 cup gluten free flour
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
Salt + Pepper
2 cups rocket
1 avocado, pip removed, finely sliced
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat oven to 180 degrees fan bake and line and baking tray with non stick paper.
Chop cauliflower into small cubes and place in the food processor, blend until it has a rice-like texture. * I didn't use the best quality food processor so the cauliflower was still quite chunky and the base still turned out great.
Place cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 5 minutes. Once the cauliflower has cooled down, put the cauliflower into a clean tea towel and squeeze the tea towel as much as you can to remove any excess liquid. Place the cauliflower into a large bowl.
Mix in the flour, eggs, and garlic. The mixture should be thick and paste like.
Transfer the mixture to the oven tray, using your hands spread out the mixture into a circle. You still want the base to be 1/2 cm thick. If it is too sticky, sprinkle some flour onto your hands before handling dough.
Bake for 15 minutes, take out and spread the tomato paste over the base. Bake for another 5 minutes or until the edges are golden and crispy.
Once the base is cooked, add your toppings to the pizza and serve.
