There is so much that you can do with cauliflower – cauliflower rice, cauliflower mash, cauliflower flat bread, and now cauliflower pizza base. I have to be honest… this pizza took me by surprise. I really wasn’t expecting much more than a glop of mess, but it was so delicious I think I have a few people in my family converted! What I was most impressed about was that I could pick it up and eat it in my hands, just like normal pizza! I usually divide this into 4 individual sized pizza bases, but you could make them larger if you like. Here’s the recipe…
600g cauliflower, chopped into florets
110g almond meal
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Preferred pizza toppings (I used tomato passata, capsicum, fetta, zucchini, mushrooms and grated cheese)
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
- Prepare 4 baking paper sheets (1 for each pizza, approx. 20cm diameter)
- Blitz cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs. (Thermomix – reverse/5 sec/speed 5)
- Transfer cauliflower to a clean tea towel and squeeze out excess water. Put cauliflower into a bowl.
- Add almond meal and eggs. Mix with your hands until smooth.
- Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts and shape into balls. Flatten each ball with your hands onto the prepared baking paper until they are approximately 5cm thick. (You could put another piece of baking paper on top and use a rolling pin if you want to. I found it easy enough by hand).
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden.
- Add your preferred toppings and bake for a further 10 minutes.
