Here is a ‘healthy’ gluten free vegetarian pizza recipe with a base made from cauliflower! I got the recipe from the Real Foods website but I’ve adapted it to suit the ingredients I had to hand.
- Florets of 1 cauliflower
- Handful of pine nuts
- Sprinkle of Chia Seeds (the new ‘it’ food, entirely optional!)
- Handful of cheese (I used some cheddar I had in the fridge)
- 2 Eggs
I boil the cauliflower for about 5 mins then blended them. I wrapped them in a tea towel and squeezed out all the water. I mixed the cauliflower with all the other ingredients and spread the mixture on a baking tray. I baked the base for about 10mins at 180C.
- Tomato paste
- 2 Tomatoes
- Goat’s cheese
- Red onion
- Cheddar cheese
I fried the onion and chopped all the other ingredients. I then spread the tomato paste on the base and arranged the other ingredients on the base. I then put it back in the oven for another 15mins.
It tasted a lot better than I anticipated! The base had a mild cauliflower flavour but mainly the whole things tasted like cheese! A success! The base did not entirely hold together but I didn’t expect it to.
