Gluten-free pizza with cauliflower base
I absolutely ADORE pizza. So I'm not going to lie and say that this cauliflower base tastes exactly like a real pizza base because it does not. In fact, I think it tastes somewhere inbetween a cauliflower and a potato.
Anyhow, it's delicious and it's good for you. So, if you're a hardcore pizza fan like moi, you can enjoy the real deal maybe once a week or even better once a month and devour this beauty the rest of the time.
In addition, it's super duper easy to make and it's free from gluten and dairy too.
|1 medium cauliflower head|
|1 tbsp olive oil|
|2 free range eggs|
|3 tbsp coconut flour (not to be confused with desiccated coconut)|
|Salt and pepper|
|Grated mozzarella (omit for dairy-free option)|
|Fresh parsley (chopped)|
|Preheat the oven to 200C.|
|In a food processor, whiz the cauliflower until it becomes similar to bread crumbs.|
|Transfer the cauliflower to a frying pan with the olive oil and cook for about 10 minutes on a medium heat, stirring constantly.|
|When cooked and mushy-like, take off the heat and transfer into a big bowl.|
|Add the eggs, coconut flour and salt and pepper to the cooked cauliflower and mix well.|
|Tip the entire cauliflower mixture onto a lined oven tray.|
|Using your hands, form a pizza base (round or square is up to you) about 1cm thick.|
|Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden.|
|Remove from the oven, spread the base with tomato paste then top with the mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, olives and mushrooms.|
|Bake in the oven for a further 10-15 minutes, but keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.|
|To finish, top with fresh parsley and enjoy with a green salad.|
