Cauliflower Pizza Base
Here is a fabulous simple recipe for an all time favourite. I am not going to pretend that it tastes like real pizza base, but the consistency is firm when cooked and easy to manage. It also carries flavour really well so you can can place all your favourite pizza toppings on and sneak in those extra vegetables.
INGREDIENTSFlorets from 1 cauliflower 3/4 cup ground almonds (almond flour) 1 tbsp dried herbs like thyme or oregano 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 3 eggs
Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Coarsely chop the cauliflower, place in food processor and blend until it is broken down into a crumb similar to rice consistency.
Measure 3 cups of the cauliflower ‘rice’ and place in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, ground almonds, herbs and seasoning and mix together until well combined. Transfer to the baking paper and spread it out to form into a pizza base by flattening the dough with your hands.
Pre-bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
Remove the crust from the oven. Cover it with your favourite toppings and place back in the oven for a further 5-10 minutes. Serve straight from the oven.
