Pow, Pow, Pow Cauliflower Power

Recently I have been having a love affair with cauliflower rice, so when I spotted a recipe for cauliflower crust pizza I was eager to try it out! I was not disappointed, it was very satisfying. You would not even notice the difference. Cauliflower crust pizza creates a thin base and can be enjoyed with any topping you desire.

Cauliflower crust pizza is low carb and it won’t leave you feeling bloated. It is also gluten-free. Cauliflower is great for your digestion,weight loss, cancer prevention, heart health, packed with B vitamins and an anti-inflammatory.

I served sweet potato wedges with the cauliflower crust pizza, homemade pesto and homemade guacamole. If you really want to chill add a glass of your favourite wine. Go on treat yourself, you won’t be disappointed!

For the Cauliflower Crust you will need:

Makes 2 Pizzas

  • You will need a baking tray with holes on the bottom to allow air to circulate and cook the crust thoroughly.
  • Spatula to flatten and round the mixture.
  • Baking paper to line the tray.

2.5 cups Cauliflower

1 cup Almond Meal (I used almond meal left over from making the almond milk)

2 Eggs

Handful Fresh Herbs, finely chopped (I used Italian Parsley)

Pinch of Pink Himalayan Rock Salt

Pepper

Method

Put the cauliflower in a food processor and blend it till it resembles rice. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients. The mixture will not have a doughy texture so don’t worry. Scoop out enough mixture for one pizza onto the tray. Smooth out the mixture with your spatula ½ inch thick. Place in the oven at 200 until golden brown.

I took it out of the oven after 20 minutes, removed the grease proof paper, flipped it over and put it back into the oven for another 5 minutes to give it a crispy base.

Sauce

I blended a Punnet of Cherry Tomatoes, added half clove of Garlic, Pink Rock Salt and Pepper. You can use tinned tomatoes as an alternative.

Toppings

You can add any topping you desire. I added Spinach, Mushroom and Feta. I pre cooked the mushrooms in a little coconut oil.

Eat Real, Great Feel!
