Last_Sunday I ate pizza for the first time in *counts fingers* five years. This particular pizza had a cauliflower base, which resulted in significantly less abdominal bloating than you would expect from a regular flour base pizza. It also tasted surprisingly good!
The only 'problem' with this pizza was that the base is not as stable as a regular pizza. Knives and forks were required to consume it. However, that's ok for me as I do not like to eat with my hands anyway.
I combined two recipes to make my cauliflower pizza; one from Sarah Wilson and one from The Fat Loss and Wellness Revolution.
This recipe makes one big pizza (the size of a baking tray - the one above) and a smaller one (the size of a plate - the pineapple pizza below).
What you need
- 1 cauliflower
- 2 eggs
- 50g shredded cheddar cheese
- 50g shredded mozarella cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Toppings - you choose
What you need to do
- Cut cauliflower into pieces and steam until soft (not too soft though).
- Let the cauliflower cool and press into a tea towel to drain excess water. Place into a food processor and process until it is 'crumbed'.
- Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
- Place crumbed cauliflower into a bowl and mix in eggs and cheeses.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the cauliflower mixture over it.
- Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until it is golden.
- Take the pizza base from the oven and place your toppings onto it. I used tomato paste, onion, mushrooms, bacon, tomato and pineapple.
- Bake for a further ten minutes.
- I found the preparation of the base to be quite time consuming. I may prepare the base like this next time - process raw cauliflower, microwave and then squeeze out excess water.
I bought some watercolour pencils from the art shop the other week. I've been having lots of fun drawing/painting with them:)
And_I've_drawn some pictures using old fashioned lead pencil as well.
