Ingredients (makes 1 pizza, serves 1)
½ Large cauliflower head
1 Clove of garlic, crushed
2 tbsp Grated parmesan
A couple of sprigs of fresh parsley
1 tbsp Dried oregano
Salt and pepper to season
Start by removing the large stalks from your cauliflower. You then have a few options in order to get your cauliflower to look like cauliflower rice – you can grate it, or blitz it in a food processor for about 10 seconds, or do what I did and use your Nutribullet. To use your Nutribullet, add a few florets each time and blitz for 3 seconds, then add into a large bowl, continue this until your half cauliflower is in little bits of grain.
Place the bowl of grated cauliflower into the microwave for 7minutes. When complete, allow to cool.
Once cool, scoop out of the bowl and place in the centre of a tea towel. You then want to make a little bundle and squeeze out all of the excess water (the cauliflower will hold a lot of water) until you can get the cauliflower as dry as possible. Thenpop back into your large bowl.
Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan).
To the bowl of cauliflower, add the crushed garlic clove, parmesan cheese, egg, parsley, oregano and season with the salt and pepper. Mix well until all of the ingredients have combined and a ball shape forms.
Place a sheet of baking parchment onto a baking tray and add your cauliflower ‘dough’ to the middle of it. Begin to flatten and shape to form the base. I made two pizzas – a circular pizza and a heart shaped pizza and both worked well, so feel free to be adventurous! Smooth around the edge of the pizza by pushing it towards the centre a bit, this will make a crust.
Place the base into the oven and bake for approximately 20mins. Your pizza should look golden and the edges golden brown.
Remove from the oven, top with your tomato sauce, mozzarella and toppings of choice and return to the oven for another 10minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
