I’ve blogged about Cauliflower Pizza before and Sox has been requesting it for months now. I had a pizza craving, so I thought I’d make it again!
Cauliflower Rice – either grate heads of cauliflower or pop them into a food processor (or buy the Woolies packet – I use the whole packet.)
1 cup of grated Mozzarella cheese.
2 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese.
1 large egg.
Salt & Pepper.
Baking Paper & Baking Tray.
Pizza Toppings: You can use whatever you want really. Be as classic or creative as you like.
I went classic.
Sugar free tomato paste
Herbs – origanum.
Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
Steam the cauliflower. Allow it to cool down as you don’t want it to melt the cheese.
Once it’s cool to the touch, add your cheeses, egg and salt and pepper.
Smush it all together. The fun is getting your hands dirty.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Now, if you follow me on Snapchat you would have seen my incredibly blonde moment. It was really funny and I definitely had a good laugh at myself. To be fair, the baking paper I have is completely confusing. If you hold the paper and look at it, it says: Place This Side On Tray. If you do that, it’s the wrong side and you can’t read it. You actually have to turn it over so that you can read the sign, but then it’s not “place THIS side on tray.” Does that make sense?
Oh and um… Why can’t baking paper just be waxy on both sides? Problem solved.
Anyway – moral of the story – ENSURE you use the right, waxy side.
Smooth the cauliflower mixture as thinly as you can, without leaving in gaps.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes and keep checking it doesn’t burn.
It should go a little golden and crisp (if it’s thin enough.)
Leave it to cool a little and then add your toppings.
I smeared some tomato paste on, scattered salami, olives and cheese all over.
Try to make it back to your oven, before you eat the toppings off… Place it under the grill just to melt the cheese.
Not photographed – scraping it off the baking paper, but you would have seen Sox laughing at my blonde moments!
Regardless of my funny mishap, it was still DELICIOUS!
