Healthy Pizza - Cauliflower Base

Hey there Lovelies,

Everyone loves pizza, which is why I want to share a healthier pizza recipe with you that I discovered a little over a year ago. A Cauliflower base pizza!! I know what you are thinking, there is no way this tastes like pizza or even tastes good what so ever. But I must say IT DOES!

All you will need:
Half a cauliflower
1 egg
100g of low-fat grated mozzarella cheese
some grated parmesan cheese
Half a tin of Tomato Sauce (no added sugar)
Cherry Tomatoes
Fresh Basil Leaves
Salt and Pepper

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees C.

Grate the cauliflower with a grater until you have half a cauliflower worth of crumbs (it kinda looks like grated cheese). Place the cauliflower crumbs in a big bowl and microwave for 7/8 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft.

Then let the cauliflower cool and put the cauliflower crumbs in a tea towel and try to squeeze out as much water as possible. Then add in the egg, most of the mozzarella (roughly, 80% or whatever you don’t want to use as topping) and salt and pepper. This will create a doughy, sticky mixture.

Pat the “dough” into the shape you would like on a piece of baking paper and put it in the oven for roughly 10-15min or until it’s golden brown.

While your pizza base is in the oven you can repare your pizza toppings. I am adding fresh basil leaves, tomatoes sauce, cheery tomatoes, parmesan cheese and the rest of the mozzarella.

Take the pizza base out of the oven and add your toppings.

Put the pizza back into the oven for another 10min or until the cheese topping is melted.

Enjoy your healthier pizza!!
