Hi everyone ,
I have come across a pizza recipe on the internet using cauliflower as a base. It makes a nice thin crispy pizza crust. It's syn free on all plans ! I thought I'd share the recipe with you all . Would love to hear your feedback .
Syn Free on all 3 plans !Cauliflower Crust Pizza
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
45g shredded mozzarella cheese (HEA)
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp garlic salt
Syn free Pizza sauce
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Other additional toppings of your choice
Syn Free Pizza Sauce
Throw a can of chopped tomatoes and some fresh crushed garlic into a saucepan with some salt to taste, black pepper and some dried basil and oregano – just for a bit more oomph. Let the mixture bubble away and reduce down a bit. This will be your pizza sauce to spread over the base.
To rice your cauliflower, take 1 large head of cauliflower, remove the stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to a food processor and pulse just until it looks like rice. Alternatively, you can grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater. Place the riced cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl, add 1/4 cup water, and microwave for 6-8 minutes, stirring half-way through.
To make the pizza, preheat the oven to 230c. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and spray with frylight. In a medium bowl, combine the cauliflower, half of the mozzarella cheese mixture and egg together and stir until well incorporated. Add the oregano, garlic, and garlic salt. Transfer to the baking tray, and shape into a 9-inch circle. Spray the crust with frylight to help it brown in the oven. Bake at 230c for 15 minutes, until the crust is browned and cooked through the middle.
Remove the crust from the oven. The crust should look something like this :-
Now you can add your pizza sauce and toppings with the remainder cheese on top to your crust. Place under the top shelf of oven at high heat until the cheese is melted and bubbly.(About 3-4 minutes).
Allow the pizza to cool slightly, then cut into slices and serve.
Enjoy !! xx
