These past few days I have been craving one of my Cauliflower pizzas  . For those of you who don’t like cauliflower, I do not recommend this recipe but for those of you who do…keep on reading 😉

For the base:

  • 1/2 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 2 TBSP Parmesan cheese (or 1/4 cup  Low Fat cheese of choice)
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder (or 1 clove fresh garlic, crushed)
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

  • 3 TBSP passata sauce
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to make it:

  1.   Preheat oven to 200C (350F) and prepare a baking tray with baking paper, set aside. Place the florets into a food processor or blender and blender until finely chopped. Place chopped cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and cover the top with cling film, place in microwave on high for 7-10 minutes or until soft.
  2. Remove cling film and set aside to cool.
  3. In a small bowl, combine ingredients for sauce and mix until well combined, set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix cooled cauliflower, egg, oregano, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix until well combined.
  5. On the prepared tray pour the cauliflower mixture on and spread out into a rounded shape until about 1cm thick. Pour sauce on top and spread evenly across dough. Sprinkle with light cheese if you like and add any of your favorite toppings on top. Place in oven and cook for 25-30 min or until golden brown.

Serve warm and enjoy!! 🙂
