Cauliflower Pizza Base
Fantastic Pizza Base! You will be surprised by how delicious (not to mention healthy) this base is. A must try.
Preparation: 20 minutes
Baking: 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes with the toppings)
Makes 1 medium pizza
1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets
¼ cup parmesan cheese
¼ cup mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Dash of sea salt
Pre-heat oven to 220 C (430 F).
Put the cauliflower florets into a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is very fine.
Fill a pot with about 2 – 3 cm (1 inch) of water, and bring to a boil. Add the fine cauliflower, cover and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Drain into a fine-mesh strainer.
Transfer the cauliflower to a clean tea towel and wring out all the excess liquid – be careful it is hot! It’s important to squeeze all the liquid out.
Put the dried cauliflower into a bowl and mix together with the egg, parmesan, mozzarella, oregano and salt (this is best done by hand).
Press the dough on a baking tray or pizza stone lined with parchment paper.
Bake for about 20 minutes.
Add the toppings of your choice and bake for an additional 10 minutes
