Pizza of… cauliflower

I know it sounds weird but this pizza has not even 1 gram of flour. As the dough is done with cauliflower and is low-carb, this means we can eat it more often, and leave the traditional Italian pizzas for special occasions.

It tastes very good. Do it, it will surprise you!

Psssst! Don’t tell your family the secret, they will never guess in 1000 years 😉

 For the dough: (1 or 2 persons)

1 small cauliflower

1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese

1 egg white

1 tablespoon of flax seeds (milled)

oregano

……

tomato sauce (or tomato paste)

mozzarella

mushrooms

cherry tomatoes

some basil leaves

…….

Put the cauliflower in a mincer and chop it, until it looks like rice grains.

Pack it in a clean kitchen cloth and squeeze it to drain all the water (although it doesn’t look like it, as all veggies, cauliflower contains a lot of water).

Put it in a bowl and add the egg white, parmesan cheese, milled flax seeds and oregano to taste.

Mix it well, pressing, until it looks like a dough.

Pre-heat the oven at 220 degrees.

Put the cauliflower “dough” on an oven tray with baking paper, and press with the hands to form the pizza, very thin (about ½ cm).

Bake it at 220 degrees for 20 min.

Once it’s golden and crunchy, we can add our favourite ingredients to the pizza.

Today I’ve put: tomato paste, sliced mushrooms, light mozzarella, some cherry tomatoes and oregano.

Bake it again for 10 min, until the mozzarella is melted.

Before serving, I add some fresh basil or rucola leaves.

Ready to eat!

My 6 year old son doesn’t like cauliflower, but he loves this pizza … so I’m going to keep the secret for now 😉
