Can you guess what it is?
It's round, filled with delicious herbs, baked in an oven and topped with all the best things...
Yes! It's pizza! With a twist...
Ok- it's honesty o'clock. As a kid I used to detest cauliflower. Wouldn't look at it, wouldn't smell it, wouldn't touch it and most certainly wouldn't eat it.
Now, I still don't like it very much. It just doesn't taste like anything to me, I don'[t see what it's life purpose is. It's like honey dew melon- no one really remembers it at all but you'll be sure to find it in every fruit salad!
I thought about this for a second and was like- 'If cauliflower doesn't taste like anything, then shouldn't I be able to make it taste like anything I want??' This thought also reminded me of a post I had seen on Peanut Butter Fingers.
Hmmm. A pizza base made of cauliflower. Why not? :)
Yes- why not indeed, where have you been all my life!
Ok, ok- here's the
Half a head of cauliflower
1-2 tablespoons of hommus
1-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (the hommus and nutritional yeast sub for the cheese- feel free to add a handful of actual cheese)
A sprinkle of dried oregano and dried basil
Whatever you want to top your pizza off with
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a pizza tray/ baking tray with baking paper and spray with oil (so the base doesn't stick)
2. Place the cauliflower in a food processor and process until all broken up and resembling rice:
4. Whisk up the egg and then add to the cauliflower along with the hommus, nutritional yeast and herbs.
pesto, mushrooms, capsicum and olives)
Talk to me:
Do you like cauliflower? I'm sure there are some of you that exist ;)
Do you like pizza? Of course you do- what's your favourite kind?
Have you ever had a cauliflower crust pizza before?
Bye for now friends! :D
