Low Carb, Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza!

This recipe is so tasty that you will not even pass consideration to its lack of dough!

For me, gluten is one of the most difficult ingredients to replace, so I am really excited to share this recipe with you.  The base is crispy & holds its shape & strength delivering a mouthwatering cheese & tomato hit of happiness without the flop!

Although this recipe is simple, there are a few steps involved but the results are well worth it!

							

Method

Chopp your cauliflower into pieces & whizz in a food processor until small cauliflower crumbs.  You will probably have to do this in a few batches.

Steam the cauliflower until soft, stirring every now & then to ensure even cooking.  Depending on the size of your cauliflower this will take between 10-20 minutes.

Once cooked lay out on a clean t-towel & leave to cool.  

Once cool enough to handle, squeeze as much moisture out of the cauliflower as you can.  You may have to use a couple of t-towels for this process.

The key to this dish is to get your cauliflower as dry as possible for a crispy base.

Weigh your cauliflower in a bowl.  Divide the weight of the cauliflower by 10 to give you the weight needed for the ground almonds & cheese.  Add everything to the bowl, seasoning well.

Bring the mix together with your hands until it comes together.  On a piece of baking paper press out to form your base, about the depth of 50p coin.

Place a pizza stone or tray in the oven on its hottest setting.  Once upto temperature, carefully transfer your base on to the stone or tray & bake for 7-10 minutes.

Once your base has browned & crispy enough to handle, flipp over and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.

Once evenly coloured, spread tomato puree or BBQ sauce over the base and layer up with your chosen toppings.
Reduce the oven temperature to 200 & cook for 10-15 minutes until all the cheese has melted & your pizza is pipping throughout.
