Cauliflower Pizza (Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

Cauliflower Pizza (Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

This is a delicious and healthy pizza alternative, much better than the regular carbs and fat-filled pizza as you won’t regret eating it! If you like to eat pizza why not try this healthier version? It’s paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free. It’s great for kids. Most cauliflower pizza recipes contain cheese but this one doesn’t and it still tastes great and holds together well like regular pizza. I like to top with vegetables to make it as healthy as possible. You can add any toppings you like and a bit of cheese to make it tastier. It’s a little bit of effort but well worth it. Hope you like it!

Cauliflower Base:

  • 3 tablespoons quinoa or amaranth
  • ¼ small cauliflower (about 250 grams)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes (optional)

Topping suggestions:

  • Organic tomato paste or pesto
  • Roasted sweet potato or pumpkin
  • Homemade popcorn chicken (recipe coming soon)
  • Onion rings, sliced (I like to precook mine)
  • Baby spinach leaves

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C or 160 C fan-forced.
  2. Rinse quinoa.
  3. Process cauliflower in a food processor until it looks like rice.
  4. Place quinoa and cauliflower rice into a large saucepan, cover with water. Bring to boil.
  5. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Drain over a sieve and press out any excess water with a wooden spoon.
  7. Transfer to a large bowl and spread out to cool slightly. Add egg, salt and nutritional yeast if using. Mix well and divide between two baking trays lined with paper.
  8. Spread out to form two firm circles about 1cm thick. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden and the bases are set.
  9. Remove from oven and top with healthy toppings such as the suggestions above.
  10. Return to the oven until toppings are cooked to your liking.

Enjoy!!
