Gluten Free Pizza
Pizza – one of the best exports from Italy. Comforting, tasty and the ultimate indulgence – there is never a dull moment with Pizza involved. Unfortunately I am allergic to wheat which kind of puts a dent in my pizza escapades until I discovered this tasty recipe. Its perfect if you’re making it for flatmates or boyfriends who may be a little bit adverse to the healthy way of life. All round belly pleaser.
Simple and easy to make after a long day in the office. You can let go of the stresses of the day while tucking into some comfort food. Bring the flavours of Italia right to your home.
2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 a large head)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups shredded light mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup tomato sauce/ paste
Preheat oven to 220c
Find a pizza slate or a baking tray and line with parchment paper
Grate the cauliflower using a box grater until you have two cups of cauliflower crumbles. Place in a large bowl and microwave for seven to eight minutes, or until soft.
Remove from the microwave and let cool.
Strain through a dish cloth by putting all the mixture inside a clean cloth and squeezing out the excess water
Mix in the egg, one cup mozzarella, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper.
Using your hands roll into the amount you need for base and then put the ball in the middle and push out mixture until you make a circle
Bake for 12-15mins or until golden
Remove from oven and add your toppings – this is where you can freelance from vegetarian to meat pizzas
Cook for a further 10 mins or until the cheese has that perfect glow and brown shade
And there you go – low carb – delicious treat for you when you fancy a little naughtiness.
You can package it up for work the next day and serve with a side salad or save it for about 2-3 days in an air tight container in the fridge.
As it contains no nasties and all fresh ingredients its best not to leave it too long.
