Hi Cake Snobs! A different kind of post for you today, about healthy baking but nothing sweet GASP! As you know i’m on a healthy kick to counteract the cakes I bake, so last night I set to work on a food that I haven’t had since August… PIZZA!
We all love a greasy slice of the good stuff, but I was determined to make a low fat version. After scanning the web, I decided to make a cauliflower crust pizza (despite not being a lover of cauliflower!)
I set about making the crust by blitzing an extra large cauliflower down into “rice.” You can also do this by grating it if you don’t have a food processor. I then cooked the rice to soften it in the microwave for about 8 mins. I then mixed in 3 beaten eggs, (enough to help your dough form a thick consistency) a handful or half fat cheese and various herbs as well as salt to make it into a dough.
I spread this out on 2 baking sheets covered with parchment paper and baked at 200oC for 30 mins. Whilst this was baking, I sauteed mushrooms and spinach with garlic to make my toppings. You can use whatever you want, just make sure it’s cooked first. I then took the dough out and spread it with tomato puree and passata and topped with another sprinkle of cheese and the veg. I then grilled it for a few mins to melt the toppings and served with stir fried cabbage and curly kale! So good I could only eat half.
This recipe made 2 pizzas for me as I used a HUGE cauliflower so mummy and I got to have one each! It actually tasted really good, not like pizza but not like cauliflower either! I will definitely be making this again.
