Low Carb Hi- Fibre Cauliflowe​r crust pizza by Grace Heng


1 head cauliflower (buy organic from The Organic Grocer at Pasarbella!)
10 almonds (can be omitted)
1 teaspoon each of spices (any kind)- my favourites are basil, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, black pepper, oregano
I teaspoon olive oil
Tomato Sauce
(I highly recommend Alce Nero's Organic Tomato Sauce with Basil (pictured) because this brand doesn't add salt or sugar. If you look carefully at other brands' labels, the ingredient list can contain up to 8 ingredients in one bottle and is packed with salt and sugar!)
Mozzarella or Parmesan
Pizza toppings of choice.
1. Remove cauliflower stem and cut the florets
2. Wash and remove any moldy bits
3. Pulse through the food processor till it becomes small and grainy
4. Place cauliflower on a clean washcloth and wring all the excess water from it.
When cauliflower is dry, place in a large bowl
6. If using the almonds, pulse it in food processor till it becomes fine powder and put in bowl
7. Add spices, oil and egg
8. Mix well. I recommend using hands so you can feel for large cauliflower bits.
9. Press mixture into a circular pizza shape on a piece of parchment paper.
(Or square, or use cookie cutters to make fun pizza shapes for kids)
10. Place parchment in preheated oven for 10 min
11. Remove tray from oven and top with tomato sauce and cheese
(I made mine half with cheese and half without to see if there was any difference taste wise)
12. Send pizza back into the oven for another 5 min or till cheese melts
13. Top pizza with toppings of choice

Over here, I topped it with leftovers I found in the fridge like a small piece of salmon, portobello mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and lightly caramelized onions. Enjoy :)
