Cauliflower Pizza

I feel a bit guilty calling this a pizza because really it’s not really a pizza but instead a cauliflower in a pizza disguise. However, it’s still pretty darn tasty despite the illusion.

I have a love/hate relationship with cauliflower pizza as sometimes it can all go very wrong! But I have finally found a recipe that works for me. So here it is! the perfect cauliflower pizza crust.

The most important tricks to remember when making a cauliflower pizza are:

  1. Squeeze all the water out of the purèed cauliflower or it will not be crisp when it is cooked and will fall apart.
  2. Don’t go overboard with the sauce and toppings. Cauliflower is a moist vegetable so just put a thin layer of tomato sauce or pesto over it before putting a few toppings of choice on.
  3. I have also tried this recipe with vegan cheese and it works just as well. I think almost any cheese would work with this recipe actually.

Some of my favourite toppings are:

  1. Prosciutto and FIGS. This is seriously my favourite topping. The figs caramelize perfectly in the oven and create a jam like texture. It’s to die for, you must try it.
  2. Prosciutto, olives and sun-dried tomatoes.
  3. Fresh cherry tomatoes, wilted spinach and an egg cracked in the middle.
  4. Pesto base with pine nuts, rocket and capsicum.
  5. Chickpeas rolled in sumac with butternut squash.
