Gluten Free? Don’t enjoy the sprouted pizza bases or other gluten free options available (full of white rice flour!)? Wanting a pizza base with meaningful nutrients rather than just something to hold toppings?

This base is a healthful way to enjoy guilt free pizza at home. The whole family will love it. Double the ingredients and make two or three bases from the mixture to feed the family . Or if making dinner for one, make extra and have pizza for breakfast!! Naughty? No way! Cauliflower contains an impressive amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for overall well being.

Got bits and pieces of meat and vegetables in the fridge? There’s no rules for toppings for this pizza, anything goes. Some ideas: Chicken, ham, bacon, fish, beef strips, cheese, herbs, spices, apricot, pineapple, mushrooms, onions, capsicum, spinach, tomatoes, sauerkraut, nuts, seeds – and much more!

Get the whole family involved – I like to make the bases and get the kids to put their own toppings on (including greens!) A sense of achievement goes a long way, and I’m creating interest and curiosity for healthful cooking with my children.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 medium cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 tsp quality salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp melted butter or ghee or olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Cut cauliflower into florets and steam until soft enough to crush easily.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan bake.  In a medium to large bowl add all dry ingredients.
  • Once cauliflower is cooked, add to a tea towel or muslin cloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible – there will be a lot!
  • Add cauliflower to dry ingredients, mix together (will look kind of like breadcrumbs) – then add butter and mix to form a dough.
  • On an oven tray lined with brown baking paper, spread dough out using fingers and form a round base approximately 1/2 a centremetre thick.  (The thinner it is, the crispier it will be)
  • Bake for around 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden.  Remove from oven and add desired toppings (I had mushroom, spinach, chicken, ham, haloumi cheese).  Bake for a further 10 minutes until toppings cooked.
