After having devoured a not-so-healthy pizza yesterday evening, I think it’s only natural that I share this recipe with you.
Now, I’m going to have to be honest. This pizza recipe didn’t go down well with my brothers. But then again, most boys don’t even think a healthy pizza recipe should even exist so I guess that really says it all.
If you like to eat healthily but still seem to have a weak spot for pizzas (a bit like me), then this recipe is definitely worth giving a try – don’t worry, it won’t kill you!
Here’s what you need for the pizza base:
- Half a head of cauliflower, chopped
- 65g grated cheese
- 5g chopped parsley
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- Salt & pepper to taste (optional)
- Preheat oven to 230°C.
- Put the cauliflower in a food processor and blend until shredded (it should look a bit like rice).
- Boil this in an inch of water and let it cook for no more than 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and drain into a strainer.
- Transfer to a clean dishtowel, wrap it up and twist it until all the excess moisture is out. The more liquid comes out, the better!
- Put in a bowl and mix it with the rest of your ingredients – it’s okay to use your hands.
- Once the mixture begins to hold together, put it onto a prepared baking sheet (without the baking paper it will stick so make sure you don’t leave it out).
- Press and shape it into the pizza crust of your desire and then bake for about 20 minutes or until the crust is firm and golden brown on top.
- Remove from oven to add some sauce with your favourite toppings.
- Bake for an additional 5 -10 minutes until toppings are cooked.
- Slice and serve when ready.
Hopefully you get the chance to give this a try. If you’re adventurous with your pizza toppings this recipe could make for the perfect pizza – that’s what I try to tell myself anyways!
