By  | 

Total Time:

40 MINUTES

Ingredients

Pizza Base Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup almond flour (or meal)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

Pizza Toppings Ingredients:

  • 4-5 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 4-5 tbsp vegan pesto
  • roasted sweet potato
  • broccoli
  • pine nuts
  • fresh basil
  • mushrooms cooked in 1 tsp olive oil,
  • salt and pepper
  • good quality extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Use a food processor to pulse the cauliflower and garlic until looks like rice. Do this in a couple of batches for consistency.
  3. Using a cheese cloth or strainer, squeeze as much water as possible out of the cauliflower.
  4. Place the cauliflower to microwave for 8 minutes until the cauliflower is cooked through.
  5. Let the cauliflower cool for about ten minutes, then mix in the eggs, almond flour oregano, salt and pepper until combined.
  6. Press the dough into a pan leaving it thicker towards the edges for a crust. The bigger your pan, the thinner the dough will be and the crispier it will be when cooked.
  7. Cook for about 20-30 minutes depending on the thickness of the crust, until it becomes evenly brown and crispy.
  8. Remove from the oven and spread dollops of the pesto and tomato sauce evenly over the crust.
  9. Swirl together using a spoon then sprinkle with desired toppings. If you cannot resist from adding cheese, add, but put it back into the oven to melt for another 5-7 minutes. Top with fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil to serve.
