Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower crust pizza, it just sounds wrong, doesn’t it. I’ve been trying to perfect this for a few weeks and pizza finaltoday’s creation was by far the best. (so good I made 2 and kept a base for the next day) .. so I,ll tell you about my past efforts.. the first attempt I used fresh cauliflower and it took ages to blend..

I decided to experiment with frozen,, with much better results.. . the 2nd time I didn’t wring out the cauliflower with a tea towel.. this is so important for a crispy crust.. the 3rd time i decided to add dried herbs (like my cloud bread pizza).  So after 5 attempts…

I,ve came up with this one…  This is a great alternative to pizza, but it isn’t a pizza (if you fancy a pizza , just make this one..) if your looking for a guilt free one for yourself , that hides the veggies for the kiddies.. then this is a great option.. “yum” and I ate a whole one for lunch between the two of us. And wait till I tell you what iIdid with the extra, crust. I made a sweet chilli ham wrap for lunch the next day.. which was surprisingly moreish..wrap

( for any slimming world folks The cauliflower crust its self is free..  can use the cheese as your healthy extra a  )

Get messy .. have fun .. one yummy mummy

  1. I tried a couple of times pizza with brocoli on it and it was quite good so maybe cauliflower could be a good option too. Thanks for sharing the recipe! xx
