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 firmer crust.. the 3rdItime i decided to add dried herbs (like my cloud bread pizza).  So after 5 attempts …

wrapI,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..

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