You will need:
- one cauliflower head
- 1 egg
- chili flakes and choice of herbs e.g. oregano
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
- pizza toppings of your choice
Heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Choose a small to medium-sized cauliflower or use half of a large one – chop up roughly (you can also make use of any stalks). Set a pot of water to boil and then drop in the cauliflower pieces for about 4 minutes until they just start to soften slightly. You don’t want them to get too soft.
Drain the cauliflower pieces and let them cool. When cool, use the blender to make a sort of cauliflower snow (did you manage to read that without smiling?). These will look like flakes. Transfer to a large bowl and add the whisked egg, herbs, spices and cheese to make a watery paste.
Use spray oil or spread some butter on a baking sheet, then transfer your mixture to this baking sheet. Spread thinly with a fork to make the size and shape of a regular pizza, being careful not to spread too thinly or make gaps in your ‘dough’.
Cook for about 7-10 minutes in the oven until it starts to brown. Remove from the oven, let it cool for 15 minutes or so, then add your desired toppings. I went for tomato sauce, caramelized aubergines and a sort of cheddar cheese with pistachios.
Place back in the oven for another 5 minutes until the cheese melts and starts to brown.
