Cauliflower Pizza ¨crust¨ by Virag Bodi

  • Spring is here, so it's  high time to loose that baby fat and get ready for the  bikini season. Cauliflower pizza is great for those low carb diets, can be the perfect work lunch plus it's yummy.

    Cauliflower pizza (crust)

 Gluten free can be made vegan and
  • 3 cups cauliflower (500 grams)
  • 3 tablespoons flax seeds 
  • 1 cup millet (or rice or chickpea) flour OR 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil 

  1. Preheat oven to 200 º C or 390 º F.
  2. Cut off the florets of the cauliflower, you don't need much stem. Place the florets in a blender or food processor and pulse until you get cauliflower crumbs.
  3. Place the cauliflower crumbs in a non-stick pan (with the  oil) and cook them over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Stir constantly.
  4. When the cauliflower is cold, place it in a napkin, cheesecloth or strainer to remove as much water as you can.
  5. Place the flax seeds in a blender and blend until smooth. 
  6. In a big bowl, add the cauliflower crumbs, flour or eggs. You can also add salt, spices or herbs. Mix all the ingredients with your hands. If the dough is sticky, add more flour. 
  7. Place the pizza crusts onto a baking sheet with baking paper. Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown
  8. Do as you would with a normal pizza crust and bake it for 10 minutes more.
