Cauliflower Crust Pizza


2 cups riced cauliflower
1 egg
1 egg white
2 tablespoons oat flour (or ground almond flour for an even lower carb content)
1 tablespoon grated parmesan
1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs
1/4 teaspoon crushed chilli
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius.
2. Make your cauliflower rice by either grating the pieces using a cheese grater or pulsing the florets in a food processor until finely chopped.

3. Add the riced cauliflower to a microwaveable bowl, cover and vent and microwave on high for 4 minutes, stirring halfway through.

4. Transfer the cooked cauliflower to a clean dish towel. Wrap the cauliflower in the towel, and squeeze out the excess water. Its important to remove as much as possible.

5. Put the cauliflower back into the bowl and add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

6. Place your cauliflower dough on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. I made the mistake of putting mine in a greased pizza tray and it did stick a little!

7. Using a spoon, spread the mixture out into the shape of a round pizza. You can also use your spoon to create a crust at the edges, this will also help with even cooking throughout if you make it a little thinner in the middle and thicker round the edges.

8. Place the pan into the oven, and bake the pizza for 40 minutes.

9. Remove the pizza and top with your favourite toppings, I pre cooked mine and just put it al back into the oven to heat through.

10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
