- 1 cauliflower head, cut into small florets
- 1 egg
- 50g (1.7oz) grated cheese
- ½ tsp. sea salt (I recommend this one)
- ½ tsp. dried oregano
- ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
- garnish (to taste)
- In a blender, blend cauliflower into small rice-like pieces.
- Put blended cauliflower into a pan and cook approximately 8 minutes until tender.
- When cauliflower is tender and is begins turning brown, place onto a cloth to get all of the moisture out- the drier the cauliflower, the better.
- When properly dried, put cauliflower into a bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- Put dough onto a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper) and spread the dough into a pizza shape.
- Bake at 220 degrees Celsius (425 °F) for about 15 minutes – until golden.
- Next, top the pizza with desired ingredients (tomato purée, ham, spinach, corn, mushrooms...) and bake for another 7 to 10 minutes.
