Cauliflower pizza base with blue cheese, pear and walnuts

Cauliflower pizza base with blue cheese, pear and walnuts

This is the best invention ever! Especially if you are following a gluten-free diet. Who would have thought you could make a pizza base out of a vegetable, yet it’s so delicious that you won’t think twice about wishing you made it with flour and yeast. And yes, you can pick it up just like a real pizza!

Serves 2 | Prep 30 mins | Cook 30 mins

For the cauliflower base:
1 medium cauliflower head
50g grated vegetarian mozzarella cheese
1 free-range egg, beaten
garlic granules
sea salt and pepper, to taste
olive oil, mild

For the topping:
1 pear, thinly sliced
50g vegetarian blue cheese, crumbled
20g walnuts
20g grated vegetarian mozzarella cheese
rocket leaves, to garnish

1 Preheat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2 Wash and thoroughly dry the cauliflower. 
Cut off the florets – you don’t need much stem. Pulse in your food processor for about 30 seconds, until you get powdery snowlike cauliflower. Place the cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl, cover, microwave for 4 minutes or steam. When cooked, place on to a clean tea towel and allow to cool.

3 Now wrap up the cauliflower in the tea towel and wring out all the liquid. Place the cauliflower into a bowl. Add the 50g of grated mozzarella cheese. Beat the egg, season generously with sea salt, white
pepper and garlic granules. Pour on to the cauliflower mixture and combine well.

4 Now use your hands to form the ‘dough’ into a crust on the parchment paper (aim for about 20–25cm). Pat it down thoroughly so it’s tightly formed together – don’t make it too thick or thin. Bake for 20 minutes, until it starts to turn golden brown.

5 Remove from the oven. Leave the base to cool for 5–10 minutes, then carefully turn it over and place back on the tray. 
Drizzle a little olive oil and sea salt on the base, then top with the pear, blue cheese and walnuts. Season with a little black pepper and olive oil. Top with the 20g of grated mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven for 8–10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Garnish with rocket and serve.
