Gluten-Free Pizza

I am going to keep this post super short since I am in the middle of packing off to go to my folks, keeping T constructively occupied, especially since he’s on his Diwali break and completing my design assignments. So here’s our all time favourite pizza now in a gluten fee option. It’s easy to make fresh and super healthy.

Ingredients for the crust:

  • 1 Small cauliflower, shredded
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 Pods of garlic, crushed
  • Basil, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 egg

Ingredients for the topping:

  • Home made pizza sauce (tomato puree with herbs and mild seasoning)
  • Yellow Zucchini or choice of vegetables, finely chopped
  • Mozzarella cheese

Method:

  • Either manually shred the cauliflower or in the food processor
  • Place the cauliflower in a strainer and give it a good wash, let a little water remain
  • Transfer to a glass bowl and pop it into the microwave for about 5-7 mins until tender (keep checking, careful not to burn)
  • Once cool, place the shredded cauliflower in a cheese cloth or a thin cloth and squeeze the excess water out
  • What you will now have is what’s known as ‘cauliflower rice’
  • Transfer the Cauliflower rice to a glass bowl and add the egg, garlic, cheese, chopped herb and seasoning
  • Incorporate it evenly until its even
  • Place a little amount of mixture on a baking parchment, oil the parchment a little first
  • Press and shape into a pizza crust
  • Bake in a preheated oven only until slightly browned, it should take approximately 15 minutes

  • Pull it out and once cooled, slather on some pizza sauce and toppings
  • Pop it in again and bake for about 8-10 minutes or until it looks cooked

This pizza is perfectly adult friendly too. Top off the ‘fresh out of the oven’ pizza with some rocket leaves and a drizzle of vinaigrette. Excellent veggie pizza for the toddler & a guilt free gorging option for the parents. :)
