The Cauliflower Pizza Experiment

IMG_2319

I came across this odd sounding recipe for cauliflower pizza in my new cookbook, The Green Kitchen.

We just so happened to have a cauliflower in the house which had been destined for pakoras but this sounded so curious I had to try it

The recipe is very simple, just four ingredients – cauliflower, ground almonds, oregano and eggs. The cauliflower is blitzed to a fine crumb – raw – and then mixed with beaten eggs, ground almonds and oregano and squished onto a baking tray. My mix behaved very well and squished out nicely .

I baked it in the oven for about fifteen minutes.Then I filled it with sauteed  red onions and sweet little courgettes, mint and chevre (creamy goats cheese)and finished it off under the grill.

When it was ready I headed off to the Cultural Brunch In Clonakilty which is a gathering of people who all bring a dish from the country they come from to share. I’m not sure where that put me countrywise but everyone that was there was a very good guinea pig.

The pizza was sliced, could be picked up and eaten like any normal slice of pizza and it tasted delicious!

Funny thing was, when I got home I found the ground almonds still sitting in the weighing scales!!
