I have been thinking about this making recipe for a long time – a cauliflower based pizza with potato on top. It’s kind of opposite from a normal pizza, no dough, no tomato sauce but this doesn’t make it in any way inferior, in fact it’s probably nutritionally superior and it’s quicker to make. Total comfort food. It definitely got the thumbs up as it was eaten in a flash.
Here’s the recipe
1 small cauliflower
3 tbs polenta
1 tsp dried oregano
1 level tsp salt
100ml olive oil
100g cheese – I used cheddar
3 cloves garlic
a few sprigs thyme
Pre-heat the oven 200c
Rinse the cauliflower and break into florets. Blitz in a food processor until the consistency of breadcrumbs.
Tip the cauliflower into a bowl and mix in the eggs. Stir in the salt, oregano and polenta. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and tip the mix onto the tray. Press down and smooth out with your hands to form a rectangle about 1cm thick- you could make it round if you prefer . Tidy up the sides and bake for 15 minutes or until the base becomes firm and lightly golden around the edge.
Peel the potatoes and garlic and slice very thinly. Put them into a bowl and drizzle over enough olive oil to coat them. Add some salt and crumble in the thyme. Toss well together. Finely grate the cheese and toss again.
Arrange the potatoes in a thin layer, overlapping on top.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and slightly crispy at the edge
