Feel like pizza? For the Vegetarians, actually for everyone, here is a simple low-carb recipe that that is quick to make and a can replace those heavy duty pizzas on a Friday Night.

Ingredients

  • 420g mozzarella cheese
  • 1 kg cauliflower
  • 50g parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggsHimalayan salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • dried italian herbs
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • pinch paprika
  • 2 garlic – Optional
    2 cups tomato passata
  • 4 cup caper berries
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 avocado

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line 2 baking sheets with greased baking paper.
  2. For the base: Grate the cauliflower, then steam until soft and set aside until cooled. Wrap the cauliflower in a clean tea towel; squeeze and twist to remove as much water as possible.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a bowl. Add the 220g grated mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan, beaten eggs, salt and Italian herbs. Stir well to combine.
  4. Spread the cauliflower cheese mixture on the baking sheet. Shape the mixture into a crust that’s fairly thin but has no holes. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Preheat the oven grill, flip the base onto a second greased baking tray, and grill until the “underside” is golden and crispy. Remove from oven.
  5. For the tomato sauce: heat oil in a pot, add the tomato paste, paprika and crushed garlic, cook for 2 minutes. Add the passata and season to taste, simmer for 5 minutes, then set aside. Top the base with spoonfuls of tomato sauce, sprinkle with remaining torn mozzarella, roasted red onions quarters and caper berries. Grill for 5 minutes, remove from the oven and top with avocado slices, allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
