Then, there was the 2 ingredient pizza dough recipe (just flour and yoghurt – who knew?).

Well today we have another great flour-free recipe for you to try – using grated cauliflower as the base!

That’s pizza with Virtually NO CARBS – it is made with cauliflower which has only 1.9g of carbs per 100g versus around 50g of carbs for 100g of bread based pizza – and is on our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges

Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200C and line a tray with baking paper. Spray the paper with olive oil spray and place in the oven to heat up.
  2. Cut the cauliflower florets and discard the stalk.
  3. Grate the cauliflower using a food processor until it resembles rice.
  4. Place in a microwave safe container and cover with plastic wrap, microwave for 8 minutes.
  5. Allow the cauliflower to cool and then pour it into a tea towel.
  6. Wring the water out of the tea towel until your cauliflower looks dry. Place in a bowl.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients and mix with your hands.
  8. Place the dough on the baking tray and flatten out with your hands into a pizza shape.
  9. Bake in the oven until golden brown – this can take from 10-20 minutes depending on your oven so best to keep an eye on it.
  10. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly.
  11. Top with your favourite toppings – try tomato paste, red onion, red capsicum, sliced bocconcini cheese and a sprinkling of fresh chives.
  12. Bake in the oven until the crusts are golden and the topping has melted to your liking.
  13. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before slicing and serving.
