Ever since we have been staying at home I started doing some live cooking sessions on my Instagram account. They take place every Thursday at 18:00h. If you haven’t yet, I invite you to join me. This Thursday (30.04) we will make healthy ice-cream.
I didn’t quite plan for it, but my daughter has been requesting to be in the live cooking sessions and she seems to enjoy it a lot. And while this is challenging in a way – managing a three year old, while cooking live – I actually have been loving having my little helper by my side. We usually cook together anyway, so it is not that much different, besides the fact that we have a live audience. 🙂
I wanted to share the recipe for the cauliflower pizza we made a few weeks ago. It is really not difficult to make, and my daughter liked it a lot.
Here’s what you need.
- For the crust:
- 550g fresh cauliflower florets (frozen works too)
- 100g chickpea flour (I used a measuring cup of 100ml so not sure if it equals 100g)
- 1 organic, free-range egg (or flax egg if not eating eggs)
- 1 tsp sea salt, dried oregano, basil and marjoram each
- 1 tsp nutritional yeast
- Blend the cauliflower florets in a blend until they resemble rice. 2. Place in a steamer and steam for 10-15 min until soft. I used the steam oven from Miele.
- Once the cauliflower rice has cooled down, place in a cheese cloth and squeeze out all the water. This is important to prevent the crust from becoming soggy!
- Beat the egg in a bowl, add the dried cauliflower rice and the chickpea flour. Mix well. Add the herbs, sea salt and nutritional yeast and mix. It should be a little crumbly but when you press it down it should stick together.
- Place the “dough” on a parchment paper and spread it out until it’s about 2,5cm thick and form a round pizza crust.
- Bake in a preheat oven at 210 degrees for 30 minutes until the crust becomes a little brown and crispy. Add any toppings you like: marinara sauce or green pesto as long as you avoid adding too liquid sauces or veggies as it will affect the crust.
If you make it, let me know how it turned out.
