Cauliflower crust pizza

I was very happy when my neighbour gave me a piece of his cauliflower pizza to try. I knew that it was something my children would love and it is ideal for those following a gluten-free or grain-free diet – or just a healthier diet. We make this at least once a fortnight and the children love it. Having followed a gluten-free diet for a number of years, pizza was one of the things I did miss, so although this doesn’t taste exactly like ‘real’ pizza, it feels really good to be able to bring back pizza night. It is also a great dish for Meatless Monday, or whichever days you choose to eat less meat.

Cauliflower is one of the most nutritious foods you can eat. It is extremely high in Vitamin C and an excellent source of Vitamin K and folate, choline, potassium, Vitamin B6 and fibre. Several dozen studies link cauliflower to cancer prevention, probably because of the high levels of antioxidants it contains. It is though high in fibre, which is considered very healthy but which may be problematic for some tummies.

Recipe tips
You can use whatever topping you would normally put on a pizza, choose your favourite. We like roasted pepper strips, sun-dried tomatoes, chicken and mozzarella, aubergine, grated vegetables and homemade meatballs on our pizzas. We made the pizza pictured without tomato sauce or extra cheese. Leave a comment below with your favourite topping.
