Cauliflower pizza is my favorite thing to make!!! I have almost FINALLY perfected it and I’m so excited about it!! When I added the pineapple and bacon it adds the best sweetness and saltiness! A cheesecloth is key because it helps rid the cauliflower of all its water to help make a crispier crust.
1 medium-sized cauliflower, grated (by hand or in a food processor until it’s rice-sized, but not pulverised) and par-cooked, well drained, cooled slightly and water squeezed out.
100 g Goat’s cheese (or 1 cup grated Cheddar).
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
1/4 cup homemade tomato sauce (or 12 oz tomato paste).
3 pieces of cooked bacon or 100 g of ham
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese.
1/4 cup Haloumi cheese
Basil and oregano to taste
To make the Ham and Cheese Cauliflower Pizza:
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. In a bowl, mix the cauliflower with the cheese and egg, and season with salt and pepper.
2. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, shape the mixture into 1 large pizza base or 4 small crusts. The bases should be about 1–1 1/2 cm thick. Bake for about 30–35 minutes, or until firm and golden, then remove from oven.
3. To make the topping, smear the Homemade Tomato Sauce or tomato paste over the base then sprinkle with oregano and basil. Sprinkle half the cheese and then scatter the ham on top. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese.
4. Bake for a further 8–10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and serve warm.
