Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Crust
If you somehow still haven’t tried my original Cauliflower Pizza Crust it’s one of the easiest pizza recipes to make you should absolutely bookmark it… or try my adapted vegan version of it. This Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Crust is free from everything, including eggs, gluten, dairy, nuts, sugar, grains + it’s low carb. I’ve been making this pizza recipe for months and months, but am only getting around to sharing it now. Every time I make it I like to try new toppings, some of my favourites are; roasted pumpkin, avocado, olives, leftover shredded chicken, salami or feta cheese (if you eat meat/ cheese), roasted tomatoes, tomato paste, rocket and fresh herbs and even veggies like roasted broccoli and asparagus. The point is, have fun with your pizza and top it with whatever you love.
Makes 1 large pizza crust
2 cups grated cauliflower
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp psyllium husk
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup green banana flour (I use this green banana flour from Woolworths)
1/2 cup water + 1 Tbsp
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried herbs
Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a pizza tray with baking paper.
Combine all the ingredients using your hands until it forms a sticky-ish dough. If it’s too wet, add a small sprinkle of banana flour and mix through again using your hands. If it’s slightly too dry add in 1/2 - 1 Tbsp water and re-mix again.
Place a little extra olive oil onto your hands and use your hands to press the dough out onto the lined pizza tray and shape it into a circle evenly.
Place the tray in the oven and cook for 20-23 minutes.
When it’s ready, remove it from the oven.
Top with your favourite toppings and put it back in the oven until the toppings are ready and cooked to your liking.
Remove from the oven and slice the pizza up into even slices.
This step is important if you want a crispy base - heat a large frying pan on medium heat. Add a good drizzle of olive oil and fry the base of each piece of pizza until crunchy and golden brown.
