Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 Medium Cauliflower Head rinsed
  • 3/4 cup Almod Flour
  • 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Organic Eggs beaten
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Dry Basil
  • 1 tsp Dry Oregano

For the Toppings

  • 3 tbsp Tomato Sauce
  • 1 cup Fresh Greens mixed (spinach, chard or any other available) 
  • 1 small Broccoli Head finely diced
  • 10 Cherry Tomatoes quartered
  • 1 cup Cooked Chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp Pesto
  • Shaved Parmesan
  • Basil Leaves fresh

For the Pesto

  • 1 cup Basil Leaves fresh
  • 1 cup Spinach fresh
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 cup Lightly Toasted Walnuts
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Water

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the cauliflower into florets and add them into the food processor.
  • Pulse to obtain a rice-like texture, paying attention not to over-process.
  • Transfer the cauliflower rice into a large bowl, and add the rest of the crust ingredients.
  • Mix to obtain a sticky batter, then place it on the baking sheet and flatten it with a large spoon, to obtain a pizza shape (the texture is wetter than a normal flour one, but this will be solved in the oven).
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until golden.
  • Meanwhile, add the pesto ingredients into the food processor and process to obtain a smooth liquid.
  • Remove the dough from the oven, add the toppings, drizzle with pesto and serve warm.
