Monday Motivation: Cauliflower Pizza Bases
It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for some Monday Motivation! As it’s half-term, Bjournal thought we would provide you with a dinner that the kids can help with and that doesn’t compromise your diet. Making your own pizza is a great activity to do with your kids, but you can make it that little bit healthier by using cauliflower as a base instead of dough. Here’s a great way to make a cauliflower base, and then the rest is up to you!
590g cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 a large head)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
295g shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425ºF (Gas Mark 7).
- Grate the cauliflower using a box grater until you have two cups of cauliflower crumbles. Place in a large bowl and microwave for seven to eight minutes, or until soft. Remove from the microwave and let cool.
- Mix in the egg, 235g mozzarella, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Once combined, pat into a 10-inch round on the prepared pizza pan. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
- This is where your kids come in – let them add their own toppings to the pizza and then pop in the oven for another ten minutes.
