Everyone seems to be making cauliflower pizza bases at the moment but a lot of the recipes out there include egg. This is my version, easy and sans animal products!
Cauli and broccoli pizza base:
Handful frozen cauliflower florets,
Handful frozen broccoli florets,
1/3 cup cornmeal,
1/3 cup ground almonds,
1 teaspoon dried herbs
Salt and pepper to taste.
Whizz up the broccoli and cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles a strange green and white rice.
Stir in the dry ingredients. This should form “breadcrumbs”.
Using your hands, squish the mixture together into a dough. Again using your hands, squish into a flat circular shape and place onto a piece of greased parchment on a baking tray (I’d run out of parchment so had to use foil).
Pop into an oven at 180oC for 5 – 8 minutes
(until edges start to turn golden brown).
Flip using a fish slice and add toppings. (I used mushroom, tomato and vegan pesto). Be careful, the base is much more brittle than a traditional bread base.
Put back into the oven until the toppings are cooked.
I served mine with homemade coleslaw (made with vinaigrette rather than mayo), kale chips and roasted sprouts – just to be festive. Lovely!
