Cauliflower based Pizza

Makes 1 pizza:

1 medium head cauliflower (enough for 2 cups cauliflower rice)
1 egg                                               
1/2 cup parmesan
1/4 cup mozzarella
A tablespoon of Dairygold
Generous pinch of salt
Generous pinch of black pepper
1 garlic clove minced


In a processor, blend up cauliflower florets. Steam cauliflower by placing in microwave in a heat-proof bowl -you don't need to add water or cover- and heat 7-8 minutes, stirring once. Allow to fully cool. (you can do this a few hours ahead of time, just cover with film.
Preheat oven to 180c.

Place 2 cups of cauliflower rice in the center of a piece of an old dish towel (Make sure that when you are done to shake out cloth fully and then wash as it can start to smell). Create a ball with the rice inside of the cloth and ring out the water. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP–IT WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOUR CRUST! You need to remove as much moisture as possible- continue to ring until water stops coming out of cloth.

Transfer to a bowl and mix will all other ingredients.

Spread out dough on a pizza pan, lined with parchment paper that has been greased with Dairygold.

Bake 9-12 minutes, until firm and cooked through. Remove from oven and add desired toppings, then pop it back into the oven for about 10 mins until cheese is melted.
