If you have not tried cauliflower pizza yet and you still binge on high carbs, this will be your favourite healthy pizza recipe!
I am a Vata and Pitta (in Ayurvedic Doshas-Constitutions), and so I feel bloated with Cauliflower so I rarely eat it. And when i do, I add spices like cumin, coriander, fennel to help digestion. I also drink a lot Ayurvedic tea (CCF: Cumin-Coriande-Fennel Tea) with it, again to support digestion.
How to Make A Cauliflower Pizza?
Get 1 medium size cauliflower and then:
🍕Grate it or chop it in a food processor to make small pieces like rice, about 2 cups,
🍕mix it with 2 eggs (or plant eggs – mixing 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 1 tablespoon of water and waiting 5 minutes to settle)
🍕add 6tbs of any flour of your choice preferably a lower carbohydrate nut-seed flour like flaxseed or almond.
🍕Add spices like salt&peppers&red pepper flakes. Add also cumin and fennel (grounded) to ease digestion.
🍕Mix them all well and then place it into a baking tray, press well with your fingers and bake for 30min at 160degrees celcius.
🍕Meanwhile prepare toppings, mozerella, parmesan, tomatoes, mushrooms, tofu, peppers, spices like black-red pepper, oregano, etc…
When the base is cooked, first add a few spoons of tomato-pepper paste (I also added a touch of thyme into this), then add the toppings.
🍕Bake again until the cheese melt and veggies cook, about 10min.
🙃OK, sure this is not a real pizza of course but it was a delicious treat for my weekend!
💚Cauliflower is a life saver in low carb diets as pizza base, replacement for rice, bulgur or couscous. Check out my blog for baked cauliflower and salad called “kisir”.
In Turkey we cook it mainly with minced meat-tomato-pepper paste sauce and very popular in my house!
💚 Long live veggies!
