Happy weekend guys! Today’s recipe is Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza – topped up with salami, melted cheese, peppers & cherry tomato, this gluten-free pizza is bursting with flavours!
This pizza is like no other! The crust is not as dry as the original pizza crust (no flour, remember). This mushroom & cauliflower crust is super moist and soft and almost falling apart so I recommend using a fork. Does that make it a tart? I’m not sure to be honest. I thought it’s more like a pizza. 🙂 Whatever you choose to call it, this meal is delicious. It’s gluten-free too. I think I already mention that. :-)Bear in mind though that many of the salami & sausages contain gluten so check first if you’ve got intolerance.
It took me about 5 minutes to blitz the crust ingredients and place the crust to bake in the oven. In 20 minutes the crust is done, all you have to do is to arrange the topping and cook for another 10 minutes. Not only tasty and healthy but quite simple!
For the pizza crust I used eggs, Parmesan cheese, passata seasoning and of course cauliflower and mushrooms. I simply blitz everything together in my blender, baked the crust, topped it up and bake a few more minutes. From all of our family it seemed I was the biggest fan of this pizza so I almost finished it by myself. 🙂
The toppings I used were salami, Emmental cheese (mild Cheddar works too), cherry tomatoes, peppers and some fresh rocket. You can always add more toppings too or skip the salami for a vegetarian version, whatever you fancy, really! 🙂
