I will take healthy pizza any day of the week. No sugar – no bad oils – no carbs – gluten-free…winner! This grilled mediterranean pizza is a veg power house, topped with goodness that not only taste amazing, but is amazing for you!
The cauliflower crust is full of flavour and holds it’s strength even when it’s layered with the veggies…Long gone are the days where all you could change on your pizza was the topping and whether it was a ‘normal’ or ‘thin & crispy’ crust (yes I am talking about Pizza Express people) – now you can put just about any flavour or seasoning you want in your crust AND create a unique topping. All the while making it healthy…who and what is pizza express I hear you say?!
It took me a good 3 times to get this crust right. In my defence it was partly due to the fact my oven has a mind of it’s own (SO very helpful when I cook every day!) but more importantly because cauliflower sure does love to retain water! I didn’t realise how much you had to squeeeeze out the water and also how important it is to thoroughly bake the crust before layering on the toppings – especially when mine come on thick and fast!
But finally it is my PERFECT cauliflower pizza and I am simply in love with it! The grilled vegetables have a lovely crunch to them and full of flavour, without having to cook them in a mountain of oil (a small dollop of coconut oil does the trick). Also, as an aside – my intention was to add red onions to the topping but to be honest, I was so wrapped up in the excitement of getting the cauliflower crust spot on that I completely forgot! So if you are a fan of them like myself, just slice them finely and grill with the other veg as per directions below.
I hope you love it as much as I do!
