I love pizza but I can never enjoy it. If I get one from my favorite restaurant or buy one at the store (Diaya or Amy’s), I never can eat the whole thing. If I do I feel horrible because of the sodium content in a whole pizza and honestly 1/3 of an 8in/10in pizza is like a tease. So tonight since my family is having pizza I made me an 6 inch pizza with cauliflower crust, homemade pizza sauce, diaya cheese and veggies.
Ingredients (16 inch pizza)
1/2 medium head of cauliflower
2 1/2 tbsp flaxmeal
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder1/2 tsp salt
Step 1: mix flax meal and water in a bowl and set in fridge for 30 minutes.
Step 2: cut and steam cauliflower until it almost falls apart.
Step 3 : process rolled oats in a food processor until oats achieve a flour-like texture.
Step 4: Stir the oat flour with the oregano, garlic, and salt.
Step 5: Preheat oven to 450 F.
Step 6: Once cauliflower cools, place it in a clean dish towel or cheesecloth over a sink or bowl, and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
Step 7: Place the squeezed-out cauliflower into a medium bowl and add the flax mixture.
Step 8: Mash and stir well.
Step 9: stir in the oat mixture. Form into a ball, and place on top of the parchment-lined baking sheet. Pat into a circle, to spread the circle to about 1/4 inch thick.
Step 10: Bake 25 minutes, or until lightly browned with crispy edges.
Step 11: Remove and add toppings of choice. Bake an additional 8 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes, then slice.
