Low Carbs Pizza

Ever wondered if there was an alternate/healthier version of the otherwise loaded pizza. Being on a healthy-eating spree inspires me to read and understand and appreciate these alternate ingredients.

On one of the blogs I read something about Cauliflower rice to make pizza base. It is absolutely genius and easy to put together.

You shall need: [Feeds 2]

3 cups… Cauliflower Rice [Recipe follows]

Pizza Sauce of your choice

Toppings of your choice [ I used jalapenos, fresh corn kernels, olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano and chilly flakes and some mozzarella]

2 tbsp plus more… Cheese of your choice [I used a mix of Cheddar and mozzarella]

Salt

1 tbsp… Oregano

2 eggs [ I used 1 but the binding was not upto the mark. Hence 2 eggs must go in]

Method:

  • Clean the florets of the cauliflower.
  • Pulse it in a food processor until it resembles coarse rice.
  • Boil water in a pan and dunk the cauliflower rice in for 3 min.
  • Take it out on a cheese cloth and squeeze all the water out.
  • This needs effort and is worth the hard work.
  • Once it is nice and dry, add salt, pepper, chilly flakes, oregano, cheese and 2 eggs.
  • Mix well.
  • Line a try with butter paper and spread the cauliflower mix on it evenly.
  • Bake in a 200C pre heated oven for 25-30 min or until it is nice and golden.
  • Pull it out and arrange the toppings the way you like.
  • Bake for further 15 min at 220C and it is ready to serve.
