Low carb pizza for Friday nights and at 7g per pizza it’s seriously low carb.

This makes one medium pizza.

Scale up for a crowd.

We used a 20cm pizza tray.

ingredients

  • 50g almond meal
  • 100g cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • a pinch (0.4g) salt
  • a grind (0.7g) pepper
  • 1 clove (5g) garlic, fresh
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) olive oil
  • 10g parmesan cheese, grated

topping:

  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) tomato paste
  • 25g tomato
  • 25g bocconcini cheese
  • 10g parmesan cheese
  • 5 g basil

Preheat oven to 220 ̊C/425 ̊F/gas mark 7.

Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor, or grate on a coarse grater until it is a breadcrumb like consistency.

Lightly beat the egg and crush the garlic. Add the salt, pepper, parmesan, almond meal and the cauliflower.

Line a pizza tray with baking paper. Press the mixture onto the tray to about 6mm or 1/4 inch thick. Add more almond meal if the mixture is too sticky to handle.

Brush the top with the olive oil, put in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven when brown and spoon over the tomato paste. Top with tomato, sliced bocconcini and shaved parmesan. Return to the oven until the pizza is brown and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Scatter with fresh basil.
