Ingredients
Ingredients
1 cauliflower
1 tsp rapeseed oil
75g red onion, thinly sliced
150g red pepper, thinly sliced
150g courgette, diced
2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 heaped tsp dried oregano
1 egg, beaten
15g Parmesan, finely grated
50g reduced-fat mozzarella, thinly sliced
6-8 fresh basil leaves, torn
half tsp chilli flakes (optional)
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Remove the stalks from the cauliflower, break into large pieces and hand grate or blitz in a food processor.
  2. Add the cauliflower to a bowl, cover with clingfilm and pierce the film a couple of times. Cook in the microwave on high for 4-5 minutes. Allow to cool.
  3. Once completely cooled, place the cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and squeeze over the sink to remove the excess water.
  4. Meanwhile make the pizza topping. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion, red pepper and courgette for 4-5 minutes until starting to brown. Add the tomatoes, garlic and oregano and cook for another 2 minutes. Mix well and set aside.
  5. Add the cauliflower to a bowl with the egg and Parmesan. Mix well.
  6. Line a round baking tray or pizza sheet approximately 25cm in diameter with non-stick baking paper. Spread the cauliflower, to a thickness of ¾cm, onto it. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and top with the vegetables and mozzarella slices. Bake for a further 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the basil leaves and chilli flakes, if using.
Chefs tips
  • If you don't have a microwave, steam the cauliflower, in step 2, for 2 minutes.
  • Add some finely chopped fresh chilli to the vegetables, in step 4, to really spice it up.
  • With any pizza, if you cook the vegetables first then add them to the base you can get more onto your pizza.
