Finally Made A Gluten Free Cauliflower Crust Pizza!

image

I have seen cauliflower crust pizzas online so many times and have always been intrigued.  So this week I decided to see what the excitement was about! 

After making it! I see why this new gluten free type of pizza has really taken off. Once again easy to make and a very cheeky sneaky way to get children and adults alike to eat extra vegetables.  Perfect for those who have a gluten free diet!  This was my first attempt so I didn’t go all out on the pizza topping and stuck to the classic Margherita.   Now that it worked well, I shall be experimenting with all sorts of funky toppings!

I hope you give this a go!  It’s well worth it!  Have a stunning day!

Grated Mozzarella or Cheddar cheese

• Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until the base is golden brown

• Once cauliflower base is ready,  spread on thr pizza sauce, throw in the cheese and place back into the oven for a further 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted

Gently slice up the pizza and leave to cool a little.  Slowly transfer the slices onto a plate as the base is very soft and crumbly
