Vegan Cauliflower Pizza

Vegan Cauliflower Crust PizzaI finally got around to buying a food processor! I wasn’t sure which one but after a bit of research, I settled on the Kenwood Multipro. And I love it! I’ve been so keen to try making pizza made from cauliflower rice (impossible without a processor; yes, I’ve tried!). There are hundreds of recipes out there, this is my adapted vegan take 🙂

  • 3 tablespoons milled flaxseed
  • 1 whole cauliflower, raw
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
  • 34g flour
  • 100g tomato purée
  • red onion, sliced
  • mushrooms, sliced
  • cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 100g Fry’s Polony 
  • 95g Cheezly Soya Free Cheese
  • 75g Realeat Chicken Style Pieces
  • Fresh basil to garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 8 / 450 degrees F.
  2. In the processor, blend together 2 tablespoons of milled flaxseed with 5 tablespoons of water and then put in the fridge to set. This makes 2 vegan ‘flax eggs’.
  3. Rinse out the processor bowl. Break the cauliflower into florets and blend on max speed to break up the cauliflower to the texture of rice. Transfer this ‘rice’ to a bowl and microwave for 5 minutes.
  4. Once the cauliflower rice has been cooked, allow it to cool down enough to handle. Place spoonfuls into a cloth, gather and twist the cloth at the top to close and keep twisting. This gets all of the water out of the cauliflower rice.
  5. When the rice is bone dry, put it all into a bowl with the salt, garlic powder, dried basil, dried herbs and flour. Get the flax eggs from the fridge, add those in too. Also add one more tablespoon of dry milled flaxseed.
  6. Mix it all together then spread onto a silicon baking sheet (no oil needed!).
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the edges start to turn dark.
  8. Remove from the oven, slather on the tomato purée and then your desired toppings. We used onion, mushrooms, chicken, polony, cheese and tomatoes. This is where you could go crazy with the veg! (Hubby thought pineapple would be fab next time)
  9. Put the pizza back into the oven for another 10 minutes.
  10. Once everything is melted and golden, remove from the oven, garnish with fresh peppery sweet basil and enjoy!
