There’s nothing more satisfying and irresistible than the cheese pull of pizza and that’s why this dish is showered with so much love all around the globe. The problem with traditional pizza is that even though it is so yummy, it packs a lot of calories. If you are trying to manage your weight then it is definitely not something that would feature in your diet plan. But we thought that everyone sh ... ould be able to have pizza even if you are on a diet and that’s precisely why we came up with this Cauliflower Crust Pizza recipe that preserves the deliciousness of the traditional pizza but without the calories. For this recipe, we will be using tomatoes, button mushrooms, regular capsicum and black pitted olives as toppings and will dice them up. To season the pizza, we will use some Italian seasoning, Oregano herbs, pepper and Red chilli flakes which will give it a robust flavour. Most of the carbs in a pizza are due to the pizza base and that is exactly what we are trying to avoid. So, we will be making the pizza base from scratch for this recipe using cauliflower to cut down on the unwanted calories. To make the base, we start by blending Cauliflower and then remove all the liquid and combine it with an egg, cheese and some seasoning. Once the base is done baking, we can start by adding all the toppings to the pizza. You can have this pizza for both lunch and dinner or even an evening snack.
