When it comes to healthy eating, we don’t believe in diets or deprivation and sometimes all it takes is a bit of creative adaptation. So instead of denying yourself the pizza you so desperately crave, why not try whipping up this healthy cauliflower and veggie pizza instead?

1 Head of Cauliflower (roughly chopped)
100g Ground Almonds
1 Egg (lightly beaten)
1 tbsp Dried Oregano
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Pepper
¾ Cup Tomato Paste
2 tsp Pesto
1 Zucchini (sliced)
1 Cup of Mushrooms (sliced)
1 Cup Capsicum (sliced)
½ Cup of Grated Cheese
Preheat oven to 180 C.
Place chopped cauliflower in a food processor and blitz until rice consistency. Tip blitzed cauliflower in a bowl, cover with cling wrap and microwave on high for 5-6 minutes until soft.
Remove from the microwave and tip into a tea towel. Wring the tea towel and remove as much moisture and liquid as you can from the cauliflower, then transfer to a clean bowl.
Stir in ground almonds, egg, oregano, salt and pepper and stir until combined.
Line a tray with baking paper and grease with butter or olive oil. Spoon mixture onto the tray and use your hands to spread out a 30cm round. Bake for 15-20 minutes until it starts to crisp.
Remove from the oven and add tomato paste, pesto, zucchini, mushrooms, capsicum and cheese. Bake for a further 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted.
