Meals for Tots: Rainbow Pizza on a Crispy Cauliflower Base

Tonight I decided to have a go at creating a rainbow themed pizza on a crispy, cauliflower pizza base. The pizza was served with homemade kumara chips (with a sprinkle of sea salt and rosemary), as well as some pumpkin hummus for dipping. 

Here's how you can make your own rainbow pizza at home

Ingredients for pizza base 

1 large cauliflower 
2 cloves of garlic (thinly grated)
2 free range eggs 
3/4 cup parmesan cheese 
1 tsp of rosemary (or herbs of your choice)
Pink salt

Pizza toppings and sauce

Cherry tomatoes - sliced
Orange capsicum - diced
Sweetcorn pieces
Baby spinach 
Eggplant - thinly sliced 

Your choice of pizza sauce or tomato paste. 


Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200C on bake. 
2. Blitz cauliflower in the food processor until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. 
3. Squeeze excess liquid from the cauliflower using paper towels. 
4. Return cauliflower to the food process and add eggs, parmesan, herbs and a sprinkle of salt. 
5. Mix until well combined. 
6. Line a tray with baking paper. 
7. Turn the mixture out onto the baking tray and press it into a large circle. Make sure it is no more than 1 cm thick. 
8. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown
9. Leave to cool. 
10. Once cool, add the pizza sauce and toppings. Remember to keep the toppings separated from each other so that it creates a rainbow effect. 
11. Baked for a further 10-15 minutes. 
12. Serve while warm with homemade kumara chips.

Bon appetit x
