i’ve been wanting to try a cauliflower-base pizza recipe for ages but struggled a bit to decide which recipe to use as there is a wide variety of options. eventually i decided to use anna jones’ any night of the week pizza from a modern way to eat, which uses a mix of cauliflower, oats, ground almonds, oregano, eggs and seasoning,plus i added some grated parmesan.
i also tweaked the topping – i love the simplicity of blitzing together tomatoes, basil and olive oil but wanted something with a greater depth of flavour so, as well as adding seasoning, i added some tomato puree and a little sugar. i used the suggested mozzarella, spinach and shaved fennel as toppings but also added some yellow courgette ribbons and parma ham, plus i added a little mint to the basil i sprinkled on just before serving.
the result was delicious both hot and cold - but not really very pizza-like; it’s also not too strongly favoured of cauliflower, in case you’re unsure about that. i will definitely make this again but want to experiment with making two thinner pizzas, rather than just the one.
