I am not a huge fan substituting everything I used to eat: soy burgers, frankfurters and soy yogurts make me just confused. I`m not that smart, you know, it is easy to confuse me:P. Fun to try out but I wouldn’t include them in my everyday diet. Plants in their natural (or at least recognisable) form are the best. But this was a special occasion – my best friend visited me after a YEAR and she had cravings for pizza…and I remembered seeing cauliflower-crust pizza somewhere… (we are both
rather vegan and gluten-free) – so we decided to go for it. This was a decision we didn’t have to regret (like we would regret anything:p)
Let me present proudly, my first and only guest post from girl with a ridiculously expensive hand blender
“For the world’s best cauliflower crust pizza you need:
- 2 best friends
- 1 cauliflower
- ca 100 ml oat flour
- 200 ml almond flour
- 100 ml water
- 3 egg substitute (I have powder version – added 3 tbsp)
Grate your cauliflower, until not too small – rice-like pieces are OK.
Mix it, mix it all together.
Throw it playfully in the air, until you get a nice round shape. Obviously a joke, BUT we know a person, who knows a person, who claims, that she can actually do it. That person can cheerfully eat my face.
We pressed it on a griddle and precooked it 15-20 minutes at 220C.
- 1 carlic
- 1 onion
- Olive oil
- 6-8 peeled tomatoes
Throw olive oil, chopped carlic and onion in a pot. Fry it 5-7 minutes? Who cares, how long. Add tomatoes and the rest. Stew it as long as you possibly can – longer is better. Leave it on a balcony to cool down. What about the birds?!?!? We don´t give a fuck about the birds!
Cherry tomatoes (for fun!)
250g of fried mushrooms
Shred it, chop it, bisect it and throw it on the pizza (tomato sauce is already there!). In the oven it goes – 220C for who knows how long – steal a piece of bellpepper or carrot time to time and you´ll figure it out!
Eat yourself silly.
Steal food from the pan and eat it behind the door, so noone could see you (that´s what I did).
Fight for the last piece.
Cry in the morning, because there´s nothing left. ”
p.s. Pizza was also tested on one boyfriend with exceptionally good taste (keeps loving everything I cook). So Highly recommended!
p.p.s. this was also my birthday weekend – and this was my this year birthday song.
