We all know by now that we can make pizza from cauliflower but most of the time it requires egg or cheese to hold the cauliflower together, so I decided to try and make it vegan and keep it gluten free and I finally perfected the recipe and it’s a winner!
Ive never really been a big pizza fan, you know the doughy pizza base with tomato sauce, cheese and pepperoni so making it more appealing for me was a big mission.
This base holds so well together that you can easily slice it and eat with your hands. I love to top mine with pesto (my preferred choice over tomato sauce) or a delicious muhammara and of course lots of veggies and sometimes some homemade tofu ricotta.
Of course if you like a tomato sauce pizza feel free to add this on with whatever veggies you like, and that’s the great thing about pizza, you can be as creative as you like!
