Y’know when you shout about something long enough you hope one day you might get an answer? Well, that’s what happened with this one.
Over two years of waiting and one magical moment, upon entering waitrose and heading up the pizza aisle, my wish had come true. Welcome to the commercial world, cauliflower pizza.
With some added wheat, but still, beggars can’t be choosers.
We had some rice left over in the fridge that needed eating. Adding it underneath the cheese was one of those unexpected surprises. Try it. Sinking your teeth through to the base gives the illusion of eating double of the amount of cheese. Oh hey heaven.
Friday evening in. Vegan Cauliflower pizza. It tastes so naughty but all the ingredients make it nice.
Handful of cooked rice
2 tbsp Passata
1/2 Yellow pepper
Koko vegan cheese
1tsp dried Basil
1tsp dried oregano
1 handful of rocket
Pop oven onto 180 degrees to warm up.
Boil the kettle and put your handful of rice into a saucepan. Cover the rice with the boiling water and leave to boil for around 15-20minutes.
Meanwhile take pizza crust out of the packaging and evenly spread passata over the base, leaving the edges free from any sauce.
Sprinkle your basil and oregano over the base.
Grate 1/2 packet of your koko cheese and set aside.
Chop your beetroot and yellow peppers into thin slices.
Remove your rice from the heat and strain.
Sprinkle the handful of rice over the pizza base. Then the cheese. Layer up the beetroot and add the yellow pepper.
Cook for 15 minutes or until the edges of the pizza have started to crisp.
Remove from the oven and garnish with a bit of rocket on top.
Drizzle over some olive oil and get yourself ready for some real good eating.
