Cauliflower Crust Pizza with Kale and Roasted Garlic Sauce


INGREDIENTS:

Pizza Dough

  • 1 small cauliflower head, cut in florets
  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 organic egg (replace with ground flax for the vegan version)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Topping

  • 1 cup kale, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, cut in thin rings
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tbsp tomato sauce
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 2 organic eggs
  • freshly ground black pepper

Sauce

  • 1 medium garlic bulb, roasted (it can be roasted along with pizza)
  • 1 tsp tahini (sesame paste)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

METHOD:

  1. Heat the oven at 200°C/392°F
  2. Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse to obtain a rice-like texture that won’t stick together. Don’t process it too much because it will turn into a very wet pure and will need more baking time (if the machine bowl is small, you might need to make this in two batches).
  3. Transfer the cauliflower into a large bowl, add buckwheat flour, salt, eggs and mix to obtain a wet “dough” ball.
  4. Transfer the cauliflower ball onto a pizza stone, press it to spread and make ½ inch thick pizza crust shape.
  5. Brush the top with coconut oil and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Flip over and bake for another 15 minutes.
  7. While the crust is baking, prepare the kale topping – heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet, add kale, season with salt and cook for 5 minutes over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  8. Remove from the oven, spread it with tomato sauce, add mozzarella, cooked kale, and onion rings and bake for five minutes, until mozzarella is melted.
  9. Crack eggs on top and bake for two more minutes.
  10. Place the sauce ingredients in the blender and process to obtain a creamy liquid.
  11. Season with freshly ground pepper and serve right away, with garlic sauce.
