Aida’s Amazing Gluten-Free Pizza

Aida’s Amazing Gluten-Free Pizza

We got into the spirit of Spring and decided to plant some seeds earlier this month, choosing to grow parsley, tomato, butter lettuce, basil and arugula. Desperate to take advantage and cook with our own fresh produce, we asked Aida for a nice recipe that would show off our veggies, and she whipped the Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza out of her book of tricks! Get ready, this is one of her best inventions yet. 

Gluten & Grain-Free Cauliflower Pizza Dough

Ingredients

• ½ head cauliflower (about 2 cups riced)
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
• 1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
• 1 egg, beaten
• 1 tbs. mixed Italian herbs (basil, oregano, rosemary, marjoram)

Method

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. 

TOP a cookie sheet pan with parchment paper, oiled with olive oil. 

REMOVE the stems from cauliflower florets and CHOP into chunks. 

ADD cauliflower to a food processor and PULSE until the texture is grainy. This is "ricing". If you don't have a food processor, use a fine grater for the same result.

SAUTE grainy cauliflower in a dry non-stick skillet over low heat.

COOK until translucent - approximately 6-8 minutes.  

REMOVE from heat and allow to cool. 

MIX in the minced garlic, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, beaten egg and Italian herbs to the cauliflower.

ROLL all ingredients together and FORM a ball (similar to a pizza dough ball). 

SPREAD dough about ½ inch thick and 9 inch in diameter. 

BAKE for 25- 30 minutes until a golden crust forms.

REMOVE the crust from the oven.


 

 
 
  

ADDING YOUR SAUCE & TOPPINGS

MAKE YOUR OWN TOMATO SAUCE
Ingredients

• 1 clove garlic
• Ripe tomatoes, seeded
• Tomato paste
• Salt & Pepper
• Olive oil

Method

GRATE seeded tomatoes, using a grater.

HEAT olive oil in pan.

ADD clove of garlic for flavor and DISCARD after it browns.

ADD tomato purée.

COOK in pan until thickened.

ADD a little tomato paste to taste.

SEASON with salt and pepper.

 
MAKE YOUR PIZZA MARGHERITA
Ingredients

• Tomato Sauce
• 2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
• Mozzarella cheese, sliced
• Olive oil
• Fresh Basil leaves
• Cauliflower pizza crust, pre-cooked

METHOD

SPREAD tomato sauce over crust – you don’t want to use too much as it will weigh the crust down and also add moisture.

ADD fresh mozzarella and fresh tomato slices.

DRIZZLE a bit of olive oil.

RE-HEAT pizza in oven for another 5-7 minutes.

REMOVE from oven and ADD fresh basil leaves.

Sounds delicious and healthy….best of all, I think my 2 1/2 year old will LOVE it! I recently bought some prepared pizza dough, only to discover a new ingredient called L-cystine (an enzyme made from human hair collected from the floors in barbershops in China).....needless to say, never made the pizza…..so this recipe comes with great timing!! Can’t wait to make it!! Thanks Aida!!
