We all love pizza, but there are healthy and covered in pepperoni, dripping in cheese, not so healthy pizza’s. As part of this month Recipe Redux challenge (Healthy Pizza) I decided to experiment using courgette in my pizza base. You may remember the cauliflower pizza base craze? Well here is another variation. Why courgette I hear you cry? I’m always on the lok out for new courgette recipes as we grow loads of them in the garden every summer. Plus this recipe just involved some grating and stirring, a simple, quick way to make a base.
Here is the base before it was cooked for the first time:
And here is the final pizza which was wolfed down by my toddler (who has decided recently she doesn’t like courgettes very much but liked this!). It ends up being more like an omelette than a pizza base consistency but it works well as a lunch or I’d team it with potato wedges for a dinner.
Using cauliflower to make a pizza base? Yes it really does work and it’s delicious! No rising process either and as it is low in carbs you could add some homemade garlic bread on the side to make a really tasty treat 😉
Top tips: make sure you leave the cauliflower to cool after the microwave part and give it a super good wring out, it will make a better base. The cheese is essential as it is pretty much the glue so you do need to use it but a half fat version would work too.
