Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 medium-sized cauliflower, grated (by hand or in a food processor until it’s rice-sized, but not pulverised) and par-cooked, well drained, cooled slightly and water squeezed out.
  • 100 g goat's cheese, or grated cheddar cheese.
  • 1 egg.
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

Topping

  • 1/4 cup homemade tomato sauce, you can also use tomato paste.
  • 100 g ham-off-the-bone.
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese.

Directions

1. To make the Ham and Cheese Cauliflower Pizza: preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper. In a bowl, mix the cauliflower with the cheese and egg, and season with salt and pepper.

2. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, shape the mixture into 1 large pizza base or 4 small crusts. The bases should be about 1–1 1/2 cm thick. Bake for about 30–35 minutes, or until firm and golden, then remove from oven.

3. To make the topping, smear the Homemade Tomato Sauce or tomato paste over the base. Sprinkle half the cheese and then scatter the ham on top. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese.

4. Bake for a further 8–10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and serve warm.


Note

This recipe calls for 1/4 cup tomato paste, which equates to around 1/4 teaspoon sugar per serve. If you'd like the recipe for Homemade Tomato Sauce you can find it in the I Quit Sugar Kids Cookbook.
