Step 1

Remove the leaves of the cauliflower. Finely grate the cauliflower with a kitchen grater or a food processor.

Step 2

Put the fine cauliflower rice in the microwave for about 4-5 minutes to soften it.

Step 3

Drain the cauliflower rice, wrap in a fresh tea towel and squeeze well. It is best to let the cauliflower cool down a little before expressing it so that no one burns their hands.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Step 5

Mix cauliflower rice, cheese, egg and spices and knead into an even dough.

Step 6

Prepare the baking tray. To do this, place a sheet of Toppit's® baking paper on the baking tray. Nothing sticks to the Toppits® baking paper and you don't need any extra fat to avoid baking.

Step 7

Now the pizza dough is formed. To do this, squeeze the dough on the Toppits® baking paper into a uniform circle. None of this slips here: The bottom of the baking paper is non-slip – so that everything stays in place when you shape your pizza dough.

Step 8

Bake the pizza for 25 minutes and remove from the oven. Put the desired topping such as spinach, bell pepper, ham & Co. on the pizza base. Then bake the cauliflower pizza for another 10 minutes.
