Pizza Margherita

Recipe for 4 persons

  1. 600 g cauliflower
  2. 40 g grated Parmesan cheese
  3. 50 g ground almonds
  4. 1 big or 2 small eggs
  5. 400 g tomato paste
  6. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  7. 150 g mozzarella cheese in brine, dried and sliced
  8. salt and pepper
  9. 2 teaspoons of spices (basil, oregano, rosemary, etc.)


  1.  Preheat oven to 200 °C. Line a low baking tray with paper for baking.
  2.  Put cauliflower into a food processor (blender) and finely mill (slices should resemble coconut flakes). Put the milled cauliflower into a bowl.
  3.  Add the Parmesan cheese, almonds, beaten egg, season with salt and pepper to taste and mix thoroughly.
  4.  Put the milled cauliflower onto the baking paper and shape it as a round thin base for pizza (30 cm in diameter, 0.5 cm thick).
  5.  Bake it for 25 minutes in a preheated oven until the base acquires golden brown colour and becomes solid by touch.
  6.  While the base is baked, prepare the tomato sauce. Pour tomato paste into a saucepan; add spices, salt and some olive oil. Cook the sauce for 10 minutes at medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  7.  Put the tomato sauce on the baked base and cover with mozzarella slices.
  8.  Season the pizza and bake it in a preheated oven for 10 minutes until the cheese melts and the cauliflower base becomes crispy.

Lay out carefully the baked pizza on a wide dish. Cut into pieces and serve.
