The internet is full of pictures and recipes for cauliflower pizza base. It took a while for me to give it a try. I just couldn’t imagine that it can work, I was worried about the consistency as well as about the taste. But then I saw a very tempting cauliflower pizza picture in Lola Berry book, that I just had to try. This is the result of my first cauliflower pizza.
When I tasted the first bite of this pizza I was so sceptical, but that one bite was enough to understand why there are so many cauliflower pizza lovers. This pizza was delicious, I would even say, it is much better than pizza with regular wheat base. It is so nicely moist and has a perfect nutty flavour. You definitely have to try this out.
Last week I was craving for this pizza, but had only broccoli at home. After short search I found a great broccoli base recipe by tohercore.com. It was not as moist as the cauliflower baser I baked the first time, but still it was super yummy.

2 tbsp psyllium husk
1 garlic glove
40g buckwheat flour

- Take the base out of the oven, pour over the tomato puree and add the topping ingredients, you can put what ever you are up to.
