I have recently taken to juicing. I bought a juicer a few weeks ago and use it every morning to ensure I get some veg/fruit goodness. However, I have always felt it was a waste, throwing away all the pulp afterward (well composting so not a total waste) and then, lo and behold, the Daily Telegraph had a recipe the other day for a pizza using the veg pulp as a base - genius!!! I just juice the veg (normally a carrot, cucumber, courgette and carrot) then take the pulp and put to one side. I then juice the fruit (apple, lemon and whatever is ripe in the garden) as I don't want fruit in the pizza base. Take the veg pulp and add an egg plus some flour (I use gluten free flour or rice flour) and seasoning (I use garlic as well as alt and pepper) and shape into flat pizza base then put in the oven to dry (gas mark 1 for as long as it takes - I do half an hour 'cos only a small amount). I then put any pizza topping I want and toast under the grill. Brilliant. I just had a pulp pizza with Mozarella, baby toms and tomato pulp - and it really was nice. Now just to work out what to do with the fruit pulp - I guess a sweet pizza is not out of the question??
