All of the good stuff and not too much of the bad stuff and all made by my granddaughter's fair hand. We've included a picture of the base too, to give an idea of what it looks like. Ours was a family share pizza, hence all the different toppings.
This recipe is for a basic cheese pizza with cauliflower base, you can add any toppings you like, but don't forget to add that to your nutrition count.
Our toppings include ham, pineapple, orange pepper, sweetcorn, smoked sausage, pepperoni and anchovies, but the options are endless.
This base is not as firm as a dough based pizza, but if you cook it for long enough, it can be eaten carefully with the fingers, unless you pile too much topping on it
PIZZA BASE INGREDIENTS (makes 2 large pizzas, 8 slices for each):
1 large cauliflower (I use leaves and everything)
250g grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp mixed herbs (optional)

Grate the cauliflower by hand, or in a food processor
Cook gently in a wok/large frying pan until very soft - aim to cook off as much liquid as possible
Beat the eggs and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese
Add the cauliflower and mix well
Line two pizza trays with parchment paper
Divide the cauliflower mixture between the two and squash to fit the trays, ensuring to build up the edges slightly, to form a crust.
Cook for approximately 30 mins, or until browned and firm'ish to touch on 180 deg C/160 for fan assisted ovens/gas mark 4
Remove from oven and leave to cool, then carefully slide off parchment paper onto lightly greased pizza tray.
Add toppings and return to oven until cheese has melted.
