Ingredients


Measurements:

  • 10½ oz cauliflower

    chopped

  • 1½ tbsp olive oil

    divided

  • ⅓ cup (1¾ oz) buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup (1½ oz) grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp flaky sea salt
  • ½ tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg

Instructions

  • 1Put the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until it resembles rice. You should have 2½ cups.
  • 2Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
  • 3Transfer the cauliflower rice to the center of a clean tea towel. Gather the edges of the tea towel, twist and squeeze out the excess liquid. Transfer to a bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • 4To make the pizza, turn the ON/OFF switch to the ON position and PREHEAT the pizza oven for 15 minutes.
  • 5Spoon the cauliflower dough into the center of a lightly floured 11 ¾-inch square piece of parchment paper. Use floured fingertips to press into a 8-inch round.
  • 6Spread the remaining oil over the cauliflower crust. Top with toppings of choice.
  • 7Select the CLASSIC crust setting.
  • 8Transfer the pizza (still on the parchment paper) to the hot pizza stone and close the lid. Cook for 6 minutes.
  • 9Open the lid and quickly slide the parchment paper out carefully. Close the lid and cook for a further 4-6 minutes until the crust is browned. Monitor the cooking progress through the viewing window. Topping should be cooked and golden and crust crisp and brown.
  • 10Open the lid carefully with oven mitt and use a large spatula to transfer the pizza to a cutting board.
