I can finally say I’ve mastered the technique to make the perfect cauliflower pizza crust. I’ve tried so many different ideas, changing a bit here and there, willing to get a version that doesn’t fall apart.
Today I’m proud to say I’ve achieved that! This is the BEST Cauliflower Pizza Crust EVER! This crust is perfect and simply has the best texture and flavour you can imagine. Put your fork on the side and embrace a delicious slice of pizza with your hands. 🙂
½ head of cauliflower, shredded
2 cups of water
2 tablespoons of cream cheese
1 teaspoon of salt
Black pepper to taste
Add water and shredded cauliflower in a pan. Once it starts boiling, cook for 3 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let it cool down.
After the cauliflower has cooled enough – like lukewarm temperature, strain the liquid out placing it on a cheesecloth or a thin tea cloth, squeezing very well. Squeeze it until you can’t see any drops of water coming out of it. Nobody likes a soggy crust!
Next, add the strained cauliflower together with the rest of the ingredients to a medium bowl and mix everything until well combined.
Place a baking sheet on a pizza tray and pour the batter over it. Use a spoon or spatula to make it even and in a circular shape.
Bake the crust for 20 minutes at 180C (356F).
It’s done! You can top your crust with any filling you like, here I added tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, black olives, and cherry tomatoes. Pizza time! 🍕
I totally love ❤️ cauliflower, such a versatile veggie. I cook with it all the time, always making something different and delicious. That’s why I’ve decided to create 4 videos with yum recipes using cauliflower, and this is the first one: Stir-fried cauliflower rice with eggs.
Stir-fried rice with eggs is one of my favourite Asian dishes, and although I eat regular rice on a few occasions, having a replacement for it would be amazing. Having said that, I’ve created this version using cauliflower rice instead, and the result is spot on!
This recipe serves two people and you can change a bit adding other veggies, or maybe season it differently. I usually add carrots and capsicum. YUM!
This is a very special month for us, as you can see; our channel is turning 2! Yep, two years of amazing recipes.
And to celebrate with you – who else, right? – we’ve decided to make one of my favourite cakes: Coconut and Chocolate Birthday Cake. In Brazil this is a very popular cake, usually called Prestígio cake, same name as a famous chocolate bar (similar to Boost).
Of course, I’ve managed to create it in a guilty-free version. 😀 Amazing, I know!
The cake and coconut filling are gluten free, nut free and dairy free, with a minimum of honey to give it just a bit of sweetness. For the frosting, I got better results using pure cream, but this is totally replaceable with coconut cream for a dairy free version.
So, how about you making it for your next birthday too? Your guests will love it, for sure!
Hot Cross buns are made especially to celebrate Easter. Yep, Easter is not only about chocolate, you know? They are somewhat spicy and can be made using dried fruit or chocolate chips. I love them served warm with a bit of butter and jam.
In case you don’t celebrate Easter, no dramas my friend, just make them as a delicious snack and be happy!
½ cup of coconut flour
5 tablespoons of psyllium husk
½ cup of raisins
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 teaspoon of ground cloves
1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
2 ½ teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of honey (or any sweetener you like)
7/8 cup (a little less than a full cup) of boiling water
2 tablespoons of coconut flour
5 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon of coconut oil
In a small bowl mix all ingredients until well combined.
Pour the mixture in a plastic or piping bag and reserve. The plastic bag will help to shape the cross, but you can use a spoon instead.
In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients making sure to mix them well.
Then, add in the eggs, vinegar, raisins and mix them until you have a thick dough.
Now it’s time to add the boiling water and mix everything until nicely combined and there is a dough consistency.
Split the dough into 8 small buns and place them in a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
If you are not using a piping bag: get the plastic bag with the paste mixture and cut a small piece of its edge.
Next, draw a cross at the top of each bun.
Bake the buns in a preheated oven at 180C for 30 minutes.
It’s done! They are perfect when served warm and with butter or jam.
