FMTV - Perfect Pizza

Perfect Pizza

Exclusive on FMTV

Series: Food Matters Main Meal Recipes | Episode: 4 | Runtime: 4m 28s | Release date: 2015

This segment features: James Colquhoun.

A lower-carb alternative to regular pizza that sneaks in some extra veg! We love this Italian-style topping, but you can add as many extra veggies as you like to make it your own!

Serves: 2

Why it’s so good for you:

Traditional pizza bases are heavy in gluten-rich flour that can be difficult to digest and leave you feeling sluggish. This cauliflower base adds some extra veggies to your meal making it nutrient-rich, light on your stomach, and it tastes amazing!

Featuring:
James Colquhoun

hello thanks for this recipe it looks really good. Is almond meal the same as ground almonds used in sweet dishes?

Hi Lorraine, almond meal is made from ground almonds, though typically has a more coarse texture and contains the skins ~ Ivory :)

Hello, Susan! 1 egg is equal to 2.5 tablespoons ground flax mixed with 3 tablespoons water, set in fridge for 10 minutes. For more substitution guide, please check here https://www.foodmatters.com/article/easy-egg-substitutions-a-how-to-guide :) ~ Pauline

How many cups of cauliflower already chopped would that be? I can buy pre chopped cauliflower....
Also, why is tomato paste used instead of a tomato sauce with tomatoes,garlic, herbs and olive oil - already made and no other ingredients added?
Thanks!

Hi Sal, one cauliflower is approximately 840 Grams you should get about 3 and 1/2 cups from one. We prefer to use tomato paste because tomato paste is a concentrated form of tomato puree, and has a thicker consistency to tomato sauce as well as a richer taste. Hope you enjoy this recipe! :) ~ Iris

Hi guys! Just a question: do I have to use almond flour or is it possible to use arrowroot flour? As always, thanks for your wonderful support comments!

Hi Adriana! Arrowroot powder is usually used as a thickener. You can try experimenting by replacing the volume of almond meal required with the equivalent volume of almond flour, polenta or semolina. Just to add, almond meal is readily available in most grocery stores, typically stocked in the baking or gluten-free sections, and can easily be made at home. ~ Jasmin

Can you freeze one of the bases if only cooking for one?

Hi Carmel, you can store the leftover pizza dough in an air tight container in the freezer :) ~ Joyce
