Preparation method

  1. For the soil
  2. Preheat the oven to 220 ° C.
  3. Cut half the cauliflower into small blocks so that they fit into the mill of the hand blender. Finely chop the cauliflower in the mill until it has become a kind of snow (small grains of rice grains).
  4. Put the ‘cauliflower snow’ in a microwave-safe bowl, together with 5 tablespoons of water. Let the cauliflower in the microwave cook for 5 minutes at the highest setting.
  5. Toss the cauliflower crumbs in a clean dry tea towel and squeeze out all the moisture. Note: Let the cauliflower cool down for 10 minutes, otherwise it is too hot to squeeze out. All the moisture has to be squeezed out of the cauliflower, leaving a dry mass.
  6. Mix the squeezed cauliflower with the egg, protein and herbs, add salt and pepper to taste and form a nice ball of dough from the mass. 
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the cauliflower mass over the baking paper and form into a nice round thin pizza base. 
  8. Bake the pizza in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes. Look halfway if the pizza does not burn.
  9. Before the siege cut the bell pepper into strips and the mushrooms into slices.
  10. Remove the pizza bottom from the oven after 15 minutes and brush with the pasta sauce.
  11. Spread the peppers, mushrooms, bacon strips and cottage cheese light over the pizza.
  12. Bake the pizza for another 15 minutes in the middle of the oven. 
  13. Check again that it is not burning. 
  14. Sprinkle the pizza with some freshly ground black pepper.
  15.  Enjoy your meal!
