The method


Pre-heat your oven to 200°C. Put a pot of water onto boil and break your cauliflower into florets.


Once boiling, add the florets to the water and cook for 4 minutes then drain well.


Once cooled and dried, transfer to a food processor and blitz until it forms a couscous like consistency. Pour into a bowl and mix well with the egg and grated parmesan, season to your liking.


Once well mixed, spread the mixture onto a lined baking tray, spray with olive oil and press into a pizza shape using a spatula. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and firm.


Chop the garlic and fry in some olive oil along with the chilli flakes. After 1 minute, add in the passata. Reduce until you have a thick, spreadable consistency. Add in the basil and season to your liking.


Spread the tomato sauce over the pizza base and then tare pieces of the mozzarella for the top. Feel free to add any other toppings you may wish.


Place back into the oven for 10 minutes until the cheese is golden. Scatter with rocket and enjoy!
