Also, for anyone that is gluten free or just wants to be healthy but misses the satisfaction of biting into a pizza this is the recipe for you. I make it frequently for the family and everyone agreed; it’s better than real pizza!
Plus broccoli (or cauliflower which works very well too) is high in vitamin C, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds such as Indole-3-carbinol, research suggests that is has cancer and heart protective properties.Furthermore, it’s actually really simple to make.
Here’s the recipe – Basically grate 2 or 3 discarded broccoli or/and cauliflower stems then boil the gratings for 5 minutes, drain and squeeze out all the water in a tea towel or muslin/cheese cloth. You want the pulp to be extremely dry so that when it cooks it crisps up.
Now mix in one egg and 100g of cream cheese. Divide and press flat onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Whilst the pizza base is cooking you could use the time to make a passata tomato sauce with a tin of tomatoes, a clove or garlic, some chopped onion, salt and pepper.
TOP TIP: If you’re a fan of juicing, this would be an excellent way to use up all the discarded vegetable fibre from your juice machine.
