Crust Ingredients

1 Whole Cauliflower Head

1 Egg, beaten

1/3 cup Soft Goats Cheese (Chevre)

1 tspn Dried Oregano

Pinch of Salt

Method:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Pulse cauliflower florets in batches in a food processor, until “rice-like” consistency.
  2. Fill a large pot with about an inch of water, bring to the boil, add the rice and cover. Cook for about 4-5mins. Drain in a fine mesh strainer.
  3. Once you have strained the rice, transfer it to a clean thin tea towel, wrap up, twist and squeeze all the excess moisture out (be careful not to burn your hands).
  4. In a large bowl, place the rice, egg, cheese, spices and mix really (really) well.
  5. Press the dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, keep it about 1/3 inch think and shape to your liking.
  6. Bake for 30-40mins until firm and golden brown.

Now it’s time to add your flavours!!!
