The easy pizza
Pizza with a difference
This pizza is a lot easier to make than the traditional pizzas which use flour, yeast, oil and water for the crust. My version uses a vegetable mixed with the flour and egg. This is a great way to give your kids vegetables without them knowing. You could use carrot, swede, turnip, or whatever you have to hand. I had some uncooked cauliflower so I used that.
For the base crust I used:
A cup of bread flour
a cup of whizzed up cauliflower. If you grate the cauli until if becomes a fine powder it mixes easily with the flour. After grating the cauliflower, I microwaved it for five minutes to take the rawness off it.
50 grams of cream cheese
50 grams of semi hard cheese. I used Gouda.
Half a small onion
one egg, beaten.
salt and pepper to taste.
For the topping, the choice is yours. I used:
four button mushrooms
Firstly I fried the sausages and the mushrooms and let them cool.
Then I grated the cauliflower and added the beaten egg and flour to it.
Then I mixed in the cream cheese and some of the diced onion and add the salt and pepper.
Spread this mixture on an oiled baking tray. With your oven pre - heated to 220C gas mark 7
place the baking tray in the top of the oven for fifteen minutes.
When the time is up, remove the crust from the oven and top it with crumbled sausage, mushrooms, cheese and the rest of the onions.
Place back in the oven for ten minutes or until it's bubbling and delicious.
